heightec HURRICANE rope grab with pulley – alloy
Casualty recovery hauling device.
Integral component of RescuePack casualty recovery systems. Allows pulley system to be created at any point along a kernmantel rope.
Unique, patented casualty recovery hauling device only available only from heightec.
Constructed of lightweight alloy with our trademark X-Cam™, designed specifically for industrial or professional use and offers immediate purchase on the rope whilst minimising the potential for rope damage.
The X-Cam™ will continue to hold over 100 kg on a rope even in the extreme event of a sheath being ruptured.
The simplicity and compactness of the HURRICANE compared with other traditional systems is a major advantage in allowing non-experts to achieve the lifting of a suspended casualty. It is the only product to allow intuitive assembly of such a system.
As the device can be attached at any point along the rope, the lifting system can be remote from the casualty, reducing the amount of rope required by around 70%.
Received innovation award by British Safety Industry Federation.
X-Cam™ design gives increased performance over traditional sharp tooth design
- Cam exerts considerable grip on rope after sheath has broken
- Cam doesn’t pluck rope
- Easy to remove from rope if accidentally jammed into knot
