Rope & Wire

Rope & wire

At Comet Trawl, we have been supplying ropes and wire ropes since 1963 for all kinds of purposes, including fishing, offshore, agriculture, sports and many more. We can supply both ordinary ropes and wire as well as taifun, steel wire and Dynema. From our twine binderies in Esbjerg and Thyborøn, we deliver to all of Denmark, the Nordic region and Europe.

String, rope and cord

When choosing string, rope or cordage, the variants and materials are as numerous as the number of purposes it will be used for. We supply all types of nets and ropes and are well-versed in working with different materials and techniques.


There are several aspects to consider when choosing the right cord, rope or cordage, but first and foremost, you need to know what it will be used for.


We work in the materials: nylon, polyester, sisal and dynema, and can supply cord, rope and cordage that is 3-strand, 4-strand, braided, cross-braided, round-braided and quarter-braided for a wide range of applications. The different rope types each have their own characteristics and preferred applications:

Nylon and Polyester

Nylon rope is comfortable and easy to handle even at low temperatures. Nylon is water absorbent and the rope can be stowed away when wet. Nylon is resistant to most chemicals but can be attacked by strong acids. Nylon does not rot. Nylon has a very high tensile strength and elasticity. Polyester has the same properties as nylon but is more stable.


Polyethylene rope floats on water, does not absorb water and is not attacked by rot and chemicals. Polyester rope is easy to handle even at low temperatures. It has a shiny and smooth surface.


Sisal is suitable for tying ropes. The rope has little elasticity, is supple and knot-resistant. Sisal is water absorbent and must be dry before packing away.


A stronger rope without significant stretch and a great alternative to steel wire rope when jobs require manual handling of the rope. Dynema is stronger than normal steel wire rope and weighs 7 times less. It is particularly suitable for towing hawsers and


Taifun is a wire rope product that is covered with polypropylene split film, polyester or nylon. Taifun is constructed in the same way as a regular steel wire rope, but weighs less and is easier to work with. Taifun is a softer version of a wire rope and is used, among other things, for pulling trawls on the seabed.

Which type to choose?

The material and choice of rope type depends largely on what you will be using your rope for.

3-Strike & 4-Strike

Depending on the choice of material, 3-strand rope and cordage is suitable for mooring, lashing, unloading gear, agricultural rope, rescue rope, rescue line, hauling rope, towline, anchor rope, lifeline, landing net and general use.


4-strand rope is used for ship use, but also for climbing ropes and the like.

Braided and Cross Braided

Braided and cross-braided ropes can be used for loglines, tarpaulins, bottom wear, guy ropes, blinds, curtains, lacing, flaglines, drawstrings and other maritime applications.

Square braided

Square braided ropes are constructed from 4 right- and 4 left-twisted strands and are mainly used for mooring ropes and straps.

Round braided

Round braided nylon rope is used for drawstrings in catch bags. It is also effective for hoisting systems that require manual hoisting by hand because it doesn't wear out the palms of your hands.
