Samson was awarded a patent titled "Line Structure for Marine Use in Contaminated Environments," the company announced.
The rope maker developed the technology while partnering with Delmar Systems on its patented Omni-Max gravity-installed anchor system.
“The design provides protection to the strength members and the ability to easily inspect the rope, which is different from other ‘filtered’ ropes,” the company said in a statement. “Congratulations to Samson’s Justin Gilmore for the creativity and ingenuity to design and engineer this state-of-the-art construction.”
This is Samson’s 11th patent in eight years.
