Life safety rope is available in such a variety of diameters, materials, and constructions… how do you choose what’s right for you? This presentation will cover some of the finer points of rope selection, including test methods, interpretation of data, and both objective and subjective considerations in choosing the best rope for your application. Rope is not a commodity, and details do make a difference. By the end of this webinar you will have a better grasp on analyzing specifications and product labels to help you choose the best product for your needs. Loui McCurley, you presenter for this webinar, offers perspective gained from personal experience in rescue, fall protection, rope access, and recreational climbing, as well as testing and evaluating mechanisms of failure of life safety rope.
