The Connection for
customized hardware.

Nowadays we see many large yachts having a bag of 3D 360° loops as a standard part of their deck gear. The 3D 360° loop makes connections safer and reduces damage to the yacht.

Many hardware manufacturers create hardware specially designed for the use of the 3D 360° loop. In particular for connections that require the smallest possible diameter and a different connection angle.

Compact, Light, but immensely powerful.

The loop is extremely light and can handle loads up to 3000 tons. We were able to achieve this because of the special splice technique that we use for fabrication for the 3D 360° loop. This technique uses multiple strands for Dyneema® that evenly divides the tensile force over the fibers. This system is tensioned to its maximum workload while it is being hardened.

The annealing process allows an altering of the microstructure of the fiber while efficiently aligning the molecular chain. With this technology we are able to reach higher workloads with a smaller loop size and diameter.

With the Equiplite® custom covering system we are able to compress the multiple fibers into a solid loop. As soon as the cover begin to show signs of wear, abrasion or when it starts to fade it's time to replace the 3D 360° loop.

A Solid Solution With Improved Identification

Safety is our main concern. Therefore, the loop can be extra equipped with a certificate issued by a OSO9001-VCA-EKH certified company, a certified loop has a Chip(MMS), label with the certificate number, date and maximum workload.

We have found a way to improve on what is widely known as a solid basis 3D 360° Loops have been certified officially on MWL for as long as they are used. Yet identifying a product and determining its strength has been a difficult concern, demanding knowledge and administration of its user as wel as intricate manuals on yachts

How do I identify my Equiplite product?

How does it work, Your Equiplite product has an NFC chip injected in her synthetic and hardware. Use the Mobile devices to read the data of your Equiplite product to the cloud — to the LYnkMe™ app.

+ To read the NFC-Chip follow the following steps.

+ Please find the Read out positions.

+ Please find the Functionalities.

What is the protective cover made of?

The protective cover is made of Dyneema® use of the black in Black Dyneema® is integral to the fiber. It's not only on the surface, but runs all the ways through. The cover extends the life length and ensures the consistent quality and aesthetics of the Equiplite® loop.
