PLEASE NOTE: Weight measurements made according to the EN 892 standard.
For example, for a single rope, the rope must be exposed to 10 kg of tension for 1 minute in very precise temperature and moisture conditions.
This gives you the real weight of the rope, which is often superior to the weight given by the standard.
The weight measurement according to the standard is used to compare two ropes to each other.

WASHING THE ROPE:

It's important to properly care for your rope to reduce wear.
As dirt wears ropes down, we recommend:
1- using a rope cover;
2- If the rope is dirty, wash it with clean, lukewarm water.
Should stains persist and you want to wash it with soap, it is important to use a pH-neutral soap (such as Marseille/household soap) and then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
3- Air dry the rope out of the sun and away from all sources of heat.

STORING THE ROPE:

Ropes should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from light, humidity, and corrosive agents. Never leave ropes inside a car during summer, for example.

INSPECTING THE ROPE:

It is important to check your rope regularly. To do so, run the rope through your hands and inspect it metre by metre along its entire length. This will allow you to spot any nicks, cuts, abrasion or weak points. If you notice any anomalies or irregularities, if the core is visible in certain places, if the rope is deformed or has exceeded its fall rating, it must be changed. Take safety seriously!
