The indoor climbing centres are gradually beginning to open up again around Europe. The coronavirus pandemic has forced them to close for several weeks and now they are adapting to comply with the hygiene measures requested by each country. On all the climbing walls, disinfection work is being carried out to guarantee clean and safe spaces in their facilities. This involves disinfecting climbing holds, boards, mats, furniture, and of course, the Perfect Descent auto belays for climbing. C-3 Manufacturing, the company that produces the Perfect Descent auto belays, is currently carrying out tests to determine the potential loss of strength in the webbing of the auto belays if ethanol and isopropanol are continuously applied. Until the tests are complete, C-3 Manufacturing DOES NOT recommend the direct application of any chemical disinfectants on the textile webbing of the auto belays. Instead of using chemical disinfectants on the webbing, it is recommended to install protective tubes over the textile webbing. The characteristics of this new Perfect Descent accessory are as follows:
- Transparent vinyl tube (recyclable).
- Maximum useful life of 2 years (the same as the webbing).
- Flexible and lightweight.
- Length: 45 cm.
- Weight: 158 g.
The protective tube is placed on the section of the textile webbing immediately below the locking carabiner of the Perfect Descent device. This accessory is semi-rigid and abrasion resistant and can be continuously cleaned and disinfected, thus minimising the risk of damaging the textile webbing when using chemicals. The tube is transparent, which allows complete and continuous visual checking of the webbing. The installation instructions for the Perfect Descent protective tube for the climbing auto belay can be seen in the video we are sharing here. https://youtu.be/s19o4WGcFoE Fixe, Perfect Descent distributor in Europe Fixe is one of the main distributors of the Perfect Descent auto belays for climbing in Europe.
