KARAT® MAXI has become standard terminology in high quality mooring applications
Special characteristics are:
Diamond Braid International Marine supplies a wide range of KARAT® MAXI mooring tails, both single leg and endless grommet,
to suit all dimensions/grades of steel wire mooring ropes.
- Highest strength of the conventional mooring ropes
- No loss of strength when wet
- Low weight - easy handling
- Low elongation
- Very low snap-back effect
Mooring tails are typically supplied in lengths of 11 m with 1,8 m and 0,6 m covered eyes. Because synthetic ropes are likely to
deteriorate more rapidly than wire ropes, tails should be at least 25% stronger than the steel wire ropes to which they are attached
(NOTE: +37% for Nylon). The mooring tails should be inspected frequently and replaced at regular intervals.
