Years of development, testing and fine tuning has made the CMC prusik cord a preferred choice by rescue schools, agencies and rescuers alike. The Sewn-Loop Prusiks offer unmatched performance with strength equivalent to a tied prusik loop, just without the cumbersome knot. The factory-sewn SecureStitchTM is covered with durable clear shrink tubing that allows regular inspection and helps protect the stitching for longer life. These loops are produced with from CMC 8mm prusik cord.
Working-At-Height / Industrial Rope Access / Technical Rope Rescue
Working at height requires reliable, quality equipment. The Sewn-Loop Prusiks can be used with confidence in work-at-height maneuvers for industrial rope access or technical rope rescue when used in accordance with the regulatory safety standards they fall under. Always use life safety equipment and gear according to the regulatory safety standards for which it is classified and/or certified.
An innovation in rope rescue! The MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. More than nine years of research and development went into the patented Multi-Purpose Device (MPD), which features major innovations in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals.
The MPD's high-efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism, allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems and be quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies on-scene rigging, expediting the rescue.
The revolutionary MPD increases user safety with:
The MPD is UL Classified as a pulley, descent control device and belay device. Variable-friction descent control device for rescue systems and rappels. Incorporates a high efficiency pulley with an integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system. Built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems. Allows main line and belay line rigging to be mirror images of one another. Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising. Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line.
Meets BCCTR Rescue Belay Competency Criteria**. The MPD comes with a padded Cordura nylon storage bag and User's Manual. *13 mm version designed for use with 12.5 - 13 mm rope. Rope used for certification rounded up to 13 mm per NFPA 1983.
** The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue (BCCTR) 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 12.7-mm rope are generally used.
Our versatile Radio Holster can be carried on the belt using the loop slot or over the shoulder when looped through webbing. Dual hook-and-loop straps allow it to fit on the shoulder strap of your pack or full-body harness. The unique, universal fit radio pocket is easy to adjust and holds most models of radios securely while allowing access to all knobs, front-mounted keypads, and displays. Color: Black.
The Pick-Off Strap is designed so that a rescuer can quickly connect to the victim and then adjust the strap to the desired length. They work extremely well for positioning the victim for a lowering or rappel-based pick-off, or for an assisted rappel.
CMC has added a loop to the end for a more positive grip when pulling to adjust the strap length.
The strong 1-3/4 inch web improves long-term durability, especially where the strap threads through the buckle. Depending on how the buckle is loaded, it will begin to slip between 15 and 20 kN (3,500-4,500 lbf).
Tying off the buckle will increase the strength and minimize slippage. Fully extended length is 54 inches (137 cm).
The integrated Web Keeper allows the strap to be carried on a gear sling or harness without tangling or getting caught.
