Lower impact force and higher number of falls held, so better security.
The more the impact force is lowered:
- The more your fall is cushioned.
- The more you protect your anchor point (particularly important if it is questionable).
- The easier it is for your second to hold you.
Raised number of falls
Although the UIAA requires a minimum resistance to 5 falls at factor 1,77, BEAL greatly exceeds the requirements of the standards and goes well beyond this number of falls.
Low impact force
Apart from Wall Master V, with very specific properties, all the single ropes have a maximum impact force of around 7 kN, and the double ropes around 5 kN. But we go much further, because at the end of the series of successive test falls, our ropes still do not exceed the limit which is only required for the first fall! When you consider that rope loses some of its dynamic qualities with each fall, this is an incredible performance, guaranteed only by BEAL!
An astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope?s suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, a frequent occurrence in the mountains, it slides and gathers over some metres.It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether ascending or whether ascending or descending.
An infrared treatment whichstabilises the sheath fibersand therefore makes yarns more homogeneous.
The result is a more compact, better handling rope
