Recall: Vie Ferrata Sets with Older Shock Absorber from Different Manufacturers

Older and Intensive Used Via Ferrata Sets not meet the Safety Standards

Salewa, Edelrid, Mammut Recall Precautionary Older Via Ferrata Sets

2013/02/25: Bern, Munich: Tests with older and intensive used vie ferrata sets from manufacturers and institutions show that via ferrata sets with metal shock absorber with rope friction technology do not meet the safety standards.


Salewa, Edelrid and Mammut recall precautionary charges of via ferrata sets using
rope friction technology. Other manufacturers (AustriAlpin, climbing technology (CT), Singing Rock and Stubai) warn their user for using the via ferrata sets. No recall but AustriAlpin’s sets with a rope break as shown below must not be used any further because of obsolescence (produced before 2007). The other manufacturers are testing their via ferrata sets.

The latest recalls are not congruent with the recalls of via ferrata sets with elastic lanyards in 2012 (Equipment Alerts).

Mammut Preventive Recalls Via Ferrata Sets of Some Tec Step 2012 Series

Danger is only expected when using the sets after the recommended time of use

10/18/2012, Seon, Switzerland: The swiss climbing gear manufacturer Mammut calls some series of the Tec Step via ferrata sets back. Though tests of the elastic carabiner branches have shown that the durability in use is much higher, than of the material used in the recalled sets of other manufacturers, Mammut decided to recall some of the via ferrata set series. This is noteworthy, because a short time ago Mammut identified the differences of the used materials of the different manufacturers and made diverse tests to preclude a recall of their via ferrata sets.


Affected are now the via ferrata set series with the until now tested elastic lanyards.
