Function: Shock absorbing sling designed to reduce peak loads in any climbing system.
A Multi-functional energy absorbing device. Screamers will provide added protection for climbers. Screamers not only absorb energy directly because of the stitch ripping effect they also allow your rope to absorb more energy from the fall by increasing the time interval of the fall.
The Zipper Screamer is designed for long falls with high fall factors. These types of falls occur usually within the first two or three protection placements that are run out.
Ice climbing is a good example where the Zipper is exceptionally effective when used on the first few placements. The ZIPPER can effectively reduce peak loads by 6-8kn in any climbing system.
