HIGH-PERFORMANCE CHAFE GEAR
​DC GARD
PRODUCT CODE: 706

DC Gard is a tightly braided cover construction of Dyneema® 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 Gard made with Technora®.

DC MOOR-GARD S
PRODUCT CODE: 705

DC Moor-Gard S is a braided tubular sleeve made of 100% Dyneema fiber that offers excellent chafe protection for high performance ropes. The reverse twisted construction aligns the internal fibers with the axis of the rope to reduce friction between the rope and the chafe guard. The addition of Samson’s proprietary coating enhances the abrasion resistance and further helps reduce internal and external fiber damage accumulated by the core rope. This has been proven to lead to lower operating temperatures and extended service life.
 
The urethane coating has been removed from the ends, and DC Moor-Gard S is now finished off with a durable back-splice. This provides ease of handling for positioning the sleeve onto the line at known wear zones.
 
Standard length is 10 feet (3 meters), custom lengths are available.
 
FEATURES:
  • Fixed or adjustable for easy positioning
  • Lightweight
  • Flexible
  • ​Floats
  • Pull straps standard; also available without straps
  • Easily removable for rope inspection

PC GARD
PRODUCT CODE: 432

PC Gard is a tightly braided cover construction of polyester spliced onto the strength member to protect it from wear and abrasion in specific areas.  It has been designed for use in applications where frequent handling and use put a premium on rope protection and resistance to snagging.

DYNALENE 
PRODUCT CODE: 975

Dynalene, made of 100% Dyneema® fiber, is a unique product that protects the strength member from abrasion, yet allows the rope to be easily inspected for both internal and external fiber wear. Dynalene is permanently spliced over the rope and acts as a sacrificial cover. It is fully repairable in the field, does not absorb water, and floats.

FEATURES: 

  • Lightweight
  • Floats
  • Easy inspection without removal
  • Excellent durability

 

TC GARD
PRODUCT CODE: 707

TC Gard is a tightly braided cover construction of Technora®  fiber that is spliced onto the strength member to protect it from wear and abrasion in specific areas. Designed for use in regions where extreme heat is an issue, 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, TC Gard provides maximum protection for working ropes. 

 

TECHNOLENE
PRODUCT CODE: 976

The construction of Technolene is similar to Dynalene, but the fiber composition is Technora®, an aramid fiber with very high heat resistance. Technolene should be specified where synthetic ropes are subject to both abrasion and high temperatures from reflected heat sources or friction.

FEATURES:976_ChafeGear_Technolene_Eye_cropped.jpg

  • Excellent heat resistance for high heat applications/environments
  • Easy inspection without removal
  • Excellent durability and cut resistance
