Harken Industrial™ is pleased to announce a product that will make rope access and rescue operations more efficient.
The Ninja™ foot ascender by Harken Industrial™ is designed with less spring force for the least rope drag of any available foot ascender. This means that there is a smoother and easier take off without having to counterweight the line or reach down to get the line moving through the unit. The entry fairlead maintains correct rope alignment.
Unlike other foot ascenders, The Harken Industrial Ninja™ features a dual cam system (based on Harken’s marine Cam-Matic® ball bearing cleats) that applies pressure to both sides of the rope simultaneously. This provides more thorough holding power than competitive designs that compress the rope against a flat surface from one side and must rely on aggressive teeth on their single cams. These aggressive teeth create additional drag on the line as they disengage, which can also damage the rope cover. The Ninja’s cams use transverse ribs instead of teeth so they release with less friction and prevent accidental kick-outs. It’s also the first foot ascender that can work on either foot and has fully adjustable straps.
The Harken Industrial Ninja Ascender has these advantages over its competitors:
- Prevents accidental kick-outs
- Makes workers more productive
- Adds the least drag
- Reduces fatigue
- Won’t damage your rope
- Can be used on either foot
- Fully adjustable straps
