Heightec Pulsar Handled Ascender - D40

Rope Access handled ascender, incorporating X-Cam.

  • Right handed, handled ascender rope access device.
  • When tested on new Tectra 11 mm low stretch rope, these handled ascenders were found to be 25% stronger than their most popular sharp toothed competitor, with average breaking loads up to 675 kg for X-cams versus 535 kg for the established design.
  • However, the greatest increase in performance is exhibited if the ascender continues to be loaded after the sheath of the rope has ruptured.
  • In this situation, X-Cams will hold up to 200 kg on the broken sheath and rope cores. Established toothed designs supported only around 30 kg in heightec tests – nowhere near enough to support a person.
  • heightec X-Cam ascenders therefore significantly reduce the possibility of complete system failure by exerting a considerable hold on a rope after the sheath has broken.
  • X-Cam has a more advanced tooth design than traditional cams and is more suitable for industrial applications as it does not pluck the rope, so reducing rate of rope wear.
  • It maintains a high degree of grip – even on old or dirty rope.
  • The handle design is ergonomically positioned and profiled for optimal pulling and greater comfort to the user.
  • Contains high strength alloy with stainless steel friction surfaces.
  • Two attachment points allow cowstail and footloop to be connected separately which eliminates the need to open a loaded karabiner.

X-Cam design gives increased performance over traditional sharp tooth design
