Notes:
DIAMETER - measured while weight hangs from rope, affected by weave as well as amount of material
UIAA TYPE (click here for graphic info)
TWIN ROPES OO - used in pairs, both Ropes must be clipped to each protection point;
HALF ROPES 1/2 - used in pairs, each rope is clipped singly to alternating (every other) protection point;
SINGLE ROPES 1 - used singly, the rope is clipped to each protection point.
UIAA FALLS (click here for graphic info) - general measure of overall durability in a "worst case" scenario with 1.77 fall factor- see test diagram. Comparable only within same UIAA Type as tests are preformed with either 50 kg (half ropes - 5 fall min.) or 80 kg mass (single ropes 5 fall min, and twin rope systems - 12 fall min).
IMPACT FORCE - the maximum force generated during a test fall, lower force = softer "catch" 12kN max for Single and Twin Rope Systems; 8 kN max for Half Ropes
DYNAMIC ELONGATION - the % rope stretch occurring during 1st Test Fall. 40% max.
STATIC ELONGATION - the % of rope stretch with 80 kg (176 lbs) simulating "climber" load. Must be less than 10% for Single and Twin Rope Systems and less than 20% for Half Ropes.
SHEATH SLIPPAGE - Test simulates descender wear - 12-20mm allowed depending on Type.
WEIGHT PER METER - a better measure than Diameter with which to compare different models .Heavier ropes have more material and generally have better longevity,
* BEST USE (in ranking order) A = Alpine Rock & Ice; I = Waterfall Ice; M = Mixed Rock & Ice, S = Sport Climbing (falling, hanging, lowering); T = Trad Rock (multi-pitch, placing protection); TR = Top Roping, W = Big Walls & Aid Climbing
BOBBINS: low number = generally better abrasion resistance; higher number - generally better dynamic performance
WEIGHT of SHEATH: lower % = greater flexibility & smoother running; higher % = increased durability and slightly stiffer running.
BICOLOR or BI-PATTERN sheath provides permanent identification of the mid point; TRIOSAFE available in certain Mammut models permanently marks middle and also provides 5 meter warning of an approaching rope end.
OTHER LENGTHS: call for 50M prices, special lengths up to 200M (660 ft) and current colors.
