All new from AMKUS- Extended Reach Tips (Patent Pending) for the AMK-24 Spreader provide an additional 8 inches of spread. The unique construction of these tips eliminates loss of power while providing extended reach and the push button pins eliminate losing pins in the field.
AMKUS Rescue Systems (Downers Grove, IL USA) is proud to introduce their NEW ROPE RESCUE SYSTEM. The advanced design deploys in under two minutes, eliminating pulley systems and load releasing hitches while greatly reducing the number of rescuers needed topside from 8-10 to just two! It is easy to use, requiring less training than traditional rope rescue methods thanks to the incredibly simple design. Unlike other belaying devices, THE AMKUS ROPE RESCUE SYSTEM passes knots with ease.
The AMKUS ROPE RESCUE SYSTEM is designed to improve the safety of both rescuer and victim in dangerous high angle rescue operations with a 1,000 lb. working capacity with a 10:1 safety margin and an instant stop / zero shock loading system. It features a precise control which allows the load to be raised or lowered by a fraction of an inch at a time for critical positioning. It also creates a more organized incident scene with fewer elements to contend with and fewer technicians to coordinate.
AMKUS also manufactures a complete line of high performance hydraulic rescue tools and extrication equipment including: spreaders, cutters, combination tools, rams and power units.
