Pigeon Mountain Industries new PMI® Extreme Pro™ Static Rope
PRLog - Jul. 10, 2014 - LAFAYETTE, Ga. -- Introducing the new PMI® Extreme Pro™ static rope! If you perform rescues or work at height, PMI’s new kernmantle rope delivers extraordinary performance, strength and reliability. PMI® Extreme Pro™ is a revolutionary rope that uses Unicore® technology to bond the sheath and core together resulting in nearly zero slippage between them, even if the sheath is damaged. PMI® Extreme Pro™ has a polyester sheath and a nylon core that are bonded together to provide the ideal characteristics to handle even a shock load from a toothed device such as a handled or chest ascender. In traditional kernmantle static ropes, when the sheath is damaged, it can completely fail and slip right off of the core of the rope. PMI® Extreme Pro™ allows one to ascend or descend around a damaged section of the sheath without worrying about the sheath slipping down the core of the rope. PMI® Extreme Pro™ allows workers to have greater confidence in their rope with a higher margin of safety and that’s what counts the most in considering the quality of rope you choose to use.
Founded in LaFayette, GA in 1976, PMI manufactures life safety rope and related gear. We manufacture our rope and many other products in our facility in LaFayette, GA. Our ropes and gear are used by firefighters, first responders, rescue teams, rope technicians, cavers, and climbers worldwide.
