XTC 16-strand is one of the brightest arborist ropes you'll ever see. Reviews of this rope from tree climbers are great, it handles well, is firm, and very easy to spot in dense foliage.

This line is specifically designed for the demanding needs of arborists, embodying the same characteristics of XTC ropes Yale has made for the last two decades. With a full splash of bright high visibility yellow, orange and red fibers, XTC Fire is made from extrusion-dyed polyester, resulting in permanent coloration that won't fade or run with use. The tightly woven 16-strand construction with a high twist core of torque-balanced polyester keeps the line firm and round, providing an extra measure of safety and performance. This Spliceable line is available in 1/2” diameter with an average breaking strength of 6,200 pounds.

Three colors available: Fire (red/yellow/orange), Plus (red/white), and Poseidon (blue/orange).

Quick Overview: 1/2” diameter, 6,200 ABS, 7.5 lb per 100’.

Safety & Technical Information

Dynamic Energy in Arborist Rope

This great article at Yale Rope's website explains the how the ability of a rope to absorb impact is affected by the elasticity of the rope. Breaking strength is not the only important factor in determining if a rope is right for the job. Dynamic Energy in Arborist Ropes

ANSI Z133-2012

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.

XTC Fire rope meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards.

The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
