Teufelberger Rope's “The Fly” runs through gear effortlessly without getting mushy, and stays round and firm to give the climber a smooth, controlled descent. The Fly is designed for all vertical applications that interface with mechanical hardware. It offers the perfect combination of the low stretch characteristics of a static rope with the added safety of being able to withstand the forces and absorb some of the energy generated by a fall. The fly is easy to knot, resists flattening and glazing, and works well in hardware. Red and white pattern for good visibility.

ANSI Z133-2017

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.

The Fly Rope meets ANSI Z133-2017 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.
