  • 3. 4 F E AT U R E D N E W P R O D U C T S CMC ProSeries Aluminum Key-Lock Carabiners Matching high performance with minimum weight, CMC ProSeries carabiners are the only aluminum carabiners that meet the NFPA strength requirements for General Use. The new key-lock design eliminates snagging and a re-designed gate provides CMC ProTech a full 1.1-inch. opening. Access Pulley See Page 31 Designed to work with 11 mm ropes, the Access Pulley is ideal for industrial applications as well as many rescue operations. The proprietary locking system does not rely on a toothed cam and can easily be unlocked while under load. The integral swivel reduces torque by aligning the pulley with the load, increasing efficiency and safety. See Page 36 CMC ProTech Oval Carabiners The ProTech Oval is a non-locking carabiner that features the key-lock design for snag-free operation and a side-swing gate for maximum gate opening. The oval design places equal force on the spine and gate, allowing the carabiner to maintain full rated strength regardless of the width of the web or rope clipped into it. See Page 32Confined Space SureClip™Entry and Here’s an essential tool for tower rescue, ropeRescue Manual access work, and non-entry confined space rescue.

  • 4. F E AT U R E D N E W P R O D U C T S 5 CMC ProTech BiWire Carabiners Wire gate carabiners are popular in the climbing world because of their light weight and high strength. CMC’s BiWire adds a new dimension to the concept by creating what is effectively a locking wire-gate carabiner. This patent- pending design features an outer gate which protects the inner gate and prevents rope or hardware from opening it. Two distinct and opposite actions are required to open the gate. Even though the wires look thin, the BiWire’s minor axis strength is comparable to a conventional gated carabiner. See Page 30 CMC ProTech Key-Lock Carabiners Here’s the ideal Light Use carabiner for rescue and rope access. The new key-lock design won’t hang up when unclipping from a har- ness or web. The wide gate opening fits over 1 in. diameter railings—unusual for a cara- biner this compact and light. See Page 30 CMC Rescue MPD™ PULLEY • RESCUE BELAY • DESCENDER Developed over seven years of research and testing, the MPD is a major advance in technical hardware for professional rope rescuers. It is a Multi-Purpose Device that performs all functions for main lines, belay/safety lines, tag lines, and hoisting lines. The MPD can be used to tension high lines and guiding lines. Training NRS Rapid and on-scene rigging are greatly simplified by using a single device. Rescuer PFD Changeovers from a lowering system to a raising system becomes faster and safer by eliminating the need to switch out and replace hardware.

  • 5. 6 F E AT U R E D N E W P R O D U C T S CMC Rescue Personal Gear Bag Here’s the perfect gear bag for your harness, helmet, goggles and Pro Pocket. When you’re wearing your gear, you can pull out the hide-away shoulder straps to turn the bag into a backpack. It has side pockets for gloves and other small items, and luggage-style handles on the top and end. See Page 64 Princeton Tec Apex-Pro™ The Apex-Pro uses two CR123 lithium batteries and Princeton Tec’s proprietary optics (which increase performance by over 30%) for incredible brightness with minimum weight. The high-output, 3-Rebel LED provides a powerful spot light, or select the array of four high-intensity ultrabright LEDs (five times brighter than standard LEDs) for wide area illumination and a longer running time. See Page 75 CMC ProTech Roof Anchor The Roof Anchor quickly provides a secure anchor point for roof operations. Set it on the roof and hammer the 1/2-inch (12 mm) diameter spike into the surface. When not in use, the spike folds into the anchor for safe storage and transport. See Page 43 NARS Escape Anchor The NARS Escape Hook gives users a high degree of flexi- bility, providing a quick solution to the problem of finding a secure anchor for a successful escape. It can be used to breach walls and anchor into studs while the oval design protects the hand. The point can be hooked over an edge or behind a solid pipe.Princeton Tec EOS II See Page 122Intrinsically Safe HeadlampWith its Class I, Division 1 rating, the EOS II Headlamp is the safest choicewhen working in hazardous environments. The single Maxbright Rebel LED Emegearputs out an incredible 50 lumens and has a running burn time of up to NeXsplint60 hours. Waterproof to one meter, it’s also an excellent choice when swimming rivers or working in Cervical Splint other environments. Not just a C-collar requiring continuous support by the medic, this is a full cervical See Page 74 splint. It acts as a force multiplier, allowing cervical stabilization in difficult-to-work locations or when access to the patient is limited. The NeXsplint fits a broad range of patient sizes and types, eliminating the need for carrying multiple collars to make sure you have the right size.

