The KM III is an exceptional static rope for rappelling, caving, rescue, top roping, fixed rope applications, hauling, and life safety applications. The unique polyester sheath differentiates KM-III from other static ropes. The polyester sheath is balanced with a nylon core to limit rotation, bouncing, and stretch.
KM III is NFPA and CE approved, and all come with an NFPA certification tag and CE labels. Thirty-two bobbins provide the correct sheath for the unique demands of static rope and the optimum sheath/core ratio. This allows for an incredibly smooth sheath, higher tensile strengths, and superior handling characteristics.
Built to the exacting EN1891 standard for static ropes, KM-III is the industry standard for rescue and rappelling operations. The kernmantle construction consists of a durable polyester cover over bundles of unidirectional nylon core yarns. The polyester cover absorbs less water, has lower stretch, and is more abrasion resistant than the nylon covers found on some static ropes. The polyester cover and nylon core are balanced during manufacturing to attain the ultimate in performance.
