Weighing only 4.6 oz., the G-FIRST is the lightest NFPA, G-Rated carabiner available.
Named “G-FIRST” and weighing only 4.6 oz, this carabiner is the lightest to ever succeed in meeting requirements to be designated for “General Use” in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association standards. Third-party certified by Underwriters’ Laboratories, the product is aimed specifically at the Fire, Industrial, Rescue, Safety and Tactical markets which rely heavily on the NFPA rating as a measure of performance, quality and safety. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, G-FIRST features a screwlock and boasts a gate opening of over one inch. All G-FIRST carabiners are built with a “Keylock Nose” which marries the gate and frame of the ‘biner, without the traditional “notch and pin” that can sometimes interfere with slings, ropes and other equipment. Subsequent versions will also be available with captive eye retention systems for OEM and other applications.
Rated at 40kN along the major axis and 11kN in both gate open and minor axis tests, the carabiner is up to 50% lighter and costs significantly less than G-Rated steel carabiners designed for similar use. The G-FIRST, one of the most tractable connectors on the market, will have great applications for rescuers, firefighters, riggers, military special forces and at-height workers. G-FIRST is available with a Bright finish (Silver) as well as in Black and Red anodized versions.
