New Rope

Postby DeltaWhiskey » Wed Feb 12, 2014 10:36 pm

Hello brothers/sisters,
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?

You may also want to check this out from a small Ontario company.

Rescue Rope

Most of our rope is CMC static line.

We also have some New England KMIII as well.

No issues with either brand of rope.

Stay safe !!

Ropes

Postby ThomasDeCew » Fri Feb 20, 2015 12:19 pm

The biggest player in the Rope Access and Rescue world would be Sterling Ropes.
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.

New England rope and cordage is very good, among the best. x2 on Dynamic out of Coquitlam, they are a good supplier and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to equipment.

Dynamic Rescue Systems for Training and Ropes

Postby LTPVFD » Fri Dec 25, 2015 3:12 pm

We used Dynamic Rescue Systems to train a bunch of our members in low slope, confined space, and high angle last year. Very good training and very knowledgeable instructors.

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 !!
