We can't deny petzls announcements for new products tease Rope technicians globally but what have they been working on for 2017. We took a look at the new products and other than some shiny pulley beaners nothing tickled our harnesses. However its not all doom and gloom as we stubbled across the Petzl Trac Plus Zipline pulley. you may be familiar with the old one.
So whats the story with new one. Well its completely drop proof with its vertigo wire lock park Karabeaner being attached to the pulley. It has the latest in bearing technology.
It has a working load limit of 1.4kn But a breaking load limit of 20kn
Cable diameter: 9 to 13 mm (may also be used on ropes)
Weight: 405 g
Material(s): aluminum, stainless steel, nylon
Certification(s): CE, EAC
Ease of use: - unit is drop-proof thanks to the VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK PARK carabiner attached to the pulley - two in-line sheaves ensure good stability - front and rear fairings limit the risk of pinched fingers
Special construction for intensive use: - longer life, thanks to the latest double-row ball bearing technology - VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK PARK carabiner with reinforced construction and hard anodization for greater resistance to damp and salty environments - two supports for the progression carabiners allow them to be protected from cable wear - joining piece distributes contact points between the carabiner and the pulley to increase the longevity of the carabiner
Easier for the operator: - clip-on, optimally shaped lockable cover (screws included) makes it easy to connect the TRAC PLUS to a pulley lanyard - identification with Datamatrix code for quick inspection of product - product comes ready to assemble (screws included) - sold individually or in packs of 10
Yes yes we know not your everyday rope access device but we still think they look pretty neat and would like to try one!
