Consulting and training

The old rope craft has today become a sustainable technology. Ropes convince through their economy and efficiency in a multitude of applications, whether in architecture, construction, industry or forestry. But not all ropes are the same: thanks to a variety of construction methods as well as modern and traditional materials, ropes can be adapted to their respective purpose. We will advise you which rope is perfectly suited to your needs.

We conduct regular training courses on the use of our products. We inform users about the proper use of our products and pass on our experience.
