Wild Country Is The Sixth Manufacturer That Recalls Their Via Ferrata Sets

Older tests do not identify the problem of the via ferrata sets

09/05/2012, Gwynedd, Wales, Great Britain: The welsh manufacturer of climbing gear Wild Country recalls as sixth manufacturer their via ferrata sets. Wild Country is a part of the Salewa group since 2012.

Like the awareness of other companies the problem are the elastic lanyards that may crack after heavy use if the lanyards are dirty. After new detailed testing also Wild Country came to the conclusion that their used webbing material is affected by the heavy abrasion in use of the sets.

Cause of the testing is the accident at 08/05/2012 with a rental via ferrata set from Edelrid in Tirol, Austria. The  result is the wave of testing and recalls of via ferrata sets from manufacturers of climbing gear.

The following sets are affected:




All user: The use of these via ferrata sets should be stopped immediately. A further use of the set may be a danger to life. Please return your affected via ferrata set directly to your retailer, send it to the distributor of your country or send it directly to Wild Country.

For rental services: The rental has to be stopped immediately to guaranty that the sets are not in use anymore. Return your sets to Wild Country.

Retailers have to stop the sale of these sets immediately.

Wild Country is going to replace the elastic lanyards when the new lanyards not fail the new testing. Then Wild Country will send the sets back as fast as possible.

It is essential that you write your address, your e-mail and telephone number and securely attach to any unit shipped to Wild Country.

As a compensation for shipping cost, you will receive a Wild Country quickdraw.
