Ensure safe and steady operations with synthetic lines.
Stronger and lighter are two key elements of synthetic rope that make it the best choice for pulling overhead power lines and setting poles and transformers. Synthetic lines do not store energy like steel cables, and in the event of a failure it is much less likely to result in severe injuries caused by the recoil of broken wire cables.
Non-conductive and lightweight, our synthetic lines enable safer operations on critical infrastructures of all sizes around the world—from high voltage transmission lines to local distribution lines.
Strong, lightweight solutions for easy and secure handling.
Reduce operation costs with lightweight synthetics that provide the same strength of steel wire but are much safer and easier to work with. Whether your solution requires high strength, low stretch, heat or abrasion resistance, Cortland manufactures a wide range of solutions for winch, transmission, distribution and stringing lines.
Our Plasma® and Spectra® lines are high strength, abrasion resistance, low stretch, easy to splice, torque-free for no twisting, and stay round and firm around blocks and sheaves. Different color coatings are available for easy identification.
On the booms of utility trucks nationwide, synthetic rope has largely displaced wire cable; offering greater safety, lightweight benefits, and reduced wear and tear on winch motors.
High-performance synthetic messenger lines can be properly tensioned to resist the expected loading, while keeping sag between supports safe and within acceptable limits.
High-performance lifting slings aid in precision placement of critical structures for construction, maintenance, and emergency response operations.
Digger Derrick Winch Lines
A wide range of winch lines for pulling overhead power lines and setting poles and transformers. Our synthetic lines are safer, lighter and easier to handle than steel.
Whether you operate a bucket truck, boom truck or davit crane, super strong flexible high-performance ropes provide all the strength of wire rope at only 1/7th of the weight.
