What is there to advance when it comes to friction savers with rings?
choking installation possible (permanent)
Length – 60cm and 90cm
Well, that is exactly what Hubert Kowalewski succeeded in: By introducing the tube shaped ring principle with the ROPEGUIDE 2010 for the first time he cut down on a lot of weight (about 50 per cent). He also eliminated the disadvantages of loop (furryness) and rope (highly concentrated load on cambium) plus the intense abrasion of a ring chafing and rubbing against the bark with the new LIGHTANCHOR while combining masterly the advantages of both systems (abrasion-resistance and wide contact surface/24 mm).
Each end is clasped by an eye enclosing a specially manufactured grooved ring, The load is evenly distributed onto the ring and the rope is protected by the groove (no chafing at bark). This way not only weight is reduced but also tensile strength heightened (>25 kN). Resulting in doubled safety because the climbing rope not only runs through the ring but also indirectly through the spliced eye.
