Ropes are commonly built in one of two ways. They are either twisted or braided. Twisting is the oldest and simplest way to make rope. It also is the way individual filaments are gathered together into fibers, which then become strands of a rope. Twisted ropes are easy to manufacture, relatively inexpensive, and disposable. Because they are inexpensive, twisted ropes are often used in settings where strength, durability and reliability aren’t factors. Twine on a bale of hay is a good example of a twisted rope at work. It is used once and then thrown away.
Braided ropes, on the other hand, are the workhorses of the rope world. By braiding fibers together into strands and strands into rope, it is possible to overcome the shortcomings of twisting. The process also adds incredible strength to the product. A well-made braided rope features fibers that are aligned in a single direction and overlap in a way that behaves like a Chinese finger-lock. The result? The more pull exerted on the rope, the more the braiding locks each fiber into place. This creates strength, durability and reliability.
