CMC Traverse 540° Rescue Belay

UL Classified to UL Certified to NFPA 1983 - General Use

Developed specifically to meet the needs of rescue system belays. Passes the BCCTR Rescue Belay Competence Drop Test Criteria*

The well engineered Traverse 540° is a patented, self locking, easy to rig device that meets demanding drop test criteria: able to hold falling loads quickly while limiting the peak force. The symmetrical design reduces the risk of improper rigging. A built-in release lever discharges the tension on the belay rope, eliminating the need for a release hitch.

Working-At-Height / Industrial Rope Access / Technical Rope Rescue
Working at height requires reliable, quality equipment. The Traverse 540° Rescue Belay can be used with confidence for work positioning or fall restraint protection 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.
