Handled Ascenders for Rescue, Rope Access and Climbing
Ultra-light pulley and rope clamp designed for work, rope climbing maneuvers, rescue and self-rescue situations.
The CMC Ascender utilizes a spring-loaded cam to facilitate progression on life safety rope. Widely used by rescue teams for ascending rope, as an attachment to a litter harness tender line, as a travel restrict rope grab, and other applications where a mechanical ascender provides greater efficiency.
The D5 is a double-stop device with an auto-lock function, which is activated whenever the operator releases the handle; and a panic-brake function, which is not overly sensitive in normal use. The D5 also has a double-locking safety mechanism. In addition to the locking button, the side plates are designed such that the plates cannot be rotated open, whilst under load, due to the position of the Carabiner.
