Inland River Lines

Replace “wing” and “face” wire ropes with Plasma® synthetic ropes. Wing wires and face wires are the manner in which river pushboats attach themselves to and maneuver the barges they’re pushing up or down the river systems in the US. Wing and face wires tend to be anywhere from ½” to 1 ½” in diameter depending on the horsepower of the pushboat. The benefits of Plasma® ropes over wire rope wing and face lines are:

  • Strong as wire rope size for size
  • 1/7 th weight of wire rope
  • Floats
  • Reduced making up and knocking down times
  • Less crew members required to handle lines
  • Safer – less worker related injuries and claims
  • No maintenance or re-lubing
  • Easy splicing – DVD instructions available free of charge
  • With proper care – longer wear life than wire rope
