KM-III’s unique polyester sheath differentiates KM-III from other static ropes. The polyester sheath is balanced with a nylon core to limit rotation, bouncing, and stretch with exceptional UV resistance. KM-III is NFPA and CE approved, and comes with an NFPA certification tag and CE labels. This is one of the most durable static ropes available with the handling and knotability you expect from New England (TEUFELBERGER). The sheath of the KMIII is made with a 32 carrier sheath design. 32 carriers provide a middle ground between a stiffer, durable 16 carrier design but its harder to work with and a 48 carrier design that is softer and easier to work with but is not as durable. KMIII combines the better characteristics of both which allows for an incredibly smooth sheath, higher tensile strengths, and superior handling characteristics.
