Beal DryCover

Every filament in the sheath of Beal DryCover ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature to prolong the life of the dry treatment, thus adding to the durability of the rope. On a Beal DryCover rope, the core is not treated.

Key features:
  • Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
  • Limited water absorption
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

Beal GoldenDry

Every filament of the sheath and the core of GoldenDry ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature. The durability of this treatment is given by the polymerisation, but also because of the individual treatment of each filament before the rope is made. A GoldenDry rope is a rope with the core Dry treated, and a sheath of Dry Cover.

Key features:
  • Very limited weight gain in wet conditions
  • Prevents the rope thickening too much
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

Unicore

The UNICORE process bonds the sheath of the rope to the core. This prevents sheath slippage, but also helps to keep the structural integrity of the rope if it is cut or damaged.

Key features:
  • Sheath slippage is eliminated
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut
  • Rope cutting is easy: no hot knife required
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%
