Products and services

Texteel® – the new force

Full HMPE power, minimal costs, certified Gleistein quality

Texteel® combines the handling attributes and light weight of textile fibers with the strength and elongation characteristics of steel – at outstanding value for money. Gleistein thereby bridges the gap between cost-effective conventional ropes and high-end products for extreme demands with minimal weight. With Texteel®, an alternative HMPE fibre type that has been rigorously tested to fulfil the strict Gleistein quality standards is now available for the very first time. Combined with carefully optimised, tried and tested construction types, it delivers high-performance ropes for maximum user benefit and long service life at an extremely attractive price. With the TexteelOne® and TexteelTwin® series, Gleistein offers a complete range right from its market launch.


Less is more: Full Texteel® power in a buoyant high-performance rope boasting the equivalent strength of a steel rope at an extremely affordable price.


200% Texteel®: Strength-optimised core protected by highly abrasion-resistant sub-braids made of the same material – the flagship of the Texteel® fleet!
