Lane Ropes

Wavebreaker by ICL

Wavebreaker Lane Ropes by ICL  

The Wavebreaker by ICL is the latest development in racing lane technology.  Made in Christchurch, New Zealand from UV & chlorine stabilised polypropylene to ensure longevity in the harsh environment that a commercial swimming pool offers.  Each lane is made up of a series of 110mm diameter discs with a recessed donut float  between. This ensures a seamless wave breaking action across the entire length of the racing lane.  A 3mm 316 grade stainless steel wire is used to string the discs together, with 316 grade S-hook and ICL turnbuckle tensioner for attaching the racing lane to your lane rope anchors.
