|CMI rappel racks are designed for use as a personal descending device or for lowering large loads in rescue situations.|
The rack is 19.5 inches longth and suitable for loads up to 10,000 lbs. MBS (44kN)
This is a mid-duty rappel rack well suited for long descents and works with ropes up to 13mm diameter.
The Sport Rappel Racks are formed from 3/8" diameter T-304 stainless steel and are fitted with oversize stainless steel bars. Stainless steel is superior over aluminum because of its "wearever" qualities.
In order to compensate for the reduced friction inherent in stainless bars, the radius of the friction surface has been increased to a full 1/2".
The result is a longer wearing bar with maximum control. Due to the "open back" style of the bars featured on CMI Rappel Racks, improper rigging is easier to spot which aids in accident avoidance.
CMI Sport Racks are available with the eye either parallel or at 90 degrees to the bars. They feature welded eye construction; welds are Zyglo inspected to insure reliability. Versatile 6 bar configuration comes pre-rigged with angle slotted bars that snap in place.
