PID535

The Petzl Zigzag is a popular and top performing mechanical climbing device. Functioning just like a classic prusik in Moving Rope Systems, also called Doubled Rope Technique, the Zigzag is intuitive and easy to use. Performing ad operating just like a prusik and pulley system, the Zigzag is a favorite among arborists with mechanical devices. The friction chain provides precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. Can be used in either a Moving Rope System, or Stationary Rope System when used with the Petzl Chicane. The release lever provides easy adjustments and great control when moving around the canopy or bombing out of the tree. For use on Climbing Lines 11.5mm to 13mm Available with or without a swivel.

Functioning just like a classic prusik in Moving Rope Systems, also called Doubled Rope Technique, the Zigzag is intuitive and easy to use. Performing and operating just like a prusik and pulley system, the Zigzag is a favorite among arborists with mechanical devices.
The friction chain provides precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. Can be used in either a Moving Rope System, or Stationary Rope System when used with the Petzl Chicane.
The release lever provides easy adjustments and great control when moving around the canopy or bombing out of the tree. 
Available with or without a swivel.  The Zigzag Plus comes with a swivel.

    Intuitive to use:
    - technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system
    - the device locks automatically on the rope once the friction chain extends

    For efficient movement within the tree:
    - rope feed is smooth and precise thanks to the release lever, allowing the user great control over his/her movements. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement
    - easy to take up slack, thanks to the pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings and the separated and curved side plates
    - lower attachment hole is fixed to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and optimize grip

    Versatile:
    - for use on either doubled ropes or a single rope, thanks to the CHICANE accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the KNEE ASCENT assemblies, which facilitate the ascent
    - upper attachment hole for the rope end when using a doubled rope or for the CHICANE auxiliary braking device when using a single rope. It has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis
    - auxiliary attachment hole for adding a ZILLON lanyard or connecting a second system

    Durability:
    - steel construction for improved durability
    - separated and curved side plates for better wear resistance

    Rope compatibility: 11.5 to 13 mm diameter

    ZIGZAG allows the user to work in compliance with the ANSI Z133 standard
