Purchasing Tree Climbing Equipment

January 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 139

Whether you climb trees for recreation or for your job, it is essential to have the proper tree climbing gear in order to stay safe and prevent possible accidents. The right gear will depend upon the tree that you are climbing and the height of the climb, but in every case, investing in top quality products is key as your investment in the right equipment is an investment in your safety.

Types of Tree Climbing Equipment

Tree climbing equipment ranges from the simple to the complex. The most basic of tools include climbing rope and climbing saddles, both of which can help you to get to the top of the tree more easily and safely. These basic types of tree climbing equipment are just the tip of the iceberg though.

Other possible equipment you may need includes ascenders, descenders, carabiners, pulleys, snaps, safety lanyards, throw lines and throw-weights. Spikes and spurs, both of which help you to get a better grip on the tree and make sure you are able to keep your footing, are also useful. Each of these different tools serves a different purpose but can be equally important so you are prepared to climb any type of tree you encounter or wish to scale.

What to Look For When Purchasing Tree Climbing Equipment

Knowing the type of tree climbing equipment to buy is only the tip of the iceberg in making a wise buying choice. There are also several other important considerations to make sure you get the right equipment.

The quality of the products purchased and the company from which you purchase them, for example, can make a major difference in how well the equipment works to help you with your climb. Even something as simple as climbing rope has different levels of quality, based in large part on how many strands are woven together to create the rope and on what material was used for the rope. Obviously, the more strands the better, with 16 strand rope typically considered stronger than 12 strand.

Of course, as in most things, the higher the quality of tree climbing equipment, the higher the price is likely to be. As such, you need to carefully weigh the value of all products you are buying. For instance, while the 16 strand rope may have a breaking strength of 8,100 pounds, you may be content with the 7,300 pound breaking strength of the 12 strand rope. The choice depends on the particulars of your climbing endeavor and on how often you plan to use the products. Remember, though, that price is not the only consideration or even the foremost consideration when buying tree climbing equipment: staying safe at high heights is.

Making Your Purchase

The best way to make sure you get the tree climbing equipment that is right for you is to find a reliable company with a vast selection and a good reputation. You can browse the different products available, learn all about each option and make an informed buying choice.
