Product information

Mooring tail made from the Timm Master material that combines HT polyester and B5 polyolefin yarns and effectively absorbs shock/energy in mooring systems. Typically used with steel wire and HMPE ropes. It performs better in wet conditions than nylon, providing equal breaking strength under wet and dry conditions. This tail includes Timm's unique Snap Back Arrestor (SBA) in the core that reduces the snap back in case of breakage. Both eyes of this tail are protected by mesh braid that is spliced into the eye and performs much better than usual protective sleeves. Smart Pick up line is installed in the outer eye of the stretcher that will be used over the bollard on the port/terminal side. This 4m long Pick up line is both a tool for easier handling and a safety feature. This should be used to lift the eye of the stretcher on the bollard and release it from the bollard. Pick up line will prevent the accident of the hand getting stuck between the eye and the bollard in case of unexpected movements. The white and blue colours of the product will easy indicate if there is twist in the rope. Twist on ropes will decrease the strength of the tail and should be avoided. These tails fit perfectly to our Acera Amundsen and Acera daGama HMPE portfolio.

The stretcher breaking strength is given by Tail Design Break Force TDBF as per OCIMF MEG4, equal to value of MBL spliced.
