Samson's Velocity Hot brings eye-popping color to the one of the lightest climbing lines we sell. This 7/16" premium arborist line was developed by Samson specifically for tree care professionals who need quick and easy access to the tops of trees without being weighed down. Velocity has a unique construction, being a 24 strand spliceable double braid. It maintains a spliced strength of 6,000 lb. Right out of the bag this rope has a broken in feel, is very flexible and runs well through hardware. This is the best climbing line for the weight-conscious arborist. Available in “Cool” (Green/Blue/White) or “Hot” (Orange/Red/White.)

Quick Overview: 7/16” diameter, 6,000 ABS, 5.6 lb per 100’.

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.

Samson Velocity Hot rope 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.
