2019 / PROUDLY PRESENTED BY:

Samson is at the forefront of the synthetic rope industry, utilizing the latest innovative fibers and proprietary constructions and coatings to design the perfect rope for your unique application.

For arborists, ropes aren’t just tools of the trade. They’re lifelines. They have to endure dynamic loads, abrasion, and passing through hardware, while keeping arborists safe. Which is why Samson's line of climbing and rigging ropes is specifically designed and engineered to meet the rigors of the tree work industry. 

 

Samson highly values keeping arborists safe and efficient on the job, focusing on manufacturing high-performance rope and rigging gear that not only meet but exceed all expectations.
