This lightweight, full-strength, Prusik-minding pulley is ideal for mountain rescue, swiftwater, or other technical teams where equipment weight is a significant consideration.
By machining the side plates, the thickness of the metal can be varied to maximize the strength-to-weight ratio, a process that cannot be done with traditional bent metal side plates. Sealed ball bearings provide high efficiency and aluminum side plates protect the rope. An extremely low-profile stainless steel axle assembly reduces snagging on rocks, roots, and uneven surfaces. Designed for lifeline up to 1/2 inch (13mm) in diameter.
Working-At-Height / Industrial Rope Access / Technical Rope Rescue
Working at height requires reliable, quality equipment. The Rescue Pulley can be used with confidence in work-at-height maneuvers for industrial rope access or technical rope rescue when used in accordance with the regulatory safety standards it falls under. Always use life safety equipment and gear according to the regulatory safety standards for which it is classified and/or certified.
The CMC Rescue School offers training classes for work-at-height rope access and rope rescue. Some courses may include instruction about proper use of the Rescue Pulley or similar pulleys used in rope rigging systems. CMC Rescue School provides training with course work in technical rescue, tower rescue, fire rescue, confined space rescue & entry, trench rescue, emergency building shoring (EBS), rope access, rope rigging as well as custom contract rope rescue and industrial rope access courses offering class work for the specific needs in the above disciplines or in search and rescue (SAR), urban search and rescue (USAR), helicopter air operations (heli-ops, helo-ops), swiftwater rescue and tactical maneuvers.
