Product information

Timm Master 12 SBA are the safest mooring tails 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.

Timm Master 12 SBA™ Tails are made from a combination of high tenacity polyester and B5 polyolefin yarns, and effectively absorbs shock/energy in mooring systems. The eyes are protected by mesh braid that is spliced into the eye, providing a superior protection that is designed for high durability. Timm Master 12 SBA™ Tails are floating and have excellent UV resistance.
