Platinum 10.5mm Rope is a unique Kernmantle from Teufelberger ropes built for top performance in SRT climbing systems. At regular intervals along the rope, fibers from the core pass through the jacket. This limits the amount of slippage of sheath and core, and keeps this Kernmantle working at peak performance.

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.
