The Petzl Jag System Has Become A Go To Tool For At Height Workers and Rescuers

Written By: Lance Piatt

As Torrey and I travel around the country filming and managing a very large amount of footage, it has become very apparent to me that one product has become, what I would call… an “emerging product”.  While in days past, the AZTEK was (and still is to some degree) the work horse for rigging systems… the market has embraced other others as well such as The ISC HaulerBiner Kit.  However the Petzl Jag System has for sure made huge inroads into the market space.

Trends being what they are, tend to over emphasize and over value products… it is very clear that moving to bagged systems is here to stay.  However, not all systems (bagged or otherwise) are equal. So while, as an example, the AZTEK is a great product, it isn’t nearly as compact as the HaulerBiner or the Jag System.  However, neither the HaulerBiner nor the Jag System was created to do heavy heavy lift… However, then can.  It is important to note and understand that small gear can do tremendous work… you simply have to understand THE WHY… VECTOR AND MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE.

JAG SYSTEM is a haul kit for pickoffs, making a releasable anchor, or tensioning a system, thanks to its 4:1 mechanical advantage and excellent efficiency (sheaves with sealed ball bearings). The collapsed kit is very compact, making usage possible even if the distance to the anchor is very short. The JAG SYSTEM haul kit is quick and easy to deploy: it is ready to use thanks to the flexible cover that prevents any risk of tangling. The haul end is color coded for instant identification.

Tower rescues have become so prevalent, that when the NFPA published the latest version of the 1670 standard, it included Tower Rescue Awareness, Operations, and Technician level requirements. Still, the big question for all of us who work in high angle rescue is, “how many departments and rescue teams across the country are truly trained and equipped to carry out these demanding types of rescues?” The first thing we need to define when talking about tower rescue is the tower itself. What exactly is a tower and what is tower rescue?
