SYNTHETIC HELICOPTER LONGLINES

Synthetic Longlines

Some people believe that a synthetic helicopter longline is just a rope. We don’t. We believe that the right materials and workmanship give a safer, longer-lasting, and easier to use line that gives reliability when you need it most.

EMERGCO Synthetic Fibre Helicopter Longlines utilize Plasma® 12 strand fibre manufactured from Honeywell’s HMPE fibre for an ultra-high strength, lightweight helicopter underslung cargo long line. HMPE is widely used to replace wire-rope where extremely low-stretch and high strengths are required. Its resistance to abrasion and chemicals is unsurpassed by any other synthetic fibre.

EMERGCO Synthetic Helicopter Longlines will give the user many years of service and are lightweight, flexible, serviceable, and easy to handle. Our lines ensure that our customers get the most useful load for the longest line life – with margin to spare.

  • PREMIUM QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

    All synthetic longlines are not created equal. Ours are designed and built with safety and lifetime value as priorities.

  • CHOICE OF ELECTRICAL

    We can build lines with a wide variety of electrical conductor options to suit your requirements, and we size our protective covers to ensure a snug fit with the wire you choose for a line that flies better.
