Product Description

     

Our Polyester rope features:

  • Excellent UV and abrasion resistance.

  • Won't rot like cotton and other materials.

  • Low stretch (very important when supporting antennas).

  • It's strong (much stronger than Polypropylene).

  • It's soft and very easy to work with.

  • Round Design Works Great With Pulleys.
    Flat rope is very difficult to use on pulleys.

Common uses include;

  • Tents

  • Marine

  • Trotline

  • Awnings

  • Farm

  • Flagpole Rope

  • Antenna Support Rope such as

    • Dipole

    • Inverted V

    • Longwire (random length) antenna

    • Guy Rope

3/16" rope is the perfect size for supporting large ham radio wire antennas when you need a little more strength than 1/8".

 

Like 1/8" rope, this size easily fits through center and end insulator mounting holes and the break strength is much greater than 14 gage copper wire or 16 gage copper clad steel wire (copperweld)

 

Polyester is the best choice for antenna support rope or any outside application where strength, less stretch, UV and abrasion resistance is important.

  • Unlike Nylon, Polyester Rope is less elastic and therefore stretches much less. In fact Nylon Rope will stretch anywhere from 15 – 25% percent at it’s break point. Polyester on the other hand will normally stretch from 5 – 10%, at it's break point.

  • Nylon absorbs water and is 10-20% weaker when wet. Polyester is not affected by water and maintains its strength when wet.

  • Polyester Rope has better UV resistance, and is more abrasion resistant than nylon.

  • Polypropylene cost less but has limited resistance to ultraviolet light and is susceptible to friction.

DacRope® is 100% Polyester. Some rope manufacturers use a blend of polyester and other materials such as nylon or polypropylene and call it polyester.
Rope is only as durable as its weakest component. Before you purchase rope, always ask if it is 100% polyester.

  1. Time will tell but product appears to top quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2017

    I purchased this Dacron rope to provide guys for my hy-gain AV-640 vertical antenna. We get occasional fairly strong winds here in northern Georgia so decided that the manufacturer's claims of excellent wind tolerance ought to have a bit of extra assurance. The 3/16" size seemed about right so trust that it will do its job of protection for several years. I found the rope was easy to work with plenty of flexibility but the coiled configuration made untangling a bit of a chore. I would have preferred a simple circular coil with a tie or two..

    Overall, I'm pleased with the quality and hope time in the weather will prove out.

  2. Antenna rope 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2015

    Order was received as advertised. Shipment was made same day of order. Rope was easy to work with. Only problem was getting the Hank spread out without tangling. Would have been nice to be on spool like. You use for longer lengths
