Xmonster-7.5mm/8mm Shield Kernmantle Rope Aramid escape rope meets NFPA 1983:2012 and is mainly used by fire departments for protection during firefighting operations. Our aim is to develop a rope that improves the safety of firefighters, especially of those working in tall buildings.
Aramid escape line fulfills the most important criteria for bailout situations, thanks to its high decomposition point (500°C / 900°F) and durability. Aramid fiber is the ideal material for these requirements of a fire escape rope. Consequently, sharp glass, rough materials, or great heat will not be able to threaten the integrity of this rope.
The advantages of this heat resistant rope are:
• Especially designed for firefighters
• High decomposition point and durability due to aramid fiber
- High temperature resistance
- Diameter: 7.5mm
- Breaking strength: 18.3kN
- Elongation: @1.35kN 5.0%, @2.7kN 6.0%, @4.4kN 6.3%
- Diameter: 8mm
- Breakin strength: 22.1kN
- Elongation: @1.35kN 2.2%, @2.7kN 2.1%, @4.4kN 3.8%
Xmonster-7.5mm/8mm Shield Kernmantle Rope: Fire Rescue Rope Tailored for Ultimate Safety
In the high-stakes realm of firefighting, the importance of equipment can't be overstated. At the heart of a firefighter's toolkit is the rope, a tool whose strength and reliability can mean the difference between life and death. The Shield is not just any rope—it's a premium Kernmantle Rope designed specifically for fire rescue missions.
Why Kernmantle Rope? The unique structure of a Kernmantle Rope, comprising a strong core encased in a protective sheath, offers unmatched durability and safety. With Shield, this design reaches new heights, blending the best features of both Static Rope and Semi Static Rope. While a Static Rope is favored for its low stretch under weight, making it ideal for rescue operations, a Semi Static Rope provides just enough elasticity to absorb some energy, crucial in certain rescue scenarios. Shield marries these qualities, tailored to the unique demands of firefighting.
The magic of Shield lies in its use of Aramid fiber, giving it a high decomposition point of 500°C / 900°F. This means that in the blistering heat of a fire, where standard Static Rope or even Semi Static Rope might falter, Shield stands firm. It's more than just the resistance to heat; it's about enduring sharp debris, abrasive materials, and the unpredictability of a fire scene. It's a Kernmantle Rope built for the unexpected.
Given the intense challenges of fire rescue, choosing the right rope is paramount. A Static Rope is often chosen for operations that require minimal stretch. However, scenarios demanding a bit of flexibility to minimize jolts will see the Semi Static Rope as a preferred choice. But with Shield's Kernmantle Rope design, you get the best of both worlds, without any compromises.
Available in diameters of 7.5mm and 8mm, the Shield doesn't just talk the talk. Its specifications, from breaking strength to elongation properties, stand testament to its superior design and purpose.
In summation, the Shield isn't merely another rope in the market. It's the embodiment of safety, innovation, and performance. It showcases what a Kernmantle Rope should be while integrating the best properties of both Static Rope and Semi Static Rope. For those who prioritize safety and reliability, Shield delivers on all fronts and then some.For further product details, please click here.
