Sterling Expands Popular Workpro Static Rope Series



Snowboarding News | Thursday August 31, 2017 | Shared By: Outdoor Industry Association

By popular demand, Sterling is offering the WorkPro in 3/8”, 7/16” and ½” diameters for arbor, industrial safety, climbing, and fire and rescue applications.

Biddeford, ME – Sterling Rope Company, Inc. developed an entirely new approach to rope construction using mixed materials. With a polyester sheath and nylon core, the WorkPro offers a balanced elongation in the core and sheath so they share the load evenly. This makes the WorkPro series stronger than other ropes of similar diameters while retaining a small but important amount of elongation.

These kernmantle ropes are dual certified to EN 1891 Type A and NFPA 1983 (Technical for 3/8” and 7/16”, General for ½”). They also meet ANSI Z133 Standards.

“I’ve used the 7/16” WorkPro extensively this past year and I’m happy to see Sterling is coming out with a ½” diameter that has the same performance and handling characteristics” says Ed Carpenter, Owner and Lead Instructor for North American Training Solutions. “As an arborist, the larger diameter is easier on my hands when I climb and is more compatible with the gear I use.”

The WorkPro series of static ropes are available in 3/8”, 7/16” and ½” diameters. Each model comes in multiple colors and lengths. For more information or to purchase, please visit your local authorized Sterling Retailer or go to
