DC Gard is a tightly braided cover construction of HMPE fiber that is spliced onto the strength member to protect it from wear and abrasion in specific areas. Designed for use in applications like tug operations, where frequent handling and use put a premium on rope protection and resistance to snagging. For vessels where frequent mooring operations are the norm, DC Gard provides maximum protection for working ropes.
If operating in regions where extreme heat is an issue, contact Customer Service for information about Samson’s TC GardTM.
