Traverse 540 Rescue Belay Device - Large - NFPA

UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General Use

Developed specifically to meet the needs of rescue system belays, the 540 Rescue Belay is a self-locking device that meets demanding drop-test criteria - able to hold falling loads quickly while limiting the peak force. This well engineered device is easy to rig and the symmetrical design reduces the risk of improper loading. A built-in release lever releases the tension on the belay rope, eliminating the need for a release hitch.

The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue Belay Competence Drop Test specifies a 1 meter drop onto 3 meters of kernmantle rescue rope with less than 1 meter of additional travel and less than 15 kN peak force. For a General Use rated device, a 280 kg load and a 12.7mm rope are generally used. For a Light Use device, a 200 kg load and an 11.1 mm rope is used.
