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.

Despite of the preventive recall Mammut states that a direct danger for the users of the sets in when using the sets is not existent, because the sets where only sold in 2012 and therewith only in short use. The issue is no urgent danger, but a danger that only appears when the by Mammut recommended time of use is exceeded.

 

In the affected and returned sets the elastic carabiner branches would be replaced with a construction that should increase the safety additionally and excludes the described risk.

 

Customers can bring their affected sets either to their authorized Mammut dealer or send it directly to the Mammut customer service. The shipping costs will be compensated by Mammut. Mammut points out that the repair would take some time.
