The new load equalizing rescue anchor system from SMC. Versatile and accommodating in various terrain, the StayK is designed for use by fire departments, rope rescue teams, swift water rescue teams, and other emergency responders. This system is very effective, efficient, and reliable.
The TR Pulley is strong, reliable compact, and lightweight. It is reasonably priced but doesn't sacrifice efficiency. Great performance for its size and cost. The TR Pulley has a true Oilite Bearing on a zinc coated axle for reliable performance.
Noting the unique requirements found in Swift Water Rescue, we created an entirely new pulley to address those needs. The Swiftwater Rescue Pulley represents a reasonably priced, non-NFPA alternative to other midsized pulleys.
Made using high quality aluminum, this lightweight pulley weighs 6 oz. and features a 2‰۪‰۪ sheave. Anodized side plates feature a series of holes that help to minimize the hydroplaning effect that might occur with a typical pulley. These side plates are also configured to work as a Prusik Minding Pulley and are precisely tensioned for easy one-handed operation and secure placement at any point along the rope.
High quality sealed ball bearings help to provide the optimal efficiency that is so crucial in rope rescue systems. They help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems and are not prone to failure under misaligned loads or with twisted gear that may occur with needle bearings.
The wide and flat base maximizes the effectiveness of a Prusik hitch while a unique side plate formation allows the use of larger ropes in a compact pulley. The top hole accepts 2 large rescue carabiners or multiple small carabiners and allows the carabiners to be rotated freely and completely even while closed.
MARSARS produces a top quality Rescue Recovery Net that connects to vessel’s side by snap hooks, ready for instant use - simply peel the velcro and it rolls out cleanly.
Most recovery nets are made out of buoyant polypropylene fibre that floats, but this Recovery Net is constructed of a ballasted polyester material that sinks. Take it from your fellow public safety folks that found it’s not fun trying to sink a buoyant net beneath a victim in the water.
MARSARS’ high-quality recovery net features:
1) The compact stored device is unrolled
2) The buoyant boom is pushed away from boat’s side by a boat pole.
3) Without handling the victim, the boat is moved forward, positioning the victim centrally above the submerged U-shaped net.
4) Par buckled net lifts the body (using a 2:1 mechanical advantage) clear of the water for transport.
5) After use, the net is removed, cleaned, dried, rolled and replaced within its cylindrical storage cover.
*The same process can be used for conscious victims when other methods of recovery have failed but the Man-Overboard Rescue Sling would be the preferred method of recovery for a conscious, uninjured victim.
