About Ropes

A modern textile rope of a specific diameter can be made to be stronger than a steel rope of the same diameter. Ropes are made either by twisting strands together and then folding these strands to make the required diameter, or they can be twisted and BRAIDED to make either a single braid rope, a double braid, or even a multi-layered braid.

Ropes have been used for millenniums for various applications. Today, ropes are sophisticated and made in many different forms and structures out of high performance fibres.

NAUTILUS BRAIDS only makes Braided ropes.

Braided ropes are stronger, wear better than twisted ropes and generally are much more flexible and user friendly.

Nautilus Braids’ ropes are braided either as a single or a double braid.

We have a range of braiding machines able to make long runs of rope from 0.5mm to 36mm in diameter with 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 18, 24 and 36-braid constructions.