  • 6. F E AT U R E D N E W P R O D U C T S 7 CMC Survivor Escape Harness This harness is designed to be worn during fire ground operations. Made of KEVLAR® fiber web for high heat and flame resistance, it can be worn over bunker pants without compromising firefighter safety. The extended D-ring attachment point makes connecting to the D-ring easy even under a turnout coat. The D-ring folds down for greater comfort during normal wear.

  • 13. 14 CMC RESCUE HARNESSES Harness Standards Are There to Protect the Rescuer When rappelling or stretcher tending, rescuers are usually already at the ‘end of the rope’ and are not likely to fall. Working near the edge has a potential for a fall, but fortunately falls of the severity simulated in the standards happen very seldom. This is particularly true with the NFPA 1983 requirement that after a head-up fall, the harness is subjected to a second, head-down fall. The static test loads the attach- ment points on the harness to more than 10 times the weight of a rescuer. Not only is the test conducted in the normal head-up position, but also in a head-down posi- tion, requiring the harness to demonstrate its strength no matter which direction the rescuer moves. A rescue harness is tested to measure its performance as a finished product. The severity of the tests provide excellent assurance that the harness will perform exceptionally well under normal use. What is very difficult to write into the standard is the human factor—the ease of donning and comfort. Through our own experi- ences with CMC harnesses and feedback from our customers, we pay attention to donning and comfort, as well as building strength into our harness designs.

The harness is worn over the garment and incorporates a dorsal attachment point for lifting or lowering the rescuer. The web straps of the harness also provide easy grab points if an inca- pacitated rescuer needs to be lifted or moved. The har- ness may also be used with other bulky protective wear such as immersion or ice rescue suits. Because of the unknown level of exposure to chemical atmospheres or direct chemical contact inherent in a hazardous materi- als incident, haz-mat equipment is usually required to be disposable. Although designed tobe a one-time-use harness, the Haz-Mat Extrication Harness is made by CMC with the same care and quality materials as all CMCharnesses and can be reused if deployed in non-toxic atmospheres.

  • 27. 28 HARDWARE | carabiner performance requirements What Is “3σ MBS”? You might think that determining the strength of a carabiner or other piece of rescue equipment would be relatively easy. But, even with metals like aluminum and steel, two identical carabiners will break at slightly different forces. Maybe only a hundred pounds of difference, but still different. Breaking five samples, as called for by the NFPA test method, provides five different results. If only the average breaking strength is reported, the odds that your carabiner is weaker than that average are pretty good. Even if the strength of the weakest carabiner is used as the rating, there is still a possibility that your carabiner could be weaker, and there is no way to know how much weaker. The industry solution has been to use a statistical formula, referred to as three sigma (3σ). The minimum breaking strength calculation arrived at with that formula is 99.87% reliable. NFPA 1983 specifies a performance standard for rescue equipment. For example, a general-use carabiner must have a 3 sigma minimum breaking strength of at least 40 kN (8,992 lbf). The test method requires five samples and a 3σ MBS is calculated. The 2006 edition of the standard allows the manufacturer to label the product with the MBS required by the standard or any higher number that is not more than the actual 3σ MBS calculated from the test results of the five samples. CMC feels that the user is best served if we label our hardware with the minimum MBS required by the standard, while providing the actual 3σ MBS figures in our literature. During the process of our new product development, there was not enough time for Underwriters Laboratories to test all of CMC’s products before the publication of this catalog. Where we do not have test results that provide the calculated MBS, we have left the MBS blank. If the product is marked as meeting the standard, then you know that it meets the MBS required by the standard and is marked accordingly. For the actual 3σ MBS or any questions regarding product performance, please give us call or check our website at www.cmcrescue.com. Belay Device Performance Requirements NFPA 1983 does not have a specific category for “belay devices.” Depending on how the device functions, it is tested to either the Rope Grab Standard or to the Descent Control Device standard. Light-Use Rope grab devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) Descent control devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) and have a 3σ MBS of not less than 13.5 kN (3,034 lbf.) If the belay device has a passive breaking feature, the device shall not slip more than 25 mm at a force of 1.35 kN (300 lbf.) General-Use Rope grab devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 11 kN (2,500 lbf.) Descent control devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) and have a 3σ MBS of not less than 22 kN (4,946 lbf.) If the belay device has a passive breaking feature, the device shall not slip more than 25 mm at a force of 2.7 kN (600 lbf.) NFPA 1983 (2006) Pulley Performance Requirements Light-Use Minimum 3 sigma breaking strength (3σ MBS) of not less than 22 kN (4,946 lbf.) 3σ MBS of a becket of not less than 12 kN (2,698 lbf.)

