4 Bar U-Rack

U-Racks are used in the opposite orientation as J-Racks in that the rack is clipped to the harness or anchor at the bend area of the frame with the “legs” always pointing away from the user. The U-Rack does not facilitate friction variation by dropping or adding bars as the J-Rack does and the U-Rack should never be used with less than 4 bars. The benefit of the SMC designed 4 bar U-Rack is having the two opposed tied-off bars. This provides the opportunity for quicker tie-off methods (user can braid the rope between the 2 pins much like a boat cleat is used) and the user can have more “fine tuned” friction possibilities on a shorter and lighter system. The 6 Bar version utilizes a single Tie-Off Bar and 5 Brake Bars.

    • SMC U-Rack assemblies are the only such U-Racks which are UL Certified to the current NFPA standards.
    • U-Rack may be used as either a rappel or lowering device.
    • U-Rack provides for even distribution of weight between both sides of the rack.
    • U-Rack does not twist rope, as can occur when using a Figure 8 type descender.
    • U-Rack may be used with single or double ropes of varying diameters.
    • Different length racks provide wide range of friction and control under varying weights and applications.
    • User may adjust friction by simply wrapping rope around the Tie-Off Bar(s).
    • Stainless steel rack material provides greater strength, reliability and long lasting service.
    • Tie-Off Bars are tubular stainless steel for longer life.
    • Brake Bars are available as aluminum or stainless steel and come in a variety of styles and sizes.
    • Racks & bars may be purchased separately so that the user may have a greater range of set-up configurations tailored to meet their individual needs for non-NFPA applications and as replacement parts.
