Here at RopesEdge we like to think that a solid message far outweighs not promoting another company… any day of the week..
To improve, evolve & just be better at our work, topics must be approached and conversations must be had about the finer points and details of our work.. the topics that are often overlooked or “we’ve always done it that way”…
The Chafe-Pro STREP System has been making impressions in the rope access & rope rescue industry and now in the recreational climbing world as well.. 👍🏼
And we think that that’s a very good thing..
The goals as a climber, rigger or rope rescue technician are to identify, assess & control the risks that are involved in our gravity defying work.. whether it’s Edge Management, or the traffic in the street below..
When it comes to Edge Management, these are only some of the things that we must consider;
Can I – Remove the hazard altogether?
Can I – Avoid or get around the hazard?
And then, if I must “protect”…
What is – the Contact point if I use fabric?
What is – the actual Bend radius if I use fabric?
Is the hazard – Abrasive or Sharp..?
Could there be – any Unintended movement..?
As a manufacturer.. Covering the bases by adding functional key features like; extra connection/tie down options, retention systems, thicker/more durable materials and quality manufacturing to a purpose built protector is becoming the new norm..
The end user is asking for more out of the manufacturer..
Edge Management systems & purpose built protectors are no longer a disposable item bought as a consumable because all it is is an old piece of fire hose with some velcro & grommets sewn into them..
And again, we think that that is a very good thing.. ✔️👌🏽
