I am a firefighter in Northern Alberta and I have been tasked with upgrading some technical rescue equipment. I am interested in buying some new rope, both life safety and utility and I have been looking at some 13mm KMIII by New England Rope. Does anyone have any reviews for this rope? Any thoughts? What does your department use?
I trialed 5 manufacturers of ropes a few years ago to determine the best for our needs - work and rescue at heights and we found Sterling was the best for all conditions from industrial to cliffs, from wet and icy to muddy and grit covered.
You should be able to get a sample of each you are looking for, ask the manufacturer for 20' to play with, its long enough to put through some abuse to make an educated decision before spending allot of money.
We just replaced all of our rope, webbing, and cordage, and Dynamic was the supplier. I believe all of our ropes are now New England. Dynamic will also be supplying some hardware for us in the new year.
Stay safe !!
