Utility Specific Products
Unirope manufactures utility specific products like handline assemblies with modified aluminum rope blocks. This product was developed and tested together with HydroOne, meets their specification and is approved by them. Modified Double Rope Assemblies were developed together with the ‘old’ Ontario Hydro Kipling yard. It was found that the OEM rope assemblies for the Asplundh LR50 did not perform as expected and we were ask to improve on the design. These assemblies are now manufactured using a high fatigue resistant Python® rope to minimize the possibility of unexpected rope failures. Furthermore, we still have an LR 50 cable assembly inspection program in place which, due to many circumstances, right now is inactive but can be revitalized at any time.
