Our Product Development Department has worked hard to provide a durable Sewn 8mm prusik for use in rescue systems. Our heavy duty stitching uses thread that is 150% thicker/stronger than other brands. Since not all PMPs are equally sized, we have created 2 sizes of Short Prusiks to work with the Long Prusik. The stitches are covered with a transparent shrink tube covering that binds the cord together to provide an adjustable length “eye”.
Testing shows that a single RescueTECH Sewn Prusik pulled on RescueTECHs ACCESS 1/2" Lifeline starts "clutching/slipping at a strength of 3,000 lbf*. When pulled end-to-end the single loop strength exceeds 4,500 lbs. Marked with durable labeling to help product identification.
* Results may vary depending upon brand and condition/age of the main line
