CARRIER ROPE PRODUCTS

KENBRAID

Kenbraid Premier carrier ropes have been designed to specifically meet the rigorous demands of today's paper and board makers. We offer a full range of designs, diameters and colours to meet the demands of even the most challenging machine conditions. Our ropes minimise threading-related downtime through outstanding performance, delivering excellent tail handling, abrasion resistance and durability. Quality assured throughout the manufacturing process (a process that is unique to William Kenyon) our ropes are supported by a technical service team whose knowledge and experience of rope threading cannot be matched by any other supplier. Our ropes have made William Kenyon the market leader worldwide.

KENBRAID PREMIER

Kenbraid Premier is a high temperature, quality impregnated filament nylon rope. Applied to each thread by the Kenyon developed method, the improved impregnation gives greater protection to the fibres of the rope and an excellent surface for gripping the paper tail. The unique hollow braided construction resists flattening under normal operating tension, further enhancing its threading efficiency and ease of splicing. If extra resistance to elongation is required, an option is available in filament polyester, specifically designed for wet conditions.
