A Note from our Owner

Yale Cordage has never lost a customer to a competitor based on quality nor have we sought customers on the basis of price alone. We have always embraced new arborist rope fiber technologies and have been the first manufacturer to incorporate them in arborist rope and cable products when they provide the best customer value.

Yale has continuously developed unique custom and modified machinery to maintain its advantage in processing fibers to their fullest potential. We do this every day to the very best of our abilities in Maine and North Carolina…..nowhere else.

Yale is proud of its support of the Arborist Trade, from its introduction of high tech synthetic fibers for heat resistance, to setting up a working arborist rope-making machine at TCI. We want to make your job easier and safer.

12-strand single braid, high performance polyester

PE-12 has been re-engineered, boosting its strengths significantly. Using the same high-tenacity fiber we use in our value-packed Portland Braid, this polyester single braid offers a single-end-per-carrier construction, which keeps the rope from flattening out in service and self centers in sheaves beautifully.

12-strand 2-ply single braid, enhanced polyester yarn coating
