Brake racks can be customized for your specific application. The following kits are designed based upon the preferences of frequent rack users. To determine which rack kit best fits your need, review the following: 1. Choose from 'straight' or '90 degree' harness attachment eye. Most users prefer to orient the rack's short leg pointing down. Most harnesses with a sewn-in inchD inch ring that lays flat against the user's stomach (like the PMI Avatar) need a 90 degree twist eye rack. 2. Select Aluminum or Stainless Steel bars. SS bars are cleaner on the rope and last longer, but have less friction and thus are faster rides with the same number of bars. Select a model number with an A at the end for aluminum bars (including an aluminum top bar) or an S for stainless steel bars. 3. The addition of a stainless steel top bar with an extension (hyper- bar) accommodates easy lock off and extra control - more money but worth it, especially with stainless steel bars. Select a model with an S-2 at the end. (SM13006S2 & SM13506S2 do not include hyper-bar)
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.
SMC originally designed the FLEX for the demanding Technical Fire Rescue market as a canvas replacement. Soon after using the FLEX, we realized it is much more than the ultimate in configurable rope management and protection. In fact, the FLEX is FLEXible in its uses - the only limitation is your imagination. Use a stand-alone FLEX or connect multiple FLEX pads with the FLEX CLIPS to help solve everyday problems.
SMC's Compact U Rack has many advantages over other small U racks beyond SMC's quality manufacturing. The ingenious design prevents the bars from sliding around the bottom of the rack. The standard rack width allows it to be rigged on two ropes. The upper and lower tie off bars provide a greater variability of friction and secure tie off.
