Marlow launches FRR at DSEI 2017

Innovators in the field of rope technology, Marlow Ropes Ltd designed and developed the original Fast Rope in conjunction with the British Special Forces. These ropes are now in use by traditional Special Forces and SWAT teams across the globe.

Launching at DSEI 2017, Marlow are delighted to introduce the Fast Rope Rack (FRR) a lightweight stainless steel device to be used in conjunction with 40mm fast rope and to aid the rapid insertion of units.  This innovative British-made device is light (1.83kg), quick and easy to install and Ideal for the insertion of non-Fast Rope qualified personnel including Medics, Interpreters, Guides and Bomb Disposal Specialists.  It also offers a perfect solution when descending with a dog.  The FRR has various fitting options to help with the deployment of equipment considered too heavy for insertion in normal Fast Roping conditions.

The unique construction of the Marlow Fast Rope allows comfortable control throughout the descent and makes it easier to slow down and break. The suppleness of the material means that the rope is not hard on the hands as less force is required than with other ropes. Oil and general spillage do not affect the speed of descent as Marlow Fast Ropes absorb liquids.
