Resistance to a factor 1,77 fall over an edge of radius 0.75mm
All Beal dynamic rope sheaths are waterproof treated with Dry Cover.
Beal Compact Process: Beal's exclusive weaving process renders core and sheath as one, ensuring a perfect equilibrium in the rope and giving it these unique attributes:
Lowers the impact force
Increases the number of falls
Allows the rope to conserve its dynamic properties in use
Eliminates sheath slippage in normal conditions of use
Each Beal rope includes an individual identification number
Easy snow routes, glacier travel, ski−touring. A snow route is called easy if it has no difficult passages such as the crossing of a bergschrund, requiring a belay. It will be possible to progress with any type of dynamic rope:
One strand of single rope.
One strand of double rope.
One strand of twin rope.
The roping of the party is practised in different ways. BEAL's choice is to use one strand of twin rope. In order to make the dynamic results for this rope more realistic BEAL has decided to indicate the performance more closely related to this use than a twin rope tested on two strands. That is with a fall limited to factor 0.8, but with 80kg on one strand, and the impact force measured with the same parameters. Even though we forbid the use of Rando rope on one strand for climbing and mountaineering, these two activities are nevertheless practicable if you use 2 strands of Rando rope.
