Thread: Rescue Rope?

I need some information on lighted rescue line... If anyone has information on this type of line PLEASE e-mail me. The item that I am looking for was in a picture in Firehouse Magazine. It was in the March or April addition in a story about RIT's.

Lighted rescue rope? Bluewater rope makes a 1/2" rope with a reflective tracer (it's pretty cool at night). I believe it's called "Vis-mat" rope. Other than that I'm not sure.

The rope TekRsQ mentioned can be found on Pigeon Mountain's site: www.pmirope.com .
Check the price -- it's not cheap.
A night picture can be seen at www.versales.com ; then surf into the rope section.
There are some companies that make externally powered, lighted, ropes, but I don't know of any that are rated for strength or life safety purposes.

Cool, saw the rope you mentioned, quite impressive to see!
I don't think it would be worth the price.
Like every thing else in safety and fire, they really make it expensive.

Try going to rescuenet.com They can answer any of your rope questions for you. They are very knowledgable.

American Safety and Rescue sells a rope that has a reflective tracer added to the sheath. We use this rope for night ops. It sells for $1.00/ft. Judging by the picture on Versales web page, the ASR rope is less visible, but it works for us.
