Cancord Inc. Manufactures Lifelines and Rescue Rope to Meet Specific Demands of Industrial Safety and Rescue Applications

Cancord is a quality driven, technically focused manufacturer and supplier of ropes designed for fire search and rescue, industrial fall protection, and military life safety applications.

Many of our life safety ropes can be custom fitted with swaged eye terminations, snap hooks or carabiners to ensure they meet the specific requirements of each job site or rescue situation. Our ropes are CSA and NFPA listed where applicable, and meet the technical requirements of ULC S555.

We manufacture a full range of high performance life safety lines and ropes for use in fall protection, including nylon and polyester kernmantle ropes and Polysteel(TM) safety lines. Our line of technical ropes has been designed to maximize strength and performance through the use of innovative, high strength fibers braided into proven constructions. Our technical ropes undergo rigorous testing and ongoing product evaluation to ensure you always receive the highest quality product available.
Cancord sits on different technical and standard setting committees for fall protection and rescue ropes, which ensures we are on the cutting edge in terms of development and quality requirements. We have also incorporated extensive feedback from the field into all of our rope designs.

As a quality based rope manufacturer, we have installed well-designed test facilities to ensure our life safety products are of the utmost quality. In addition to extensive laboratory testing, all of our lifelines are hand inspected prior to shipment.
