Composite Cables: about the construction Part #1

Armare has opened his doors and today we begin a travel inside the Composite Cables world by Armare.

The processing of continuous multifilament high modulus fibres, is currently the most technologically advanced construction in the world for the production of fiber cables.  Armare has developed a complete line of products to be used on racing/cruising boats and maxi yachts.

The construction process of the Softrig cables is called “Sling”. This process is based on continuous winding of fiber between two fixed points placed at the desired distance. The result is an extremely safe single cable, with inimitable mechanical characteristics. This special construction, accurately controlled with sophisticated equipment, produces the highest modulus of stretching and the maximum lightness. It allows the cables to get exceptional Breaking Loads both under static and dynamic loads, and facing unforeseen peaks of stress.

The continuous development of construction techniques allows Armare to build perfectly balanced cables, extremely safe and with an excellent durability. Intensive tests and exhausting sailing session, such as the participation to Vendee Globe, confirm the absolute reliability of our products, both in cruising, racing and sailing boats of different sizes.
