CMC Rescue Escape Artist

CMC Rescue Escape Artist

128.99 USD

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Escape - Patented

The Most Advanced Escape Descent Control Device Available

The Escape Artist is fast becoming the industry standard, thanks to its hands-free edge transition and optimal descent control. When evaluating descenders side by side, many departments prefer the Escape Artist to other alternatives. Intended to be pre-rigged on an escape line and kept ready for immediate use, the Escape Artist pays out the rope smoothly and then locks when loaded, leaving both hands free to negotiate the exit. Squeezing the lever controls the descent rate. Intended for the most extreme conditions, the Escape Artist features all-metal construction and minimal parts to ensure durability and reliable performance. The handle is located inside the side plates to reduce the potential of catching on an edge and to increase mechanical advantage for easier control. The unique design of the double-brake version ensures that if you squeeze the handle too hard, the Escape Artist will slow or stop your descent. The modified cam is designed to work with rope and CMC’s new FR Escape Web.

The Escape Artist uses a wrap-and-a-half of the rope around the cam to activate the auto-locking function. This simple,patented design provides foolproof activation while limiting the forces on the rope in the event of a fall,increasing safety. The cam has been updated with a new flange that extends a full 270° around the circumference, providing better rope guidance and optimizing the design for use with either escape cord or our new FR Escape Web.

Escape Artist features:

  • Variable friction allows user to control rate of descent
  • Patented auto-locking design allows hands-free edge transitions
  • Works equally well with or without gloves of all types
  • Constructed of aluminum and stainless steel
  • Compact and lightweight

CMC Rescue Arizona Vortex Anchor Device

4595.0 USD

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General Use EN 795

The father of all portable anchor/high directional systems, the Arizona Vortex is a tripod, bipod and monopod in one all-inclusive kit. Its two-piece head can be rigged as a standard tripod or, in advanced applications, as an A-frame, a sideways A-frame, or a gin pole. The tripod can be formed into an easel A-frame with adjustable leg lengths.The versatile third leg allows rescuers to set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial, or wilderness location. On A-frame and easel A-frame applications, pulleys can be attached directly into the Head Set without carabiners, eliminating lost head space and working clearance. This feature makes the Vortex ideal for use with high lines and tracking line offsets. The extra attachment points also work well for rope access where several lines may be needed over the edge. Raptor and flat foot sets are both included to provide a secure footing on varying terrain. Also included: bright colored flags that can be attached to pins to increase visibility and an 18 kN MBS cord for securing the legs.

CMC Rescue Fire Rescue Harness, Black/Red

CMC Rescue Fire Rescue Harness, Black/Red

374.99 USD

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Class III and ANSI Z359.1

This versatile, multiple-use harness for fire rescue features our new JackBack™ removable padding with breathable D3 cloth, which keeps shoulder straps separated, making donning and doffing faster. Used by fire department rescue teams, USAR teams, helicopter crews, and wilderness SAR teams, this extremely popular harness also features a dorsal D-ring that allows adjustment for different size rescuers, but stays in place when loaded, greatly increasing comfort. Gear loops have been improved for easier access. The front waist D-ring allows a comfortable, stable sitting position for rappels and the sternum D-ring works well for helicopter hoists. Quick-connect shoulder straps and leg loops make donning the harness simple and fast. Pads on the leg loops can be adjusted to the most comfortable position. The front lift assembly accepts screw links for adding a chest ascender or safety lanyards. Attachment points: front waist, sternal, dorsal.

The Advantage of the Fixed Dorsal D-Ring
While the dorsal D-ring on our Fire-Rescue and Rigger’s Harnesses adjusts so it can be properly positioned, it is designed not to slide up when the D-ring is loaded. If the force of loading the harness, either under normal use or during a fall, slides a dorsal D-ring up toward the back of the user’s head, the web going over the shoulders could pinch in toward the user’s neck. Not only is this uncomfortable, it could even compromise the carotid arteries with severe results. Fixing the dorsal D-ring to the rear waist portion of the harness prevents this from occurring and allows the peak impact force to be absorbed by the pelvis and the thighs—as opposed to the back—increasing rescuer comfort and safety.

StratLoad™ Attachment Points
The patented StratLoad Attachment Points for our litters allow any size carabiner to be used to attach a lifting bridle while keeping both the carabiners and the lifting bridle on the inside of the litter’s top rail. This provides protection from abrasion along cliff faces and building walls. The StratLoad feature also prevents cross gate and side loading of carabiners and orients the direction of pull along the spine of the carabiner, where it is strongest. StratLoads are 1/4 in. (6mm) thick with a full round radius on the inside edge, allowing the option of a soft attachment, which is then protected by the top railing. StratLoads are now standard on all stainless and titanium litters.

CMC Rescue System Lifting Bridle

CMC Rescue System Lifting Bridle

CMC Rescue Rescue Rack, 13mm

CMC Rescue Rescue Rack, 13mm

149.99 USD

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General Use & Light Use
Innovative Features Deliver Enhanced Performance

The CMC Rescue Rack offers several innovative features to provide enhanced performance. The “fat” aluminum bars provide excellent control for rescue loads. The bars are center drilled to reduce weight and allow better heat dissipation. The finish also prevents transfer of material to the rope, common with bare aluminum bars. The Turbo Bar at the top has a tie-off pin on the side. The second bar has a straight slot to help warn the user of a misrigged rack. Since the top two bars do most of the work, they are a full one inch in diameter. The next four angled slot bars are 7/8 inch. The stainless steel frame has a welded eye. The rack comes assembled, ready for use.

CMC's Super Finish
CMC’s Rescue Racks have the exceptionally long wearing proprietary finish that is also used on our aluminum Rescue 8s. Whether hard or soft, the surface anodizing on aluminum descenders eventually wears through. Working with a company that specializes in material coatings, we developed a finish for our Rescue 8 and Rappel 8 that outwears every descender we’ve used. After years of heavy use, test samples continue to be used in CMC Rescue School classes without showing any indication of the surface wearing through.

CMC Rescue Anchor Plate

CMC Rescue Anchor Plate

57.99 USD

UL Classified NFPA 1983 - General Use

A CMC original design that has withstood the test of time, our Anchor Plates keep the carabiners holding the different parts of your rescue system from jamming together. The hardware becomes easier to see, making safety checks more accurate. It can also keep you from clipping a carabiner into the wrong loop of the anchor web. For anchor systems, it makes an excellent collection point. Weuse the Anchor Plate in CMC Rope Rescue classes, which allows our students to set up systems faster with fewer mistakes. Hole diameters: small – 7/8 in. (22cm), large – 2 in. (51 cm).

Twenty years ago CMC introduced the Anchor Plate

as a strong, lightweight, and compact collection point for connecting a rescue system to an anchor. And that point is an important feature. Over the years we’ve seen a steady progression of “bigger, better” anchor and rigging plates with more and more holes entering the market. But the bigger the plate, the less like a collection point it becomes, increasing the potential for rotation of the plate,creating additional system extension and shock-loading if any movement or failure of an anchor occurs. In 20 years of use, we’ve not seen an operational need for more holes, a larger size, or more weight.

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Class II
