High performance rope with a twisted firing cable

Designed to eliminate the need to walk forward to a device dragging both a rigging line and a firing cable, Phoenix Flex is a new idea that combines the performance of a high specification low stretch rope with a twisted-pair firing cable.

The unique line can be used with any classic hook and line rigging equipment or disruptor and electronic initiator.

In uses its operation is identical to normal hook &line rope but offers ultra low stretch characteristics, and the rope ends can be stripped to reveal the integrated firing cable for connection to a disruptor or other explosive charges.

It is very easy for the rope to be re-used if the end is damaged - with the use of a ‘fid’ the line end loop can be easily remade and extra branch lines added.

The firing cable has the same characteristics as traditional "black and tan" detonator cable but is 50% lighter.
