Recommended Rope Systems ~ Two Tension Rope System (TTRS) Raise and Lower

Two-Tensioned Rope System – Raise

A Two-Tensioned Rope System shares the load between two ropes, both under tension.
Each system is capable of functioning as both mainline or back-up to the other line.

System

System Benefits Maestro
• load is distributed between two systems, reducing force concentration on any one component
• in the event of a line failure, the amount of load
transferred to the remaining line is approximately
half of the total load, thus minimizing the drop
distance and arresting force
• rigging is the same for both sides of the system,
reducing the complexity of training and
operations
• AUTO-LOCK function automatically locks the
rope when the handle is not in use
• integrated progress-capture pulley for increased
hauling efficiency
• audible clicking sound during haul mode
indicates that rope is in motion
