Sale price Price $19.99 Regular price Unit price  per 


Our Glo Snakeskin nylon ropes offer a polypropylene core surrounded by a 50/50 sheath of our glow in the dark nylon fibre and polyester colours of various colours. They are not only a good choice for rescue and descending, but can improve an array of sports and recreational experiences at night. Exclusive to this particular water rescue rope, it is buoyant and refrains from absorbing water. Safety is about creating systems where given the chance that one fails, there is another in place to avert an accident. This is why our rope was designed and tested under the harshest conditions giving you the best line of defence against a dark and unpredictable situation.

Key Features

GLO ropes provide high strength with low stretch and good abrasion resistance. Our advanced photo-luminescent glow in the dark pigment is added at extreme precision when the nylon and polypropylene components are still in a liquid state. Adding pigments before its extrusion into fibre means that GLO rope will carry its industrial strength glowing properties as long as the fibre lasts.

Weight: 2.94lbs / 100 ft


Our Polypropylene glow in the dark rope is U.L. and N.F.P.A. approved and meets all requirements of the US Military specification MIL-R-24050-D.  With a suitable charge from any sufficient light source, GLO rope will glow vividly in dark conditions for 8-10 hours. The rope is never dipped or painted, which avoids all potential compromises to the equipment. With highly reflective filaments woven into the polyester sheath, you are guaranteed to have a highly reflective product in times where a sufficient charge is not possible.
