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 Z133-2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations.

Arborist Climbing Ropes 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.

Buzzz Line rope meets ANSI Z133-2017 standards.

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

Rated: Excellent Review by: Mason Ruddell/Certified Arborist/Owner

“I've been climbing since the 80s and for some reason never had the pleasure of running this line until today. This line is Very supple, maybe found my favorite. I'll see how it breaks in but I can't remember a line this easy to tie right out of the box. I use the old taut line hitch.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: BigShotATL

“I use this line to climb on, I like the idea that its over 7000 lbs abs, makes me feel safe. Its very soft and works well with prusiks and Blackes hitch. The line doesnt seem to fluff as much as other lower cost lines Ive used in the past. It does have some stretch but its not much. I have been using this line everyday for 50 climbs. It holds up. Good strong rope.”
