Dynamic climbing rope
The fact that a climbing rope is dynamic means that it can stretch by about 10% of its length. Because of this elasticity, you always climb on dynamic ropes, because it gives a softer fall with the climbing rope. Dynamic climbing rope is available both with and without water-repellent waterproofing for outdoor and indoor climbing respectively.
Static climbing rope
Static rope has no elastic properties. It does not stretch, and can therefore only be used for abseiling / rappelling, where there is no danger of falling into the rope. It is also suitable for establishing smaller ziplines or other rope facilities. Static ropes should NEVER be used for climbing where there is a risk of falling. The fact that the rope is static means that all the force from the fall is NOT absorbed by the climbing rope, but that the body. Therefore the body is instead exposed to all the force associated with the fall.
Prusik cord is a strong, thin and static nylon rope. We have Prusik cord from 2 to 7 mm. Prusik cord is typically used when abseiling, where the prusik cord is tied around the climbimg rope and serves as a safety for the abseiler. As a rule of thumb, you should choose a prusik cord with a diameter that is half the size of your climbing rope. 5 to 7 mm prusical cord is the most common.
