Fall protection equipment specialist 3M introduces the new DBI-SALA Rollgliss Technical Rescue pre-sewn prusik loops.
The pre-sewn prusik loops from DBI-SALA eliminate the use of knots that could work their way free and create safety issues. Constructed from high strength kernmantle rope, the prusik loops provide a strong sliding hitch that is ready for use when required. The stitched ends are covered in clear heat shrink to provide added protection and easy visual inspection, while allowing the short loop end of the prusik to be choked down so it bites onto the karabiner, keeping it under tension in the correct orientation.
Ashley Campbell, National Training & Rescue Manager for 3M explains that the new pre-sewn prusiks are not only more convenient and easier to use than tied prusiks, but also have a higher level of safety as the sewn ends eliminate the use of knots that could come loose.
Available in three different sized colour coded ropes measuring 6mm, 7mm and 8mm in diameter, each rope size is available in a variety of lengths that can be used for specific technical rope rescue and industrial access applications.
3M, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide, is home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment.
