“ Inspiring innovation means applying new ideas to make a positive impact. This was a key consideration when nominating Marlow Ropes Blue Ocean Statics for the London Working at Height Innovation Award 2023.In today’s changing environment, materials and resources are scarce, the one thing about Marlow Ropes Blue Ocean Statics is the adaption of resources to make a positive change.” – Judges

UK Sales Manager for the Industrial Safety and Access market, Andrew Hearn comments:

“As long standing IRATA members, Marlow have attended the LWAHS seminar since 2019 to demonstrate the latest developments in our specialist working at height rope range.We are grateful to the LWAHS for recognising the Blue Ocean Static which is a testament to our commitment to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact and reliance on fossil fuels by manufacturing with recycled and bio-based materials.”

The Blue Ocean static rope is made from 100% GRS certified rPET yarn which is manufactured from recycled waste plastic. It offers the same exceptional performance expected from our standard Static products, yet with the added benefit of being made from 100% recycled and recyclable waste material. The use of recycled materials significantly reduces Marlow’s reliance on virgin polyester and fossil fuel derived materials which reduces our environmental impact.
