Founded in 1936 by Harry Terry, Braids & Laces has evolved through three more generations of innovation and progress. Originally a supplier of shoelaces, the company first expanded during World War II to add cord manufacturing to its repertoire, supplying braided cord as handles for ammunitions boxes. The next step in its development was to expand the laces product line into sports equipment (skates), and the ropes product line into marine uses. Each successive generation has been successful in expanding the business of manufacturing rope, cord and laces, while still maintaining a high standard of service to their customers.
Whether you need mooring lines for boating uses or stronger-than-steel rope for winching, shock cord for camping equipment or tightly braided polypropylene for caulking and gasket applications, or any other type of custom rope we haven't even been asked to produce yet, we are your supplier. We love to surpass our customers' expectation for service and exceptional value.
Our best recommendation for marine cordage is our double braid polyester (BPE), which boasts the highest UV resistance. As compared to nylon, it both shrinks and stretches less, making it ideal for rigging as well as industrial use. It resists rot and mildew, and does not deteriorate when exposed to oils, solvents, acids and most chemicals.
Our Crown King Arbor Rope is designed with climbing in mind. It is low stretch and spliceable, with excellent knot holding capability. It has a "broken-in" feeling, but is long-lasting. We stock it in green with white, but it is available in a wide variety of colors (with a minimum order).
If you require an exceptionally strong but light rope, we recommend our 12-stranded UHMWPE braid. It is available in diameters from 3/16" to 3/8", and features a breaking strength ranging from 5,200 lbs up to 12,500 lbs - stronger than steel. The coated version has even greater abrasion resistance - perfect for winch and pulling lines.
Our double braid construction ropes are available in polyester, nylon and polypropylene versions. The braid over braid pattern creates a strong rope that is supple at the same time. Available diameters range from 3/16" to 1-1/2", depending on your choice of fiber.
