Machine Splicing

For the firmest and most compact splice available, Donaghys can splice products on the braiding machine for custom rope requirements.

Soft Eye Splice Applications

  • Flexible soft eye which can be tailored for inner eye sizing
  • All rope constructions i.e. 3 strand, 8, 12, 16 and 24 plait can be spliced

Captive Thimble Eye & Gusseted Tube Thimble

  • Both suited to heavy duty applications
  • Captive thimble retains synthetic ropes within thimble under high loads and allows unrestricted use of heavier fittings e.g. shackles and rings
  • Gusset prevents the expansion or distortion of thimble under high loads, but reduces the size of connecting fitting that can be used

  • A flexible continuous rope join primarily for 12 strand ropes
  • Join to be positioned between bearing point and load
  • Realises 1.6 times strength of braid tensile

Tube Webbing & Chafe Guard Serving

  • Available for soft eye covering or both eyes and full body
  • Protects from grit which can cause internal or external damage through abrasion
  • Applying to eye gives added life by protecting at the bearing point

  • Manufactured from Ocean12 Dyneema SK75® Urethane coated
  • Tensile strength 419.4 Tons
  • Fitted with a 96mm marine grade cast steel galvanised captive thimble each end
  • The body of the strop is covered with a rubber tube for added protection to reduce abrasion and prevent penetration of debris into the rope fibres

Drum Winding
