INSTRUCTION DYNAMIC ROPES

WARNING: TRAINING ESSENTIAL

Before using this product, you must read and understand all operating instructions.

WARNING

Climbing and mountaineering are dangerous activities. By using this product, you assume responsibility for your own safety and actions, as well as the risks and consequences associated with its use.

ADVICE

This product is a dynamic rope for climbing and mountaineering. This product has been designed for use with personal protective equipment against falls from a height that complies with current standards. Only persons trained and competent in mountaineering and climbing techniques, or under the direct and constant visual supervision of persons trained and competent in these techniques are authorized to use this equipment. Do not use this equipment without prior training or if you are in any doubt. You are also responsible for keeping up to date with any updates to your equipment. Ensure that the components of the belay system are compatible with each other, and that none of the components of the belay chain affect the operation and safety functions of any other component. The rope is personal equipment. It may suffer unseen damage in your absence. For better product follow-up, and when the rope is used by a group, we advise you to appoint a user or a person responsible for each product. We also advise you to be particularly vigilant when using the rope for the first time, as a new rope can be surprisingly slippery. The rope is 100% PA6, unless Covershield technology is mentioned on the packaging. Rope name + Covershield: The rope contains UHMWPE. Please note that ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has a low melting point of 140°C and a low coefficient of friction. 

ADVICE ON ACTIVITIES

- Before and during use, consider the measures to be taken for safe and efficient rescue. - Check carabiners and other equipment for burrs and/or damage. - The figure-of-eight knot is recommended for roping climbers together. - Check rope length before abseiling or top-roping. To be on the safe side, tie a knot at the end of the rope. - Use a carabiner or quick link for abseiling and top-roping. Do not pass the rope around a branch, over a ring, through the eye of a piton or directly through a plate. - Avoid rapid descents when abseiling or top roping, as they accelerate wear and can burn the rope. The maximum permissible operating temperature is 80°C for short periods. - The rope must not come into contact with corrosive and aggressive materials or chemical agents (acids, oils, petrol) which can destroy the fibers without being visible. - Do not walk on your rope. - Beware of shrinkage: whatever the construction of the rope, its use leads in varying proportions to a reduction in its initial length.

MOUNTAIN

The rope must be protected from sharp edges and falling rocks, which can cut the threads. If the rope has been wet, it loses its strength and is much more sensitive to abrasion.

CLIMBING

Overlapping two ropes in a carabiner or connector can cause it to break. - A rope bag protects your rope from dust, reduces the risk of twisting and makes it easier to transport. Getting into the habit of tying the end of the rope inside the rope bag is an added safety feature when top roping.

TRACEABILITY

UNI / Unique Identification Number : enables the production chain to be traced and all rope characteristics to be identified. All ropes are delivered with instructions for use, a product label and end labels containing regulatory information. For their own safety, or in the case of a rope cut into several lengths, it is the user’s responsibility to ensure that the rope end markings are present at each end.

INSPECTION

Before and after each outing, check the general condition of the rope both visually and by hand. Replace the rope as soon as possible after a major fall or as soon as deterioration appears. Care and storage Service life depends on frequency and type of use. Mechanical stress, friction, UV rays and humidity cause the rope to age and wear. The rope can suffer irreparable damage from the very first use. Wash in clear, cold water (soap and machine wash possible, but no detergent). Store in the shade, away from humidity, frost, UV rays and any source of heat likely to degrade the rope’s properties. If the rope is damp, do not store it in an airtight room or rope bag. For proper drying, the rope should be unfolded and hung in a shaded, ventilated area, away from frost and UV rays.

LIFESPAN

Total life corresponds to the storage time before first use, plus the use-by period. It is limited to a maximum of 13 years from the date of manufacture. The maximum recommended service life from first use is : - 10 years for occasional use (up to 10 uses/year) - 3 years for regular use (up to 50 uses/year) - 1 year for intensive use (more than 50 uses/year) This service life must be reduced if the total service life reaches 13 years. This service life may be reduced to a single use if the product has been dropped, overloaded, jammed or twisted, used intensively or subjected to heavy stress (e.g. after a fall, exposure to hazardous chemicals, extreme temperatures, etc.). As soon as your product no longer meets the inspection requirements described in the INSPECTION section, it must be disposed of. If in doubt about the condition of the product, have it checked by a competent, trained person, or dispose of it. The EU declaration of conformity of your product is accessible on the web page of the relevant rope on the www. supportdecathlon.com website.
