Here are some our most often used Petzl America products. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in any of them or other Petzl products.
This is the Petzl ASAP...the "original". We've been using these since their inception for fall protection applications and they work great! You can also use them for belay applications, even 2-person rescue belays, with the appropriate shock absorber and proper instruction.
This is the original Kootenay Carriage and was developed by Arnor Larson of British Columbia, Canada and the BCCTR. It was originally manufactured by Rock Exotica and subsequently sold to Petzl who continues to manufacture it today. It is indispensable for highline work and is also great for knot passing on the main line.
This is one of the most comfortable and feature packed harnesses on the market today...the Petzl Avao. This version includes releasable leg buckles and the Petzl Croll...a necessary extra for anyone spending considerable time on a rope. All of our customers who have these love them.
Petzl Throw Line is super lightweight and makes for a great pilot line for highlines, tree work, water rescue, etc. It is reusable and in combination with a Jet sand-bag is a great device for establishing initial lines.
The Petzl Eclipse is a complete storage and deployment system for Petzl Throw Line and Jet throw bags.
The Grillon is the perfect work positioning lanyard and has been adapted for other tasks such as short rappels, horizontal lifelines, etc. It comes in multiple sizes.
The Petzl "Triangle", or diaper seat as it is commonly called, is a simple, quick, and effective patient packaging device for pick-offs and other similar rescues. It is available in both waist only and waist/shoulder harness versions (Pitagor).
The Petzl Croll, shown above incorporated with the Avao harness, has become the standard for rope access harnesses. This can be easily adapted for use with many class 3 harnesses.
The ASAP Lock...same as the original, but with a locking function as well as no need for the carabiner.
The Petzl GriGri has been a favorite of climbers for dozens of years. It is a self-locking belay device for climbers. This is the new and improved version. We use it for rescue climbing on structural towers as well as rock walls.
The Petzl Ange carabiner represents one of lightest and smallest designs and works great for multi-point anchor systems, highline tag-line systems, and other similar applications. We keep a few dozen in our rescue cache.
The Vertex line of climbing and rope rescue helmets is available in many versions. Vented, non-vented, with and without head lamps, etc., and in many colors. It's lightweight, easily adjustable, and comfortable.
The Petzl Jet sand bag/throw bag comes in several weights and is great for hand deployment of pilot lines for highline work, water rescue, and tree work.
The L57 shock absorber, also known as the Absorbica, is used for many applications. It can be used in conjunction to the ASAP for 2-person rescue loads, the MGO Y-lanyard, etc.
The Petzl ID, or Industrial Descender, has been around for quite some time. We have been using this device for over a decade for rappelling, lowering, belaying, and even in raising systems. It is a great multi-function device. The red version shown here is NFPA certified.
This is the Petzl Freino carabiner and is designed to work with the Petzl ID. The extra clip on the side is for use in 2 person load applications and negates the need for a 2nd carabiner for additional friction.
The Maillon Rapide Tri-Link....the gold standard in screw links. Petzl imports these directly from the manufacturer in France.
Rigging Plates are a great addition to any rope rescue cache. We carry numerous sizes and use them frequently. Petzl has these in versions as large as this one, and as small as a 3-hole that fits in the palm of your hand.
The Petzl "Y Absorbica" lanyard with MGO hooks is essential for lead climbing on structural steel, towers, and even for work positioning. These are standard equipment for any cell tower worker, lineman, etc.
This the Petzl Ring (open). It has become standard on all of our litter rigs but can be used for just about anything.
The Petzl Ascension handled ascenders are one of the most efficient ways of climbing/ascending a fixed rope. It comes in left and right handed models.
