Advantages of the Plasma Rope

Kennedy Wire Rope & Sling Company has been in business for the last 35 years. During that time we have seen plasma ropes take an increasing role in many industrial applications as more people discover their benefits. Here are some of the benefits of plasma rope over steel wire ropes.


One of the advantages of the plasma rope is that the risk of injury when it snaps is reduced. This is because the rope does not store any energy when under strain. Steel wire ropes on the other hand store a lot of energy and will snap and whiplash, and this can cause injuries to bystanders, or damage goods or equipment.


Plasma ropes are up to eight times lighter than steel wires ropes. Its lighter weight makes it easier to handle and this also increases its safety. In certain operations it may require a good number of people to carry the steel wire rope.


Not only are plasma winch lines light they are also very strong. They have a very high strength to weight ratio compared to a steel rope. It has eight times lighter than a steel winch line of the same length.

Easy to Use

Handling is much easier because it is not as rough on the palm of your hands as steel winch lines are. Its lightness makes it easy to carry around.
