The multiANCHOR from Teufelberger is designed for use in various anchoring scenarios and can be used as trunk anchor or cambium saver. When installed as trunk anchor, multiANCHOR's main benefit is that it enables a ground-based and lowerable ascent system. Therefore, if a rescue becomes necessary, the injured or incapacitated person can be lowered by a rescuer standing on the ground. As a cambium saver the multiANCHOR provides the ability to rig loads on multiple potentially unreliable limbs for added security.
An anchor construction installed up in the tree can be configured in two possible ways:
a) As Y anchor on 2 limbs, the anchor point centering itself via the ring. Here, in the case of potential unreliable anchor points, the load is applied to 2 limbs;
b) As Y anchor with 2 redundantly secured anchor points. This configuration guarantees the safety of a second anchor point in the event that a limb breaks.
For putting together the above systems, the following extra items are needed:
- Trunk anchor – Sirius (or similar) prusik Loop
- Compensating anchor – ringLOOP 26mm
- Redundant anchor – 2 x ringLOOP 34mm, 1 x ringLOOP 26mm
TEUFELBERGER's multiANCHOR is certified to EN 795 B and is ANSI Z133.1-2006 compliant. In the as-manufactured state, the breaking force is 29kN (straight line pull).
