Splicing

Strong Loops that Last Longer

A splice is a simple and clean way of adding a loop to the end of a rope. The major advantage offered by a splice over a knot are a stronger working load, cleaner appearance, more permanency and less susceptibility to catching or snagging. Although splicing requires the right tools to be used, it is important to have the required skill sets to carry out perfect rope splicing. Furthermore, the method followed and the tools used hugely depends upon the type of the rope. Splicing is the preferred method of rope termination, a good splicing does not reduce the overall length of the rope over 10%. At Sydney Rope, we offer bespoke rope splicing services that precisely cater to your needs. We understand that every rope is different and should be handled in a specific way.

Splicing creates a permanent loop at the end of the rope and has a lot of advantages. One of the most notable advantages is the durability and toughness of the loop. An equal but less observed advantage is the enormous drop in strength of a badly spliced rope compared to a perfectly spliced rope. A poor quality splice will only retain 50% of the strength of the rope or less. This is equivalent to a well tied knot. A good quality splice will retain around 85% of the strength of the rope. But a perfectly spliced rope should retain about 95% of the original strength of the rope. Therefore, we offer superior rope splicing solutions that ensure minimal loss in the strength of your rope. With us, you can be assured of maximum functionality and strength of your spliced ropes.

A stainless eye splice

Used where the point of attachment will suffer significant ware and friction over a prolonged period of time. (Fixed size eye)

Soft eye splice

The more versatile splice, soft eye splices are used more often because they allow the splice to be placed over a broad range of shapes and sizes. (Please specify the size of the eye you require in the comments section when you make purchase.
