Slings & Lanyards

Slings & Lanyards

Where to begin.. Lets get started by dividing them up and having a closer look at each category.

Slings

A sling can be used as a quickdraw extension, to make the rope run straighter and reduce friction on wandering routes, or it can be used to set up an anchor. Slings can also be used as carry tools, you can easily clip in all your draws so you don't lose them. Slings come in different sizes and lengths. They range from 30cm slings, great to carry material, all the way to 240cm slings, often used by people working in the trees.

Quickdraw Slings

When talking about quickdraw slings, we still have to make the difference between two types of slings. 

First of all, like described above, slings can be used to extend and built your own alpine draw. To do so you usually use 8mm DYN slings. They are super light and can absorb huge forces.

 

Another form of quickdraw sling, is the shorter and stiffer version. These usually come in 3 sizes, around 11cm 17cm and 25cm depending on the brand. These are not as long nor as light as the previously mentioned slings, but they have the advantage that the climber can grab the sling much more comfortably. In case you are working a project for instance and you keep falling in the same spot, well pulling yourself back to your high point using slings is much more comfortable and easy here. 

Lanyards

Lanyards are useful to secure yourself to the belay anchor, adjusting your position, and to abseil. When you are climbing, especially big wall, a lanyard is a essential to have, it connects the harness to a safe anchor point. Lanyards are the most popular type of energy absorbers as they reduce the force in case of a fall. A lanyard energy absorber (via ferata) consists of several layers of tape that are sewn together on top of each other. If you fall, these layers stretched apart and absorb the shock by provide an extension.

The choices are endless and difficult today so contact our Customer Service or send us a mail to help you choose the right product for your needs.
