Pure Dyneema 5mm, per metre 
£3.00

Pure Dyneema 5mm, per metre

Pure Dyneema cord, 5mm, from Beal.Sold by the metre Strong and very static accessory cord,useful for light rigging and making footloops. Also invaluable for use with Amarrage Souples. Weighing only 15g per metre, it has a strength of 12KN, and 15KN as a sling. Dyneema has quite low friction, and therefore must always be tied with a double fisherman's knot, at least, if a sling is being made. The book 'The Technical Caving Manual' is very good on the latest uses of this very useful and functional gear.
Nylon tape sling, 18mm,120cm long 
£5.50

Nylon tape sling, 18mm,120cm long

Nylon tape sling, sewn. Made by Lyon equipment. Sewn sling for general rigging applications. Full strength, 18mm tape in black with red fleck. The length refers to the usable length i.e. what you see when you stretch it out, not the radius. This 120cm length is what would be called a 'four foot sling'. Strength 25kn.
Beal 16mm nylon tubular tape 
£1.44

Beal 16mm nylon tubular tape

Beal 16mm nylon tape. General purpose full strength tubular tape, supplied by the metre in up to 100m lengths. Strength 1350kg Remember that if you make slings out of this, the only recommended knot is the tape knot, and with a good long tail left on each side...there is always some slippage of these knots under initial tension.
Beal 6mm Accessory cord 
£0.84

Beal 6mm Accessory cord

Beal 6mm accessory cord. Very suitable to make prussik loops, lanyards for tackle bags, and mounting the Raumer etrier steps. Suited for low angle deviations especially with well placed lighweight rigging. Has been used in footloops, but lack of durability is a serious issue. If weight is such a consideration, the Alp Design dyneema footloop is massively superior. Static load 910 kg
C. C. 8mm Type L cord 
£1.10

C. C. 8mm Type L cord

An 8mm, and therefore clearly lighweight cord that has been used for very lightweight rigging, conforms to the EN564 standard for 'Type L' rope. Nonetheless we term this a 'cord' rather than a 'rope for SRT'... Also suited as a deviation cord, doubled as a rigging sling, and to make footloops. "The rope must never rub, and lightweight rope even more so!" - Alpine Caving Techniques, 3rd edition. Breaking load 1700kg, elongation under 150kg load is c.6.5%
