Synthetic solutions built to save you time and money.
Industrial and construction projects pose many lifting and towing challenges where ropes need to be engineered strong and durable enough to perform the lift, while integrating with your hardware. For more than 40 years, Cortland has led the transition from steel wire ropes to synthetics in critical heavy lift industries, from marine to mining, helping operations run safer and smoother with a wide range of synthetic solutions.
We engineer synthetic fiber ropes that can absorb high dynamic loads, be spliced to tight tolerances, and resist elongation in use. At the same diameter, synthetics have the same strength as steel wire, but are only a fraction of the weight. They put less restriction on the capacity of cranes, are softer on the hands, and don’t mar the surfaces of the objects they lift.
Rig and lift the heaviest of loads quickly and safely.
Our high-performance synthetic ropes are extremely strong, durable and flexible. Easier to move and control, our ropes reduce rigging time, enabling your team to work safer and more efficiently. We engineer custom and standard solutions, and provide wear protection for added protection against sharp corners or abrasive surfaces.
Braided Rope Lifting Slings
Our UHMWPE rope lifting slings size-for-size have equal strength to steel, eliminating the need for new hardware. Multi-leg configurations are also available.
Made from high-performance synthetic fibers and featuring an endless-loop construction, our round slings ensure very low elongation under load. Encased in protective, wear-resistant jackets, the slings are suited for heavy lifts in extreme environments.
Tag lines are used to help stabilize a load while allowing on-site personnel to maintain a safe distance from the load. They are recommended in most situations to prevent damage to either the load, surrounding equipment and/or personnel.
Plasma® Braided Slings
Plasma® UHMWPE rope slings are extremely durable and have superior strength/weight benefits and elongation properties, making them the perfect lightweight lifting tool.
Cortland Selantic® Round Slings
Selantic® Slings from Cortland provide a safe, reliable, cost-effective and lightweight alternative to heavy chains and wire rope.
