The Maillon Rapide Delta's triangular shape makes it ideal for three way loading situations when rigging or for connecting chest harnesses to sit harnesses. We recommend the 10 and 12mm options for use with harnesses.
Maillon Rapide quick link connectors have a number of uses in caving, climbing and industrial access. Some are PPE rated and they are available in a number of different shapes to accommodate different loading stresses. Generally they are much stronger than karabiners of similar bar dimensions, but not as quick to operate.
The Maillon Rapide Square can be used as a lightweight connection for harnesses or risers, where the minimum weight is paramount.
The Maillon Rapide Long Opening is a long oval shaped Maillon Rapide, the gate being longer than the standard. Available in galvanised or stainless steel, and in a number of different sizes (see drop down menu). These are ideal for rigging ropes in any situation where they will not be in view during use as they are much less likely than a karabiner to open accidentally. The downside is that they are slightly slower to use than a screw gate karabiner.
The Maillon Rapide Pear are ideal for rigging ropes in any situation where they will not be in view during use as they are much less likely than a karabiner to open accidentally. The downside is that they are slightly slower to use than a screw gate karabiner. The pear shape gives the rope room to run over the wider end. Available in galvanised or stainless steel, and in a number of different sizes (see drop down menu).
The Maillon Rapide Standard was developed on the principle of a chain link fitted with manual nut opening. This shape reflects the spirit of Maillon Rapide quick links connectors.
The Semi circular or half moon Maillon Rapide is ideal for securing caving harnesses, it is commonly used for the junction of 2 connecting points on a harness. Screw links are a lot more secure than karabiners so are essential if there's a possibility that the connector may be cross-loaded.
The Beal Flat Link has been designed to go with the Hold Up harness and is a fully rated karabiner, making it ideal for full body harnesses. The flat surfaces ensure an even load distribution on webbing.
When you need a reliable connection but need to be able to affect an immediate release this is the karabiner for you. Ideal for helicopter and across river rescues. Double button locking with multiple safety mechanism and a breaking strength of 40kN. Paragliders are able to separate the pilot from his/her glider when using a dirigible rescue system.
