English Reeve — Control Side & Carriage System | Horizontal Rigging

Written By: Lance Piatt

English Reeve When we talk about reeving systems for highlines, we are referring to the rigging component that allows us to lower from and raise to the carriage system of the highline. This is our rope elevator so to speak. The English Reeve, like it’s brother the Norwegian Reeve, is a 6:1 compound mechanical advantage. However, with the English Reeve it runs the full length of the highline system, and required a much longer rope to accomplish this, whereas the Norwegian Reeve terminates at the Carriage and requires much less rope. On the positive side, once built, the English requires less rope management . For additional detailed information on the Norwegian and English Reeves contact Rescue Response Gear about our highline rigging courses. www.rescueresponse.com Sterling Rope is the Official Rope of Rescue Response Gear’s The Rigging Lab. The Lab uses Sterling’s 11mm HTP Static for many of our rigging systems.

Ideal for high traffic expeditions, mountain rescue, military, industrial rope access, and swift-water rescue uses.
