Product information

Timm Master 12 SBA™ are the safest conventional mooring ropes in the world, thanks to the integrated SBA™ (Snap Back Arrestor). In November 2022, DNV awarded Timm’s Snap Back Arrestor a statement of qualified technology, following the successful completion of an extensive test program, performed in accordance with DNV’s recommended practice A203. This is the first and only anti snap back rope in the world to receive this qualification.

As a result of the construction and the rope having high tenacity polyester in the outer layer of the strands, Timm Master 12 SBA has excellent abrasion resistance. The color scheme is designed to give a visual anti-twist indicator to easily spot undesirable twists in the rope. Timm Master 12 SBA™ being floating and resistant to UV, with one of the best strength-to-weight ratios on the market, it serves as a lightweight and reliable solution, suitable for all vessel types.
