Rope Handling & Protection

Enquire Now


Nylacast winch spooling shells, sheaves and pulleys manufactured from polymer are the ideal solution for many industry applications. The inherent resilience of the material minimises rope wear rates with the grooves requiring little or no lubrication or surface maintenance.


Developed using Nylacast materials technology with the additional option of ATEX compliance, the low weight makes for easier installation and lower inertia when running. Proven in industry for decades, Nylacast rope handling products are corrosion resistant, lightweight and low friction, this results in increased safety for personnel when operating equipment. Greater efficiency and cost saving is also achieved through these qualities extending the life of mating ropes with reduced maintenance need and replacement.
