Rope Splicing

rope splicing

 

At Melbourne Rope, we offer additional rope splicing options with our online range. A splice is a simple and effective way of adding a loop to the end of your rope. This practical addition will make your rope more user friendly – ropes with splices are perfect for winching, pulling, mooring, and more. With our custom splicing options, you can increase the durability and strength of your rope.

Whilst tying a knot in your rope might seem like an immediate fix, the long-term benefits of professional splicing are clear. An eye splice will last longer than even the best-tied knot, especially when coupled with a stainless fitting. Most knots will halve the strength of your rope where eye splices can help you utilise your rope’s entire strength.

Advantages of Rope Splicing

• High strength connection
• Permanent loop
• Reduced strength decay
• Dynamic usage options
• Reduced stress on rope
• Rope strength retention

A stainless eye splice

Used where the point of attachment will suffer significant ware and friction over a prolonged period of time (Fixed size eye). Stainless splices are ideal for those with a specific task in mind. Whilst the stainless option is less versatile, it is stronger and ensures the durability of your splice. You can protect your connection and prevent fraying/general wear and tear with the stainless cap. 

Soft eye splice

The more versatile splice, soft eye splices are used more often because they allow the splice to be placed over a broad range of shapes and sizes. (Please specify the size of the eye you require in the comments section when you make purchase. If you do not have a preference, the eye size will be between 150 - 300mm depending on rope diameter)
