Angled slot brake bars formed in a "U" shape. Stainless steel bars will not leave aluminum streaks on your rope and will last longer than aluminum bars.
Angled slot brake bars formed in a "U" shape. Stainless steel bars will not leave aluminum streaks on your rope and will last longer than aluminum bars. This model comes with a training groove to ensure appropriate loading.
Type #304 stainless steel construction, with a welded eye for extra strength. Each eye weld is inspected for dye penetration before shipping. Average tensile of material used is over 10,000 lbf.
Developed specifically to meet the needs of rescue system belays. The well-engineered Traverse 540 is a patented, self-locking, easy-to-rig device that meets demanding drop-test criteria: able to hold falling loads quickly while limiting the peak force.
The symmetrical design reduces the risk of improper rigging. A built-in release lever discharges the tension on the belay rope, eliminating the need for a release hitch.
The 540 belay device passes the BCCTR Rescue Belay Competence Drop Test Criteria
** The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue Belay Competency Drop Test specifies a 1-meter drop onto 3 meters of kernmantle rescue rope with less than 1 meter of additional travel and less than 15 kN peak force. For a General Use rated device, a 280-kg load and a 12.5-mm rope are generally used. For a Technical Use device, a 200-kg load and an 11.1-mm rope are used.
Solid aluminum gives these bars maximum friction and good wear characteristics. Lighter than the stainless bars and available in a straight slot configuration. 7/8" diameter models fit all SMC racks.

7/8" diameter aluminum bar for one of your first or top bars. The extra mass acts as a heat sink and the training groove helps keep the rope centered in your rack. Use only one top bar per rack.
The 7/8 inch top bar is designed to stay on your rack and virtually last forever. Has machined groove to keep the rope centered. Core drill out keeps this bar cool and lightweight. Use only one top bar per rack.
The Descent Control 8 provides exceptional control. This descender performs well in repetitive rappelling and descending environments. The unique shape prevents the un-weighted end of the rope from rubbing against the rope passing around the neck of the descender. As with all SMC products, welding is done by aircraft certified welders.
GRIGRI 2 Belay device with assisted braking for 8.9 to 11 mm rope. The GRIGRI 2 belay device with assisted braking capability is designed to facilitate belay manoeuvers. The GRIGRI 2 works equally well for lead climbing and top-roping. It may be used on all single dynamic 8.9 to 11 mm ropes on the market (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes). Both compact and ultra-light, the GRIGRI 2 will accompany you on climbs around the world for many years. The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. Belay technique identical to classic belay systems: both hands on the rope. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope. Assisted braking: during fall arrest, the belayer holds the free end of the rope, the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action until the rope stops sliding. The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. One hand holds the rope and the other uses the handle to unlock the cam. The patented handle design allows a very gradual release of the rope. In combination with the strong braking action of the cam, it gives a great feeling of security when lowering a partner or rappelling. The GRIGRI 2 is compact and ultra-light at 185 g (25 % smaller and 20 % lighter than the GRIGRI). Built with a stainless steel friction plate and cam to ensure a long life for the product. For 8.9 to 11 mm single ropes (optimized for 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm ropes). Diagrams for rope installation engraved on belay device (interior and exterior).
Self-Braking Descender With Anti-Panic Function For Technical Rescue
The I’D L self-braking descender is primarily designed for technical rescue. It has an ergonomic handle that allows comfortable descent control. The integrated anti-panic function and anti-error catch limit the risk of an accident due to user error. The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to position themselves without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle. The safety gate allows the rope to be installed with the device remaining connected to the harness. I'D L is compatible with 12.5 to 13 mm ropes and allows handling of loads up to 280 kg.
The Kootenay HX from SMC is the most advanced Knot Passing Pulley (KPP) on the market. This is an entirely new and more compact design and lives up to its "HX" - High-Performance name as the lightest KPP on the market which is UL Certified to NFPA General Use.
Durable, strong and efficient... This versatile piece of equipment is essential for the rescue professional gear cache. Lightweight aluminum side plates are used in conjunction with a high-strength aluminum sheave. Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency and help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems.
The primary carabiner hole accepts numerous rescue carabiners. Secondary carabiner holes are provided for use with tag or belay lines. Two quick-release pins may be used to "lock off" the sheave when a high strength tie-off is required. Adding to its versatility, the Kootenay HX may also serve as an edge roller for rope protection.
The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. Designed for use with canyoning descent techniques.
