As soon as you find a new EDELRID rope in your hands, all you want to do is start climbing right away. The formation of folds and kinks during unrolling could however spoil the joy of the new purchase soon.
From now on, however, this possibility, for all EDELRID strings, belongs only to the past! The new EDELRID 3D Lap Coil technology makes the unwinding operation unnecessary. In fact, we have introduced the new Lap Coiling machine into our production system, which wraps our ropes in a special way. Thanks also to a pack with a well-designed design, starting to climb with the new rope immediately is child's play, since doing it is really easy. The markings on the rope and the detailed description on the package make the operation even simpler: you can therefore start using the rope immediately without annoying twists and twists.
Thermo Shield is the standard treatment to which all ropes are subjected to ensure the unparalleled handling of the EDELRID ropes. This treatment consists of a termico process through which the threads that make up the core and the braiding of the rope are perfectly harmonized with each other. Thanks to a special termico treatment, the fibers loosen inside the rope and dilate. In this way, the sliding characteristics inside the rope are standardized, which thus becomes more manageable and compact. The result is ropes that do not shrink or stiffen quickly.
"Our ropes are clean", for the sake of the environment
Quality and safety are the basic principles that push us from our first steps. For the production of innovative and ecological high-performance ropes we therefore remain faithful to the belief of sustainability. It is only thanks to this principle that today we are able to set new standards in the sustainable production of ropes.
Xxx_162_ was the first manufacturer of ropes in the world capable of adapting its products to the rigorous bluesign® system, that is, to the most stringent ecological standard in the world as regards the production of textile materials. It is an independent standard, recognized internationally and based on five principles: resource productivity, atmospheric emissions, occupational safety, water protection and consumer safety.
All the raw materials we use for the production of our ropes are qualified as «bluesign® approved». In harmony with the optimized production that takes place here at the Isny site, our strings obtain the "bluesign® product" brand, a label which therefore represents their quality brand and guarantees that the product has a low content of pollutants, does not harm health and is manufactured with environmentally friendly procedures. In this way we can fulfill the natural desire of our customers to have a product that is both safe and sustainable.
And we too have learned a lot during this process: after eight years of collaboration with Bluesign Technologies AG in Switzerland, we can draw on a rich wealth of experience in the field of sustainable production of ropes. By adapting our entire line of ropes to the rigorous requirements of the bluesign® system, it was possible to achieve the following savings objectives in the coloring phase of the sock threads:
For EDELRID this represents a further step forward towards an increasingly sustainable future: for years, in fact, we have been pursuing the path of sustainability and we wish to continue consistently in this direction also in the years to come. We do not do it to give us a virtuous air, but to provide a logical answer to the needs of changing times.
In order to say, in good conscience, that "our strings are clean".
