RIT Rescue Escape Systems - 3/8" Tubular Kevlar Rope

RIT's 3/8" tubular kevlar rope is used in both our search and egress systems. This tubular Kevlar is not only light weight, but easily compactable which makes it ideal for either application.

  • 5,500 pound tensile strength
  • 862 degree temperature rating
  • When used for egress, tubular webbing must be accompanied by the RIT Descender
  • Rope made from Kevlar is pound for pound five times as strong as steel and obviously much lighter in weight
  • Rope made of Kevlar is stronger, at the same weight, than nylon or polyester rope
  • Rope made of Kevlar does not suffer shrinkage like most other rope made from organic fibers when exposed to hot air or hot water
  • Rope made of Kevlar exhibits far less creep (lengthening of a material under constant load) than nylon or polyester
  • Rope made of Kevlar is less apt to suffer stress rupture (sudden failure of a material when it is held under a load less than its tensile strength for a period of time)
  • Rope made of Kevlar has excellent chemical resistance and heat resistance
