New kernmantle from Sterling for SRT! This line has the abrasion resistance of HTP with the softer hand and energy absorbtion that nylon provides. Stays round and works well in hardware like the Roperunner, Akimbo, Ropewrench. NFPA rating T and EN 1891. Excellent choice for single rope/work-positioning systems.

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.
WorkPro 7/16” 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.