The BiWireadds a totally new dimension to the concept by creating what is effectively a locking wire-gate carabiner. Two distinct andopposite actions are required to open the gate. This patent-pending design features an outer gate which protects theinner gate and prevents rope or hardware from opening it. Neither pressure from the outside or the inside of the carabinercan cause the gate to open. This makes the BiWire a safer alternative to a non-locking carabiner. The BiWire design isinherently strong and the gate is very resistant to dirt and ice. Even though the wires look thin, the BiWire minor axisstrength is comparable to a conventional gate carabiner. Interior Length: 3.5 in. (88 mm)Note: The BiWire should not be used to replace a conventional locking gate carabiner because the gate is not physicallysecured by a sleeve. It could be possible for something to push open the inner gate allowing the possibility of the cara-biner coming unclipped. So, use the BiWire as an alternative to a non-locker when you want extra strength and security.Item # Shape Color Gate Opening σ Main Axis 3σ MBS σ Minor Axis 3σ MBS Weight Price300090 Oval Bronze 1.1 in.

The “fat” aluminum bars provide excel- lent control for rescue loads. The bars are center drilled to reduce weight and allow better heat dissipation and have CMC’s excep- tionally long wearing proprietary finish that we use on our aluminum Rescue 8s. The finish also prevents transfer of material to the rope, common with bare aluminum bars. The Turbo Bar at the top has a training groove to center the rope plus a tie-off pin on the side. The second bar has a straight slot and a training groove to help warn the user of a mis-rigged 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. 3σ MBS: General Use 11.5-13 mm, 4,946 lbf.

  • 39. 40 HARDWARE | Ascenders Gibbs Ascenders Gibbs Ascenders provide excellent performance under the most adverse conditions, gripping on even muddy and icy ropes. Used for years for ascending by cavers, Gibbs are also used by many rescue teams for ratchets in haul systems and in other rope grab applications where a mechanical ascender provides greater efficiency. The Sport models are intended for ascending rope and work well for pack hauling systems for climbers and cavers. The Rescue models have a heavier shell and larger diameter pin for greater strength when used in a litter hauling system. On all models, the bottom of the shell has been modified to provide a curved interface with the rope for greater strength. With the spring loaded models, the spring prevents the ascender from sliding down the rope when the cam is not loaded. All models fit rope from 7/16 to 1/2 in. (11- 12.5 mm). Note: the breaking strength applies to the unit. The actual Gibbs/rope performance will vary depending on the type, brand, and condition of the rope.

Setthe anchor on the roof and hammer the 1/2-inch (12 mm) diameter spike into the surface. When not inuse, the spike folds into the anchor for safe storage and transport. While rated over 9,000 lbf. (36 kN),the Roof Anchor’s working strength will depend on the structural integrity of the surface, including anydamage caused by the spike. Because of the highly variable strength of roof materials and difficulty inassessing this strength accurately, the use of a second Roof Anchor or multiple units should be standardprotocol.

