Rappelling system integrates on to SCBA
The belt features a patented quick-release jettison system that allows the Warrior SCBA to be disengaged from the belt with a tug of two quick release pull straps. By pulling these straps, the firefighter jettisons the SCBA, allowing an escape from a confined space without the bulk of the SCBA. The straps also allow the firefighter to change easily the orientation of the SCBA while keeping the MMR secure on the facepiece.
The Sperian Warrior Escape Belt and Rappelling System is multi-functional. The belt is constructed of a Kevlar and Nomex weave that is braided, minimizing the possibility of breakage. It is highly visible, with a silver stripe and offers an impressive 4,000 lbs of tensile strength.
The Sperian escape and rappelling belt is available from all Sperian Fire distributors in North America. Visit www.sperianfire.com
