For ascent where only one rope is used. This is the most basic and widely used method of using rope for ascents.
Separate ropes are anchored in alternating belaying points. This system reduces the risk of rope breakage by falling rocks and provides maximum protection in alpine conditions or on tough climbs.
The same ropes are always used in pairs, secured at common belaying points. Twin ropes guarantee a high level of safety, especially for classic alpine climbing.
Improved basic finishing of dynamic ropes. The new technological process enables the application of impregnation agents early in the standard finishing of the ropes.
In addition to the standard finishing against water and abrasion, the sheath of the entire product is treated with the TENDON NANOTECHNOLOGY surface finish. Using the new progressive method of surface finishing called NANOTECHNOLOGY, TEFLON® Eco in the form of very small particles is applied to the rope sheath and very effectively prevents penetration of water, dust and other particles into the rope sheath which means that the water resistance and the abrasion resistance of the ropes are increased.
The maximum level of protection of ropes with high water resistance and abrasion resistance. Using the new progressive method called NANOTECHNOLOGY, TEFLON® Eco in form of very small particles is applied to the rope sheath as well as the rope core and forms an almost impermeable protective layer against water and dust that could damage the sheath or the core. COMPLETE SHIELD is a new impregnation which extends the general lifespan of TENDON ropes significantly.
Tendon electronic note system (TeNOTE)
Rope marking system by means of a microchip.
SBS – Simple Braiding System
SBS gives the rope better properties. Every fibre of the sheath is guided individually, not in a pair as usual. The sheath is more resistant against breakage, but on the other hand it is smoother.
Our own special technology has been used for the ends of the rope. In a length of 15 mm, the core strand and sheath are connected into one unit.
Midpoint of rope
At half of the length, the rope is visibly marked by coloured band, which does not affect the core structure and its mechanical properties. Lengths 30 - 80 m only.
A new, clearly identifiable change of rope pattern in the middle. Bicolour brings comfort in rope handling and is advantageous especially for descending. The change of pattern is practical also when climbing with half ropes and contributes to improvement of ropework as well as to safety in general.
CE – Symbol of compliance
The CE symbol on a product declares that the product is in compliance with all applicable regulations and has undergone all appropriate compliance evaluation procedures. The number after the CE symbol (e.g. 1019) indicates relevant accredited laboratory.
Products marked with this symbol meet UIAA requirements.The UIAA is the International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation.
Rope with a zero sheath slippage is made with utilization of the unique patented technology named Secure. Thanks to the unique sandwichtype construction of braided layers and the use of specially finished fibres, the rope is safe even in case of a heavily damaged sheath.
New, revolutionary conception of the overall administration and registration of ropes which, thanks to NFC technology, offers unthought-of possibilities and brings user comfort to a hitherto unrecognized level. With a PC and a mobile phone you obtain a quick, effective and smart tool for examination and maintenance of your ropes.
This European norm establishes safety requirements and testing procedures for static ropes at European Union accredited laboratories. Products labeled with the symbol of this European norm satisfy the given safety requirements.
This European norm establishes safety requirements and testing procedures for dynamic climbing ropes at European Union accredited laboratories. Products labelled with the symbol of this European norm satisfy the given safety requirements.
These ropes meet the life safety rope requirements of NFPA 1983, standard on fire service life safety rope and equipment for emergency services, 2006 edition.
