NYLON GROMMET is a round sling plied in half with protected thimbles at both ends to prevent the rope from wear. The galvanized thimbles are resistant to sea water. The construction provides for a combination of two braided ropes in one making the grommet well balanced, increasing its resistance to drop loads and protecting the core from wear; that makes the rope life longer even if used in extreme conditions. The grommets are made of UV-stabilized high tenacity Nylon yarn (9 g/den) of good elongation and low wear that allows to use grommets as a “spring” to absorb drop loads when towing ships by steel ropes.
