Kernmantle Rope

The term "Kernmantle" is derived from the German words kern (core) and mantle (cover). Any rope construction featuring a core and cover could be called kernmantle. Common life safety or fall arrest ropes feature a twisted parallel strand core surrounded by a braided cover. For dynamic ropes this stranded core is designed to maximize energy absorption. These ropes should be retired after a fall because the energy absorbing rope elongation is non-recoverable. Because of the parallel core these ropes cannot be terminated with spliced eyes.
