Friction Savers

Friction Savers
  • Timbersaws Aluminium Ring Friction Savers

    Friction savers reduce premature wear on your climbing line, and eliminates damage to tree limbs caused by excess friction. Friction savers are "load rated", offering superior insurance for your safety. The use of a friction saver minimises friction when working from different positions in the tree, and can be wrapped around a stem for use as a false crotch where no natural crotch exists. By using your throw line and throw ball, the friction saver can quickly be placed in the crotch of a tree and climbing line installed, all from standing on the ground. To remove it either fit your retrieval ball towards the end of the climbing line or tie a figure eight knot then pull on your line. The retrieval ball or figure eight knot will pass through the large ring but not the small ring bringing your friction saver and climbing line to the ground.

  • pulleySAVER


    Cambium saver with DMM pulley

    The pulleySAVER from TEUFELBERGER is an enhanced/improved version of its predecessor with some well-known, but also a number of new features:

    • Small Pinto pulley instead of the big one - lightweight, easier to uninstall from the ground
    • Large Pinto pulley is available as a replacement part - can be exchanged as desired
    • Sirius Loop instead of Ocean Polyester Loop - longer service life due to the material
    • DMM retrieval cone: optimized in technology and appearance; proven DMM quality
    • Additional type of use through OD Loop 7mm with thimble and equaLIZA

    The climbing rope moves on the PINTO pulley with the usual ease. The resilient eye which facilitates the retrieval of the pulleySAVER will return to its original position even after thousands of cycles. Of course, the pulleySAVER comes with TEUFELBERGER's patented [slaice]® rope end termination.

    Attachment as an anchor point on a tree is possible in six different configurations, depending on the intended type of use: as a swinging element in a double leg configuration, as a choke sling, wrapped in a double leg configuration, constricted in a double leg configuration, in a double leg configuration using the Prusik Loop with thimble, and as a compensating anchor in combination with the equaLIZA.

    The Ocean Dyneema® Loop T, the Sirius 10mm Pinto Loop and the Retrieval Cone S are available as separate replacement parts for the pulleySAVER. Moreover, the pulleySAVER can be enhanced by the equaLIZA, the Sirius 10mm Pinto Rig Loop and the Retrieval Cone L.

    WARNING!
    Make sure that the Pinto pulley and the thimble on the Prusik loop do not touch but a distance is kept e.g. when climbing on the same level as your anchor point is. Otherwise the thimble may be torn into the pulley and damage it.

  • fImblSAVER introduces with several new technological features and completes TEUFELBERGER's product portfolio for cambium savers. The two stainless steel thimbles [fImbl] of fImblSAVER ensure that the climbing rope will be moving smoothly during work in the canopy. The friction values are only slightly higher that those experienced with pulleySAVER. The 10cm long and tapering longitudinal seam makes pulling this cambium saver off easy. Because it is also easy to install from the ground, fImblSAVER closes the gap between multiSAVER and pulleySAVER.

  • Sirius multiSLING is regarded as the number one multipurpose tool for professional arborists. It can be used as an anchor sling and friction hitch cord, in single leg or choked configurations. In combination with a DMM Revolver karabiner, multiSLING serves as a good cambium saver. multiSLING is one of the few products on the market that has been certified to three standards (EN 795 B, EN 566, and EN 354). Such is the durability of Sirius multiSLING that, after arresting a fall, it may be safely retained in service for the duration of an ongoing rescue (tested and confirmed by TÜV).
