JHRG Releases New Chafe-Protective Devices

Friday, June 21, 2002
JHRG has released a new weapon in the battle to protect commercial marine rope from chafe. Featured in Sail Magazine (May 2002), JHRG patent-applied-for chafe-protective devices are made from Supreme Protector fabric and thread. After three months of harbor tug trials, a veteran Captain said, “This is the best piece of chafe gear I’ve seen in 30 years in the business.” Made with 80 lb. Test SPT 138 thread and 1,000lb./inch fabric, both pre-curved and straight tubes protect eyes, ropes, hoses and lines in a broad range of amarine applications from military and pleasure craft to oceangoing tugboats and cruise ships. Supreme Protector materials resist cuts, moisture, abrasion, UV and common shipboard contaminants. The same materials are employed in awnings, FAA-certified air cargo restraints, airline luggage cart curtains and U.S. Coast Guard/ U.S. Navy boat and gun covers. They are favored for long service life, durability and light weight. After a year of field trials JHRG’s recreational anti-chafe devices (and the ropes they cover, show no visible degradation. Commercial requirements for better chafe protection have been stimulated by a rapid shift from steel rope to costly, lightweight HMW-PE rope.
