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.
The KM IIIåÊis 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.
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.
This webbing is specially built to commercial versions of military specifications. For all rigging uses: slings, anchorages, even hasty seats.
