The T-max™ is a new generation line-throwing appliance specifically designed to deploy a line only, a grappling hook and climbing line, or a grappling hook and ascending ladder to an otherwise inaccessible point in both land-based and maritime environments without putting the operator at risk.
The unit is suitable for both vertical deployment, for such purposes as;
- boarding a ship
- ascending a rock face
- ascending a building or other structure
It is also suitable for horizontal deployment, for a wide variety of purposes such as establishing a line;
- across a river or stream
- between the roof tops of buildings
- from ship-to-ship for towing lines or for underway replenishment purposes
Flat black in color, and fueled by compressed air, the projectile leaves no signature trail. At discharge the only sound is a "whoosh" of air barely, if at all, audible from the target location.
The R-max™ is a new generation line-throwing appliance specifically designed to deploy a line only, or an auto-inflating flotation sling & retrieval line to an otherwise inaccessible point in both land-based and maritime environments, providing an emergency response capability without putting the rescuer at risk. has been developed to assist departments in meeting the requirements of NFPA 1006 and NFPA 1670.
As a non-pyrotechnic it does not require special storage, shipping or licensing -- is intrinsically safe -- and is fueled by compressed air -- making training an inexpensive operation. This equipment is an essential for swiftwater rescue, ice rescue, surf water rescue, technical rope rescue and fills a host of applications in an emergency. The Rescue Sling is a hand deployed auto-inflating flotation harness and throw line. It is available in configurations for a variety of users in emergency situations.
The ALM-T and ALM-T-HP series were designed to suit the missions of modern day Tactical & Special Forces units - for use in applications which may include severe exposure to marine environments, including submersion in seawater - such as sub-surface movements of swimmers, as well as for land-based and surface based maritime environments.
Each launcher housing is cast from Grade IV Titanium, and each launcher mechanism is machined from Ti 6AL-4V Titanium. Titanium is inert to seawater.
The ALM - T projectiles are made from 6061-T6 heat treated aluminum, with a service pressure of 3,000 psi. / 207 Bar.
The ALM - T - HP series is designed for the same applications as the ALM - T, but offers higher performance, operating at higher service pressure. The projectiles are made from Ti 6AL-4V heat treated titanium, with a service pressure of 4,500 psi. / 300 Bar.
