World's First NFPA Aluminum Carabiners
Years ago it occurred to us that just maybe not everyone wanting the NFPA "G" rating (41kN) wanted to haul around heavy steel carabiners. We thought it would be possible to make aluminum biners that would be strong enough. We suggested it years ago to the company we made carabiners for, but they didn't think those users cared about weight. When we became independant, we approached CMC with the idea and they loved it. We introduce a big ladder hook carabiner and FDNY quickly becomes the biggest user. Compared to the dated steel biner it replaced, ours is 1 lb. lighter, rappels better and has a much better autolock system. We follow this up with a normal size "G" rated aluminum biner. It instantly becomes the standard for many teams.
A New Vortex
We redesigned the Vortex tripod, giving it many new features refined by years of user experience with the original.
