Chafe-Pro by Fjord, Inc., a North Carolina specialty manufacturer of removable chafe-abrasion protection, announced the availability of a custom designed product for Samson Rope. Providing protection for high-performance mooring lines, the Chafe-Pro FS employs the same Chafe-Pro material, but is custom designed specifically for Samson to have a free-sliding fit.
Durable and easily installed before the lines are deployed or after, the Chafe-Pro FS is built to last, the manufacturer said, adding that multiple layers of specially-formulated, heavy-duty nylon and durable thread provide maximum flexibility. It is easily positioned wherever lines pass through chocks or across fairleads anywhere the lines may be subject to abrasion. A simple hook-and-loop closure allows the Chafe-Pro FS sleeve to be quickly installed or repositioned where needed. There are attachment points at both ends for tag lines to keep the sleeve in position.
“We’ve long regarded Sampson Rope as a premier cordage supplier to the commercial and pleasure marine markets and are thrilled to finally provide a custom piece for their customers,” commented Michael Ratigan, President of Chafe-Pro. “We’ve worked together on many outside projects, most recently the harness design for the NASA Orion recovery, so it just seemed a natural progression to provide a product direct moving forward.”
