Rope Assemblies returns to ABTT to launch new Anchor Strop

UK – Rope Assemblies Ltd is set to debut its brand new Anchor Strop on stand A22 at this year's ABTT Theatre show. The Anchor strop is a 6mm stainless steel wire rope with thimble eyes on both ends, copper ferrules, and has been designed for general PPE requirements. It has an EN362 hook on either end and joins the company's existing range of Anchor Strops and is perfect for use in a wide range of industries, wherever a person works at height, near unprotected edges or in confined spaces.

The Anchor Strop will be joined on the stand by Rope Assemblies' lighting and climbing ladders. Ann McCorkell, technical manager explained: "The Lighting Ladder was created in conjunction with one of our customers who needed a solution for hanging lights vertically without the space consuming aluminium ladders."

Consisting of two lengths of wire rope with spacing of end stops, karabiners at the end and removable rungs for easy transportation and storage, the Lighting Ladder can be manufactured to whatever length the customer requires and this can be increased by purchasing additional length. What's more, several ladders can be joined together width-ways to create a lighting 'curtain'. Rungs are available in widths of 500mm and 1m and spare rungs are available.

Rope Assemblies' climbing ladders are also manufactured on-site at the company's Retford factory and are fully compliant with the US Standard ANS1-E1-1 as there is no EN Standard for wire rope ladders. All ladders are manufactured with knurled rungs, karabiner end fittings and EN795 anchor straps. They are made to order by length and come in widths of 130mm or 250mm. All ladders are certified and come with full use instructions.

Linda Martin, managing director of Rope Assemblies commented: "We're really excited to be back at ABTT this year after somewhat of a hiatus. A lot has changed since we were last at the show in 2016. We've developed our product range and, since becoming part of the Unusual group of companies in 2017, we have made lots of internal changes that have improved our business processes."

She continued: "We understand that during any period of change, customers can become concerned about what this could potentially mean for them. But we can guarantee that the changes we have implemented to date have only had a positive effect on the way we operate and our customers are already benefiting from the way the company is moving forward. We look forward to welcoming lots of familiar faces and potential new customers to our stand so that we can show off our fantastic products share our plans for the future."
