Rope - Three Strand

Rope - Three Strand

Traditionally, a three strand laid rope is called a plain- or hawser-laid. Twisted ropes are built up in three steps. First, fibres are gathered and spun into yarns. A number of these yarns are then formed into strands by twisting. The strands are then twisted together to lay the rope. The twist of the yarn is opposite to that of the strand, and that in turn is opposite to that of the rope. It is this counter-twist, introduced with each successive operation, which holds the final rope together as a stable, unified object.

Three strand ropes are used for making nets, rope ladders, elements and for making fall arrest lanyards.
