Details

Fire-resistant "tag" lines that help firefighters maintain physical contact in extreme heat and rapidly deteriorating conditions.

RIT Lines are rapidly becoming one of the best personal life-safety tools used in firefighting search and rescue situations. Sterling developed the RIT 900 to give firefighters the ability and confidence to be "hands free" in difficult search operations. RIT Lines are fire-resistant "tag" lines that help firefighters maintain physical contact in extreme heat and rapidly deteriorating conditions. They significantly increase a team's speed, efficiency, and safety within a burning building. They also provide reference points so that additional outside crews are able to follow in quickly and safely.

  • 100% Aramidfiber construction with heat resistance up to 900° Fahrenheit
  • 6.8mm cord made with a hollow braid construction
  • Available in: 40', 50', 100', 150', 200', 300' lengths

The RIT 900 features an all-aramid fiber construction with heat resistance up to 900° Fahrenheit. Aramid fibers such as Kevlar, Technora, and Twaron are abrasion and cut resistant and can handle high temperatures. This makes these fibers ideal for RIT Lines. At 900° F, aramid fibers disintegrate, but do not melt. The RIT 900 is a 6.8mm cord made with a hollow braid construction. It's very complact, supple, easy to knot and makes an ideal "tag line" cord. It has become the top rope of choice of many fire departments in the United States.

Note: Since this rope is only a 6.8mm cord, it does not qualify as Personal Escape Rope under NFPA 1983, 2001 Edition. See our Escape Tech if you require Personal Escape Rope.
