Kevlar® Black Snake Short Strop
The endless, parallel lay configuration of KEVLAR® fibres around the steel eyes is perfect for the construction of very short, high strength strops. Two leg systems using Black Snake KEVLAR® recovery strops have been used extensively in the underground coal (typically Longwall) operations throughout Australia. The lightweight and rugged construction suit the harsh, dirty conditions underground and the low elongation of the KEVLAR® and damping qualities of the rubber cover ensure low recoil in the event of over-loading the strop.
Kevlar® Black Snake Strop
The endless parallel lay configuration of the KEVLAR® fibres, coupled with high strength steel eyes encased in a thick, rubber cover, creates lightweight, rugged and very high break strength strops. Black Snake KEVLAR® Recovery strops are suitable for most recovery situations in mine operations and heavy duty applications. With over 18,000 KEVLAR® Recovery Strops produced, Black Snake KEVLAR® Recovery strops provide a practical and proven alternative to wire rope, chain or fibre rope/round-sling/webbing straps.
Nylon Black Snake Strop
The Black Snake Nylon Recovery Strop provides a heavy duty, industrial strength alternative to webbing snatch straps and kinetic nylon ropes. The Black Snake Nylon Recovery Strop incorporates nylon strands laid in an endless parallel lay construction into galvanised wire rope thimbles, the entire construction is then covered in a vulcanised, industrial grade rubber. This construction is very robust and has inbuilt protection for the load-bearing fibres along with excellent energy dampening qualities. With other nylon webbing straps, kinetic recovery nylon ropes and even nylon round-slings, the fabric construction make them susceptible to dirt, mud and abrasion damage. The soft eyes are particularly vulnerable to cutting and fraying from shackles, pins and hooks. The Black Snake Nylon Recovery Strop uses embedded heavy duty thimbles to eliminate cutting and fraying of the fibres.
