Hauling Ropes & Braids

New fibre developments and the greater demands in hauling programs have enabled Donaghys to add the Total Solution offer in hauling. Ultra High Modulus fibres (UHMwPE) enable rope constructions of superior strength to wire rope in light weight, low stretch and long continuous lengths for custom built requirements.

Your total solution can be provided with custom lengths, jackets and fittings, spliced on specialty reels or bulk cartons to meet your requirements.
