Amended SOLAS regulation for safe mooring
Suddenly recoiled mooring lines – snap back incidents – can cause life-threating accidents and severe injuries. Aside from sufficient training, maintenance and safety routines, the proper mooring line selection is an essential prerequisite for avoiding such events and maximizing the crew’s physical integrity.
BLACK ROPE’s Anti Snap Back (ASB) ropes offer maximum safety assurance. ASB is an energy absorbing core, which sits within our mooring ropes (twelve-strand, plaited, mixed, polypropylene or HMPE).
Owing to its rope-like form, held within the heart of a twelve-strand mooring line, if the outer, load-bearing construction breaks, the ASB absorbs the snap-back forces, transforming them from a potentially deadly snap to a much safer slump.
