VERTEX Canada version - Comfortable helmet for work at height and rescue
The VERTEX helmet is very comfortable, thanks to its six-point textile suspension and CENTERFIT and FLIP&FIT systems, which guarantee that the helmet fits securely on the head. The adjustable-strength chinstrap makes it ideal for both work at height and on the ground. The unventilated outer shell protects against electrical hazards, molten metal splash and flames. With its potential for integration of a Petzl headlamp, hearing protection, and multiple accessories, it is an entirely modular helmet, thus meeting the specific additional needs of professionals.
Another remarkable innovation from Rescue Systems, Inc. the OMNI-SLING is comprised of a unique webbing weave which adds incredible strength without compromising on weight.
Constructed with 2 inch long slots and separated by 1 inch of solid webbing, the OMNI-SLING is the only rigging anchor sling that has a separate rigging point every 3 in. Rigging slots are actually woven into the original webbing construction and not simply sewn in, yielding incredible strength and versatility.
Sewn daisy-chain rigging loops often fail at the stitch points well below the sling's rated strength (as most sewn daisy-chains utilize 1-inch tubular webbing with a tensile strength of 4,000 lbs). The webbing used in the OMNI-Sling has an ultimate tensile strength of 8,000 lbf and exceeds all standards and regulations for one person life support lines. When looped like a basket hitch, the OMNI-Sling meets rescue weight requirements.
Available in orange or black, with special lengths available upon request.
The NER prusik cord strikes the perfect balance between firm and supple. It is engineered specifically as prusik cord so that the rope has enough give to grip the rope but not be so mushy that the knot locks up. This results in a smooth, controlled movement over the climbing rope and makes untying the prusik knot easier to manage.
The Ferno Fastrap Quick Restraint 10-point, six-strap system is used to quickly secure patients to backboards and other devices. It is designed for easy storage and rapid application in patient immobilization.
