NFPA ANSI OSHA Pulleys, swivels, rig plates, snap hooks, carabiners, F4, descenders, descent control devices from Sterling RopeSterling Rope’s AZTEK Elite System is a unique multi-function rescue and haul system.

The AZTEK is contained in a pouch-style bag that clips around the users waist and can easily be transferred from person-to-person.
Once configured, the system creates either a 5:1 mechanical advantage or a 4:1 with a change of direction.
The Sterling AZTEK system is exceptionally versatile and can be used for edge restraint, adjustable directional, high directional guyline, back tie, load release hitch, litter rigging and attendant attachments, self rescue or pick off, haul system and more.

The AZTEK with it's intrinsic "Set of Fours" (4:1 or a 5:1 mechanical advantage) literally has 101 uses....
General Technical Field Results Information (Note: official results may vary)
 Slippage on ratchet prusik at approx 17-18kN
 Slipped again @ 20kN and did not slip anymore
 System failed at 40.42kN
 4inch slippage of prusik

The pulley failed at the "becket" where the 8mm sewn eye attaches and also broke the pin. Ratchet was fused to 8mm Edge Restraint cord. The MBS on the 6mm ratchet is 12.9kN so we were getting close to the ratchet limit. It was great to see the system go to 40kN.
