Improved! As one of the most versatile tools in rope rescue, the CMC AZTEK ProSeries System reflects our philosophy of keeping rigging equipment simple, efficient, light, compact, and multi-purpose. Originally developed by Reed Thorne of Arizona-based Ropes That Rescue, the AZTEK (Arizona Technician’s Edge Kit) is used worldwide and offers more than 100 rigging solutions in a single bag. The CMC AZTEK ProSeries System is made in USA of US and foreign components.
This system now includes an updated AZTEK ProSeries Pack that has improved fabric durability, new reflective piping, and a fresh OD Green color. The pack is feature rich with 1000D nylon/Tarpaulin construction for abrasion resistance, mesh panel for ventilation and drying, Garage Pockets™ to protect cord, double-zippered top compartments, and tension lock buckles for carrying on the waist or thigh. Note: The pack is no longer available in Coyote color.
The CMC AZTEK ProSeries System is the first AZTEK system to be UL Classified to NFPA 1983 (2017 ED) – General Use – Manufactured System. The system is thoughtfully designed to support rescue teams and each component has been tested and proven to work efficiently in a multitude of lab and field scenarios. Everything comes pre-rigged and fully assembled for immediate deployment.
The set-of-fours includes 15.2 m (50 ft) of 8 mm AZTEK ProSeries Cord, which is CMC’s high-performance 100% nylon blend. These can extend to 3.6 m (12 ft) while providing a 4:1 or 5:1 mechanical advantage with a Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) of 38 kN (8,542 lbf).
For a personal edge travel-restrict with nearly 15.2 m (50 ft) of adjustable travel, attach the carabiner of the personal end of the system to an appropriate anchor and restrict edge travel using the integrated Purcell connected to your harness. The sleeved web edge-pro helps protect the cord around anchors with abrasive surfaces.
