The Yates Ice Screams is a multi-functional energy absorbing device. Screamers will provide added protection in climbing and rescue situations. Screamers not only absorb energy directly because of the stitch ripping effect, they also allow your rope to absorb more energy from the fall by increasing the time interval of the fall. Screamers can reduce shock loading in any rescue system. The standard screamer can effectively reduce peak loads by 3-4 kN on any climbing or rescue system. YATES original Screamers were first developed over ten years ago; Yates has since developed numerous variations on the screamer design with use in Aerospace, Military and explosive testing to decelerate various objects. Yates has determined that the most effective activation for a standard screamer to be >2kn or 550 lb. per foot. for climbing related situations.

Yates Ice Screams

:: Specifications

  • Activation: >2Kn
  • Reduction in system peak loading 3-4kN
  • Runner Strength: 26kN

:: Features

  • When the screamer activates, the action of the stitching ripping produces a load tearing sound, indicating the system has reached the activation point of the Screamer >2 kN
  • The activation point of a Screamer is consistently repeatable to +- 5% accuracy
  • Screamers are very useful in documenting maximum loads in a given situation, such is their use in rescue
  • Screamers can be combined in series and ganged up double or triple to increase the activation force or the total absorption
