SEMI-STATIC ROPES VERSUS STATIC ROPES
Joaquim CASTAÑO (KORDA'S)
Joaquim CASTAÑO, Technical Manager of the rope manufacturer KORDA'S, inventor of multiple special and exclusive characteristics that he applies to his products, specialist in resistance of materials, especially textiles.
Joaquim knows perfectly how all kinds of ropes are made, the materials that can be used depending on the use and their resistance. The objective of the MasterClass is that we clearly differentiate the virtues, materials of manufacture, resistance and characteristics of the semi-static and static ropes. It will also inform us why European manufacturers cannot offer static rope references for sports use within the European Economic Community. We will ask you why Europe chose the benefits of the semi-static rope against the static rope and of course, we will ask you if the regulations in Europe on ropes can change in the not too distant future.
