Fast Rope Insertion & Extraction Systems provide efficient and safe methods for inserting and evacuating personnel to and from specific targets. Fast Ropes are available in several stock variations and can also be made in any custom length. We can furnish the Fast Rope with or without the FRIES (Fast Rope Insertion/ Extraction System) loops. Our ropes have a soft eye splice (loop) in the top and are whipped and heat sealed on the bottom. In addition to the loop, we can also install a steel ring in the line so that the line may be hooked to the davits that are found on certain helicopters. The eye splice is the strongest and safest method of terminating this line. It develops approximately 85% of the break strength of the line. Fast Rope strength 30,000 lbf. FRIES attachment strength 10,000 lbf.
Construction: 1.75 inch (44mm) diameter made from Low stretch nylon fibers with a 8 braid construction to reduce rope kinking and afford fast, fully controlled, and safe descents.
