Your Choice of Rope

 

SAFE TECH

safe tech rope
Safe Tech Escape Rope is a more cost-effective solution for those who want the high heat resistance of an all Technora escape rope without the higher cost. Safe Tech combines the high heat resistance of Technora into its sheath with the strength and better elongation properties of a nylon core into a single, more cost-effective package. Although we hope that you never have to use this item in an emergency, rest assured that if the need to use it arises in an emergency, this product is backed by years of research and development, testing and actual fieldwork. The rope can be purchased separately or with one of three different anchor hooks sewn on. The ropes with sewn anchor hooks each come with 50 ft of rope. Meets NFPA 1983 for Escape Rope. Made in the U.S.A.

  • Diameter: 8 mm

  • Weight (per 50' of rope): 2.8 lbs

  • MBS: 4,383 lbf. (19.5 kN)

  • SWL: 438 lbs.

  • Sheath: Technora

  • Core: Nylon

  • Elongation at 300 lbs. - 6.8

 

FIRETECH 2

firetech 2 rope
FireTech2 is an improved version of the popular FireTech, the escape rope choice of the FDNY personal escape systems. FireTech2 is now slightly lighter weight and has a softer hand to make it easier to use with the F4 and the new FCX descent devices.  Although we hope that you never have to use this item in an emergency, rest assured that if the need to use it arises in an emergency, this product is backed by years of research and development, testing and actual fieldwork. The rope can be purchased separately or with one of three different anchor hooks sewn on. The ropes with sewn anchor hooks each come with 50 ft. of rope. 7.5mm high heat resistant, 100% Technora kernmantle construction. Meets NFPA 1983 for Escape Rope. Made in the U.S.A.

  • Diameter: 7.5 mm

  • Weight (per 50' of rope): 2.1 lbs

Descender

STERLING FCX

sterling fcx descent control device
Sterling’s most advanced self-rescue device puts control in your hands with superior descent control and panic protection.
Made in the USA.

The FCX personal escape device allows for superb over-pull protection and descent modulation. Its click-to-neutral capability can make fast work out of the horizontal movement. The cam gives you high-caliber braking modulation for a well-controlled descent which you can control with just one hand. Plus its spring-loaded handle keeps out of the way until you need it. This works to prevent tangling and snagging. The FCX personal escape device carries an MBS rating of 3,035 pounds (13.5 kilonewtons). Plus the elevated side rails eliminate glove and sill interference. And at 7.8 ounces (221.126 grams) of 7075-T6 American precision-machined aluminum, the FCX is a reliable choice as your firefighter bailout system. 

It is certified NFPA 1983 (Escape Descent Device) and serves as a wise choice for a last chance rescue.

Hook

STERLING LIGHTNING GT HOOK

sterling lightning gt hook

The Sterling Lightning GT hook offers a breakthrough in personal escape anchors. By integrating a gated hitching slot with a traditional hook anchor, firefighters now have the option of an easy to rig remote anchor. No need for complicated knots tied in the dark with bulky gloves. Double click through the gated hitching slot and move to the exit. Precision machined from 7000 series aluminum for strength and durability. The Lightning GT is the lightest, most versatile anchor hook available. Pair it with the FCX device and a Sterling Escape Rope to create the most versatile firefighter escape system ever. Made in the USA.

Weighing less than 8 ounces, the aluminum Lightning Hooks offer a functional design with either a hitching slot or innovative wire gate for secure and rapid remote anchoring. The design of the Lightning Hooks helps take the guesswork out of the most fundamental step of creating a fail-safe anchor.
