UL Classified to NFPA 1983 (2017 ED.) – General Use
Originally developed by Reed Thorne of Arizona-based Ropes That Rescue, the AZTEK (Arizona Technician’s Edge Kit) offers more than 100 rigging solutions in a bag, and reflects the philosophy of keeping rigging equipment simple, efficient, non-specialized, light and small. Thorne also worked closely with CMC Pro to create the innovation-loaded, AZTEK ProSeries® Pack.
The subsequent design of the new CMC Rescue AZTEK ProSeries System leaves no detail ignored. Each component — from the cord to the pack — was thoroughly tested and proven to work efficiently in this multifunctional system that comes pre-rigged for immediate deployment to the field. The CMC Rescue AZTEK ProSeries System is the only AZTEK System UL Classified to NFPA 1983 (2017 ED.) – General Use, Manufactured System.
With 50 feet of 8 mm AZTEK ProSeries® Cord (CMC Rescue’s high-performance 100% nylon blend with abrasion resistance), the set-of-fours system can extend to 12 feet while providing a 5:1 mechanical advantage (M/A) with a minimum breaking strength (MBS) of 36 kN (8,093 lbf).
For an edge travel-restraint system, with nearly 50 feet of adjustable travel, simply attach the carabiner end of the cord to an appropriate anchor. The tubular web Edge-Pro can also be repositioned when wrapping the cord around anchors with abrasive surfaces.
Whether using the set-of-fours (SOFs) as a quick 4:1 or 5:1 M/A for a multitude of rigging applications, or for personal edge protection, the versatile AZTEK ProSeries System gives rescuers endless rigging solutions.