  • 80. Litter Shields | LITTERS & ACCESSORIES 81CMC Rescue Litter Shield PlusTaller and with a Universal Mounting BracketProtect your patient from further trauma during stretcher evacuations and carryouts. A patient in a stretch-er has a very limited ability to protect their face, head, and neck. Since its inception, the CMC Rescue LitterShield has made several “saves” by deflecting falling rocks away from patients’ heads. The shield providesprotection from falling rocks and debris, inclement weather, and brush without compromising access toand visibility of the patient’s head. The Litter Shield Plus is taller to provide more room for a patient on abackboard or litter insert, and to help reduce the “closed-in” feeling experienced by some patients. Themounting bracket eliminates the need for a railing clamp on the stretcher and allows the shield to fitmost stretchers. Molded of thick Lexan®, the Litter Shield offers impact resistance with the clarity andweather-ability of glass. Patient comfort is increased due to the reduced need for other head and faceprotective equipment. Patented. Weight: 6 lbs.

The articulating third leg allows the head tobe moved closer to an edge than in a conventional tripod.Bipod – Has good stability in one direction, but must be securely guyed. It can be Tripodpositioned square or sideways to the direction of the load.Gin Pole – The least stable configuration and needs to be securely guyed. May bethe only choice when there is not room for more than one leg.Key Benefits:• Color Coding – Top and bottom sections of the legs are colored differently to aid in assembly. The two parts of the head come in different colors for quick identification.• Telescoping Legs – The top legs telescope inside the lower legs and slide through the Bipod head to allow adjustment of both the overall height or the height of a single leg.• Pulley Mount – A pulley can be mounted directly into the head, eliminating the height lost when a carabiner is used as a connector.• Head Set Pulley Wheel – The Arizona Vortex includes a Gin Pole Head Set Pulley Wheel that mounts into the head set with a pin.

  • 139. 140 WATER RESCUE | ResQMax ResQmax™ Streamline Systems Rescue Solutions has engineered a major upgrade in the ResQmax Projectiles, making them easier to fill and more durable during use. The new filler hose assembly features a quick connect fitting for the projectile and the hose/air bottle connector. The hose/air bottle con- nector is available for SCBA, SCUBA, and DIN type fittings and con- nectors can be quickly changed with the quick connect fitting to the filler hose. The new nozzle assembly has a quick connect fitting that just snaps into the nozzle. The new nozzle protectors are glass- filled nylon and less likely to dent and easier to replace when needed. The systems opperate at 3,000 psi, which requires a high-pressure tank to fill the projectile. The Streamline Projectiles may only be used with the Streamline filler hose assembly – NOT with the original ResQmax assembly. For a conversion kit to upgrade your current system, see page 141.

  • 141. 142 WATER RESCUE | Swiftwater Harness CMC ProSeries SRT Harness UL Classified to NFPA 1983 – Class III Designed in cooperation with a large Southern California fire department’s aviation unit and USAR teams to meet their requirements for an ergonomic rescue swimmer harness, the ProSeries SRT Harness combines vertical lift capability while being worn underneath a PFD. Extensive field testing by Swiftwater Rescue Technicians, USAR Specialists, and lifeguards resulted in this unique harness design with the following features: • Y-shape shoulder straps allow freedom of movement for swimming. • Sternum extension tether positions a carabiner where it’s needed for quick, positive, dynamic hook ups. • Unique wraparound chest strap provides additional support to help keep the harness from interfering with PFD’s. • Non-padded leg loops allow greater freedom of movement for kicking, but are comfortable during hoists or short-hauls. The harness includes a front waist D-Ring for rappels and a rear waist D-Ring for travel restraint inside a helicopter. The harness is manufactured using polyester web to minimize strength loss when wet and to allow for quicker drying. Stainless steel and vinyl coated hardware reduces cor- rosion from frequent exposure to water. Weight: 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) Item # Size Waist Price 202872 Small/Medium 28-34 in.
