We offer high quality ropes for work, rock climbing, mountaineering, speleology, canyoning and ice climbing: professional ropes for working at heights, ropes for rescuers, firefighters and military needs.
If you’re shopping for a climbing rope, there are several aspects to consider. First of all is the type of the rope. The choice between single, half, twin and static ropes depends on what type of climbing you do. There are two main types of ropes: dynamic and static. Dynamic ropes are designed to stretch to absorb the impact of a falling climber, while static ropes stretch very little, making them very efficient in situations like lowering an injured climber, ascending a rope, or hauling a load up.
Very important is the diameter and length of the rope. The diameter and length of a rope affect the rope’s weight and durability. We all know that a skinnier rope is lighter; however, skinnier ropes can be less durable and require more skill to safely belay with. Thicker ropes can be more abrasion-resistant and often perform better when frequently used. Additionally, features like dry treatments and middle marks affect how you use the rope.
Static ropes, dynamic ropes, accessory cords, slacklines, webbing and elastic bands, household ropes, ropes for work, sports ropes and ropes for arborists as well as rope accessories and care products are available in one place – in sports and active leisure stores "Gandrs"!
