A larger version of Teufelberger's Platinum line, the 11.5mm Platinum Arbor Access is closer to the 1/2” size many climbers are familiar with. The minimum breaking strength is greatly increased at this size, with only a minor increase in the weight of the line.
Platinum rope is designed to eliminate problems that can occur with Kernmantle access lines - namely cover slippage and bunching. The mechanical bonding of cover and core over the length of Platinum makes these problems a thing of the past. Platinum Arbor Access has been tested with ascenders and found to been an exceptionally compact and stable access line.
Quick Overview: 7,418 lb. minimum breaking strength - 9/20" (11.5mm) - Kernmantle

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboriculutral operations.
Arborist climbing lines are required to have a minimum breaking strength of 5,400 lb (24 kN) when new, and should be no smaller than 1/2” (12.7mm) unless the employee has been trained in the use of smaller line (down to 7/16” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.
Platinum meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards, so long as the user has been trained in the use of smaller diameter lines.
The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
