Floating Rope Bags

Floating Rope Bag
Our Rope Bags have been designed to carry a variety of rope diameters. Make these hardy and durable bags a part of your rescue equipment. We have a rope bag that is suitable for you no matter what your purpose is: fire rescue, RIT (Rapid Intervention Team), water rescue, rope access, or rigging in harsh environments. The rope bags we have to offer help with the handling of rope, resulting in a more efficient way of carrying your rope. Just as no single type of rope will be appropriate for every life safety application, no one size will fit all conditions. A philosophy of “larger is better” leads to problems in handling and compatibility with other equipment, while a philosophy of “lighter is righter” may result in a rope too small. The compatibility of the components in the system you are using needs to be checked. Many conventional rope components such as pulleys and ascenders, for example, are designed for ropes with a diameter of 13mm or less.
