C. C. 6mm Accessory cord 
£0.80

C. C. 6mm Accessory cord

Cordes Courant 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. The orange and black cord in the middle of the image is the relevant one.
C. C. 8mm Type L cord 
£1.10

C. C. 8mm Type L cord

Cordes Courant 8mm static cord. Lightweight 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%

£1.20

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.
C.C. Equirial 10mm SRT rope 
£1.20

C.C. Equirial 10mm SRT rope

Well tested 10mm semi - static rope, made for caving by Cordes Courant in France. Type A. It is soft handling and retails its knot-ability with use. Affordable quality.

Gleistein Geostatic 9mm SRT rope 
£1.86

Gleistein Geostatic 9mm SRT rope

A very high specification 9mm semi static rope, which conforms to the Type A standard for working ropes (EN 1891). Available by the metre. German manufactured, light and long term flexible, the shrinkage is approximately 7%, and the weight 54g per metre. Breaking load is tested to 27KN. An ideal rope for personal use where cavers want to treat themselves! Gleistein has particularly gained a following among instructors, who generally use Type A ropes but prefer not to be heavily laden with the bulkier and heavier 10mm standards. Another advantage with flexible ropes such as this, is that knotting is easier, an advantage when demonstrating perfect rigging!

£4.50
