Marlow Ropes designed and developed the original Fast Ropes in conjunction with the British Special Forces. These ropes are now in use by traditional regiments, special forces and SWAT teams in four corners of the globe. A Marlow Fast Rope can always be identified by Marlow ‘Black Marker’ trademark.
The unique construction of the Marlow Fast Rope allows comfortable control throughout the descent and makes it easier to slow down and break. The suppleness of the material means that the rope is not hard on the hands as less force is required than with other ropes. Oil and general spillage do not affect the speed of descent as Marlow Fast Ropes absorb liquids.
