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.
