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
PRODUCT CODE: 705

DC Moor-Gard has been redesigned and optimized for lower operating temperatures and longer life for your mooring lines. This new patent-pending design is modeled after Samson's robust Turbo series of covers for jacketed ropes and is made of 100% Dyneema® fiber. It features Samson's proprietary Saturn coating for enhanced abrasion resistance and reduced friction between the rope and chafe guard.
 
When installing over a splice contact customer service to determine the appropriate size of DC Moor-Gard.
 
FEATURES:
  • Fixed or adjustable for easy positioning
  • Light and flexible
  • Floats
  • Easily removed 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. 

If operating in regions where extreme heat is an issue, see TC Gard.
 
  
 

DYNALENE 
PRODUCT CODE: 975

Dynalene, make 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

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
