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 SMC Rigging Ring is the strongest aluminum ring of its size on the market. The SMC Rigging Ring was designed as the ultimate climbing accessory and can be used in conjunction with anchor systems, haul systems, or as a connection point, providing that missing link which is often needed. The inside diameter will accommodate three standard sized carabiners.
This carabiner sets the standard in climbing, mountaineering and rescue applications. Extremely lightweight, it offers high strength and a large gate opening for functional versatility. The locking sleeve engages the gate rather than the frame to prevent jamming.
Large size locking carabiners developed by SMC especially for the needs of the fire and rescue communities. Available in several different metal finishes, as well as in both NFPA (Class G) and non-NFPA versions. Black zinc coated models are ideal for tactical operations while the stainless steel model is best for corrosive environments. The large gate opening fits easily over litter rails and all models have stainless gates and locking sleeves for greater strength and reliability.
