heightec’s HURRICANE is a stainless steel rope grab; very widely used in fire and rescue service. Selected for use by all official UK Urban Search and Rescue Teams. Received innovation award by British Safety Industry Federation.
This unique, patented product is available only from heightec. Stainless steel pulley for reliability, durability and corrosion resistance. The special cam X-Cam design is specifically for industrial or professional use and offers immediate purchase on the rope whilst minimising the potential for rope damage. The X-Cam design 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. It can be attached at any point along the rope, even if it is loaded and the lifting system can be remote from the casualty. This reduces the amount of rope required by 70%.
Included in the Advanced Lifting & Lowering Kit (WK55) for rigging and light lifting.
Core component of the OHL – Overhead Lines Rescue System (WK38075) multi use rescue and recovery kit.
