Splicing is understood to mean the break-resistant and permanent connection of rope and wire constructions by interlacing individual string. The durability of a splice is due to friction as well as to the phenomenon of self-locking and is usually above the strength of the original rope.

Splicing and rigging is a traditional craft that has been practiced for centuries. Nowadays this handcraft is more up-to-date and more important than ever, since modern and highly resilient ropes can only reach the extremely high breaking loads because of a splice.

Despite industrial progress and the further development of plastic fibers, splicing is still pure manual work.

To date, no machine has been developed that could replace human understanding and sensitivity to splicing. Only the tried and tested tool as well as the power of a winch can be used as an aid.

Let yourself be convinced by this art, proven for centuries.
