Sterling have been making the highest quality, most innovative static and dynamic rope and cord for decades. They were the first to offer a 48-carrier static sheath construction for greater durability and better handling. They came out with the first 100% Polyester static rope called the HTP, and were the first to offer 100% Technora heat and abrasion resistant ropes to the fire industry; helping FDNY create the first escape kit. Even their accessory cords were constructed differently; utilizing their innovative sewn tacks and eyes. Sterlings ropes and cords are seen on the most technical rescues, in the tallest trees, on remote missions as well as hazardous job sites and are there to get people home safely, day after day.
