CMC Aluminum Rappel 8 - NFPA
UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Light Use
The design of the popular CMC Rappel has been refined. The slightly more compact design offers superb control on 3/8 to 7/16 in. rope, which makes it just right for SWAT teams, climbers, cavers, and sport rappellers. Machined from 1/2 in. aluminum plate, the Rappel 8 contains almost twice the material of other small 8s, providing better heat dissipation. Now with CMC's exotic proprietary finish for even longer wear resistance.
The NFPA 1983 (2006) minimum breaking strength is determined by rigging the descent control device in the manner of use, then locking off. For all CMC Rescue descenders, the failure mode was the rope, not the device being tested.
