CMC Rescue Rack
CMC Rescue Rack

     UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General / Technical Use

The CMC Rescue Rack offers several innovative features to provide enhanced performance. The “fat” aluminum bars provide excellent control for rescue loads. The bars are center drilled to reduce weight and allow better heat dissipation. The finish also prevents transfer of material to the rope, common with bare aluminum bars. The Turbo Bar at the top has a tie-off pin on the side. The second bar has a straight slot to help warn the user of a misrigged rack. Since the top two bars do most of the work, they are a full one inch in diameter. The next four angled slot bars are 7/8 inch. The stainless steel frame has a welded eye. The rack comes assembled, ready for use.

CMI Rescue Rack
CMI Rescue Rack

CMI Sport Racks are formed from 3/8" diameter stainless steel and are fitted with oversize stainless steel bars. We chose stainless steel over aluminum because of its "wearever" qualities. In order to compensate for the reduced friction inherent in stainless bars, we increased the radius of the friction surface to a full 1/2". The result is a longer wearing bar with maximum control. With the "open back" style of the bars featured on CMI Rappel Racks, improper rigging is easier to spot which aids in accident avoidance.

CMI Rescue Racks are designed along the lines of the original "super rack." They come pre-rigged with six bars, five straight slotted stainless steel and an oversize aluminum top bar to aid in locking off.

CMC Rescue 8 w/Ears

     UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General/Technical Use.

Machined from 1/2-inch (12.5-mm) plate, our classic Rescue 8 design has been refined for even better performance with today’s selection of rescue rope. Descenders no longer routinely use 5/8-in (16-mm) rope, so the smaller dimensions of our Rescue 8 provide greater control. The proprietary finish on the aluminum model provides outstanding wear resistance, while the nickel-chrome-plated steel model excels in high-wear situations, such as sandy, gritty environments. The extended carabiner hole accommodates multiple carabiners.

* Certified range of rope diameters and CMC’s recommendation for best performance.

The industry standard for rescue grade descenders.   10,000 lbs MBS
