Chafe Gear

When extra defense from heat, the elements, cutting, abrasion, or ingress of dirt, mud or particulates is needed, added chafe protection can provide the solution. Cortland offers several chafe gear options as a sacrificial layer of protection, increasing the service life of a rope or sling and ensuring a safe and successful operation.

SX Chafe Guard
SX Chafe Guard

Combining the lightweight, non water-absorbing properties of HMPE fiber in a tightly braided cover sleeve, SX offers the best cut and abrasion resistance of all chafe gear. SX can be supplied with a high visibility polyurethane coating. Primary usage is in eye termination protection and can be seized or spliced into the 12x12 construction.

Cortland Cage

The Cortland Cage solution combines the lightweight, abrasion resistant, and non-water-absorbing properties of HMPE fiber in a braided cover sleeve. Cortland Cage can be secured in place by splice-termination or heavy duty whipping. The open braid pattern allows inspection of Plasma® 12x12 and reduces the total weight of the chafe gear. A proprietary polyurethane coating provides added protection in challenging marine environments.

Asgard
Asgard Chafe Sleeve

Asgard Chafe Protection is typically used for protection of lifting or mooring ropes and provides outstanding durability and resistance towards harsh operating conditions. The design features a strong, lightweight construction which is easy to install and retrofit on existing items. Asgard Chafe Protection is designed according to a given diameter of the item to be protected and is provided in lengths according to client specifications.

Asgard Chafe Protection is made from HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene) and PNW (polyester and/or nylon) fibers in a woven, laminated and PU-coated construction and built in a layered design. The fibers utilized are the toughest of the traditional synthetic fibers. Asgard Chafe Protection can be delivered in a flat construction for protection of webbing, or in a circular construction, for use on mooring ropes for instance.
