High Loading

Originally developed by Reed Thorne of Arizona-based Ropes That Rescue, the AZTEK (Arizona Technician’s Edge Kit) is used globally and offers more than 100 rigging solutions in a bag. As one of the most versatile tools used in rope rescue, the system reflects the philosophy of keeping rigging equipment simple, efficient, non-specialized, light and small.
The design of the CMC AZTEK ProSeries® LT System (Load Tender) leaves no detail ignored. The more compact ‘LT’ version of the AZTEK offers 28 feet of 8 mm AZTEK ProSeries® Cord that can extend the set-of-fours up to 6 feet, providing a 4:1 or 5:1 mechanical advantage with a minimum breaking strength (MBS) of 38 kN (8,542 lbf). The LT system includes (2) ProTech™ Aluminum Auto-Lock Carabiners w/ removable keeper pin – 29 kN (6,519 lbf) for attaching to the swivel ends. (Note: Included carabiners must be installed by the user and are UL Classified to NFPA 1983 – Technical Use)
USES: Whether using the set-of-fours (SOFs) as a quick 4:1 or 5:1 M/A for a multitude of rigging applications, or for pick-off rescues, the versatile AZTEK ProSeries LT System gives rescuers and rope access technicians endless rigging solutions in a bag, including:
Quickly adjusts litter attendant position, low/high
High-angle attendant tether
High-angle litter scoops
Solo pick-off

The compact Escape Artist™ Lumbar System equips you with all the efficient tools you need for a successful emergency egress, and allows hands-free operation to ensure a safe edge transition and controllable descent.
Our Lumbar Bag’s unique design efficiently organizes the Escape Artist™ and rope/web separately, with the FlashLite™ Hook readily deployable from its quick-draw style pouch. The narrow bag profile provides comfortable, evenly-balanced weight distribution while nesting below the SCBA. The bag attaches securely to an escape belt or harness with four easy-open, height-adjustable attachments. The durable rip-stop Nomex® fabric offers heat, flame, abrasion, and water resistance and the system is reversible for right- or left-side carry, with hi-viz reflective strips on both sides. The integrated flame- and temperature-resistant components include our patented FlashLite™ Hook escape anchor, 50 feet of 100% Technora ProSeries Escape Line (7.5 mm, 32 kN / 7,194 lbf) or Web (11 mm, 27 kN / 6,070 lbf), and a Single-Brake Escape Artist, completely assembled and ready for rapid, reliable deployment.

Delivering outstanding strength with minimal weight (just 5.7 ounces!), the innovative CMC FlashLite™ Hook (15 kN / 3,372 lbf) escape anchor is the lightest Escape Use-certified model available. The hook’s ergonomic design eliminates excess bulk, and its compact .375” width provides the slimmest profile possible.
Web vs. Rope Escape Systems
Our 100% Technora Fire Escape Web (11 mm) greatly reduces the profile size and weight of the escape system, making it the optimal lightweight and most compact escape solution available
