With UNICORE® as standard, bonding core and sheath for maximum security in all situations the ACCESS UNICORE® is a must for working in sharp and rough terrains. Access is an 11mm Type A semi-static rope made entirely (sheath and core) from Polyamide (PA).
UNICORE® is an astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, a frequent occurrence in the mountains, it slides and gathers over some metres. It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether ascending or descending (see illustration above).
We sell the ACCESS rope in 200mt rolls only.
