In the production of the unique Fast Rope, special PA BCF fibres are used which give superior protection during descending, having high resistance to wear and rupture. The rope with a diameter of 44 mm and a unique construction offers the user good control during descending without additional belay. We are able to supply our key military clients in many countries with Fast Ropes also in diameters 40 mm and 32 mm.
• spliced eye with high strength and resistance, for frequent straining and loading (e.g. in practising).
• eye made of express slings (ST-short termination) – lightweight and especially short eye with high strength. Easy examination of seams and express slings after removal of the protector. In emergency the rope may be simply cut at the termination.
• eye with metal termination (MT-metal termination) for different types of metal connectors and hooks.
