The edge restraint/travel restrict end of the system allows for nearly 15 metres of travel, accomplished via an integrated Purcell prusik. A sleeved web edge protector helps protect the cord around anchors & over edges.For serious rescue and rope access professionals who demand the utmost in performance from their gear, the CMC AZTEK ProSeries System offers a raft of advantages over the standard AZTEK Elite.
