Recreational & Marine

For well over one hundred years, Samson has been recognised as the leader in developing and manufacturing braided ropes.

Samson engineers use nylon, polyester and polypropylene fibres together with newer developments in fibre technology like Kevlar®, HMWPE (high molecular weight polyethylene, such as Spectra® and Dyneema®) and Technora® to produce ropes with characteristics specifically designed to enhance performance. Samson engineers continue to explore new fibre and rope construction technologies to meet the demands of the marine industry and recreational boaters alike.

Utilizing the new high strength nylon, polyester and polypropylene fibres in this patented construction allowed Samson to manufacture ropes that were far stronger and durable than the 3-strand twisted ropes, which had been the standards since biblical times.
