Marlow Ropes introduces FRR

Posted 12 October 2017 · Add Comment

Marlow Ropes are introducing the Fast Rope Rack (FRR), a lightweight stainless steel device to be used in conjunction with 40mm fast rope and to aid the rapid insertion of units.



This innovative British-made device is light (1.83kg), quick and easy to install and Ideal for the insertion of non-Fast Rope qualified personnel including Medics, Interpreters, Guides and Bomb Disposal Specialists. It also offers a perfect solution when descending with a dog. 

The FRR has various fitting options to help with the deployment of equipment considered too heavy for insertion in normal Fast Roping conditions.

The unique construction of the Marlow Fast Rope allows comfortable control throughout the descent and makes it easier to slow down and break. The suppleness of the material means that the rope is not hard on the hands as less force is required than with other ropes. Oil and general spillage do not affect the speed of descent as Marlow Fast Ropes absorb liquids.

The FRR will be on display at Milipol Paris this November, in addition to the Marlow Fast Ropes and other insertion and extraction systems in the range. Other additions include a new and improved Fast Rope bag, a Fast Rope DLT cover, alongside its range of Fast Roping gloves and hardware.
 
Marlow Ropes' reputation for quality and technical innovation continues and the Company is expanding into international markets, operating globally with offices in the UK & US and produce high quality, bespoke-made rope products and accessories for the Leisure Marine, Defence, Rope Access, Industrial, Arboriculture and Event industries.

The company have been manufacturing rope on the same premises in Hailsham (East-Sussex) for over 200 years. 
 
Innovators in the field of rope technology, Marlow Ropes Ltd designed and developed the original Fast Rope in conjunction with the British Special Forces. These ropes are now in use by traditional Special Forces and SWAT teams across the globe.
