  3. 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. 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.

  5. 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. 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. 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. One size fits most personnel. Weight: 1 lb. 12 oz. (794 g).Item #202910 $115.00 KEYWORD SEARCH TABLE OF CONTENTS INDEX
