Ice Protection - Yate Ice Scream Shock Absorber
The Yates Ice Scream Shock Absorbing Slings are designed to lessen the impact forces generated in a fall.
A 'Screamer' is a folded sling thats sewn together with stitches that are designed to rip apart under sudden shock loading. These replace the Quickdraw sling in a system. In the event of a fall, the stitches rip and the sling deploys, and the rate of the fall is slowed gradually, rather than producing a sharp impact on the system. Screamers give you added protection in climbing and rescue situations where they not only absorb energy directly because of the stitch ripping effect, but they also allow your rope to absorb more energy from the fall by increasing the time interval of the fall. The standard Screamer can effectively reduce peak loads by 3-4kN in any climbing or rescue system.
The Yates Ice Scream is especially useful in Ice climbing scenarios as they hugely reduce the loads on any suspect ice. It features an extendable loop to easily tie on to ice screws.
Reduction in system peak loading 3-4kN.
Runner Strength: 26kN.
