LIROS 20mm Anchorplait Nylon Spliced to 12mm ISO4656 Grade 40 Calibrated Anchor Chain, prepared in house by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.
Consult the information and size chart in our ANCHORING SYSTEM ASSESSMENT to establish the most suitable specification and length for your motor or sailing yacht, considering the application - Bower, Second or Kedge anchor - your intended cruising plans - and your reliance on anchoring.
The Bitter End
Consider how you are going to attach the warp on deck or in your chain locker.
This will depend on whether the strongpoint e.g. cleat, U bolt, eye plate will be used to take the full strain of the rode or only to prevent accidental loss overboard:
Anchorplait White Nylon Article 01058JG is manufactured EXCLUSIVELY by LIROS Ropes with Easy Splice Markers for Jimmy Green Marine
Anchorplait is the rope that won't cockle
LIROS specify their manufacturer minimum break loads in Deka newtons = DaN
DaN = Deka newtons
1 Deka newton DaN actually = 1.01971621297793 (approximately 1.02) kg
01058 / 01058JG - 1000 = 2600 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1200 = 3400 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1400 = 4500 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1600 = 5900 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1800 = 7200 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 2000 = 8200 daN
01058 - 2400 = 11800daN
LIROS Break Load converted to Kg from DaN at 1:1.02 =
10mm 2652kg ~ 12mm 3468kg ~ 14mm 4590kg ~ 16mm ~ 6018kg ~ 18mm 7344kg - 20mm 8364kg ~ 24mm 12036kg
The rope to chain splice is required to complete your anchor rode
