Machined from 1/2-inch (12.5-mm) plate, CMC's classic Rescue 8 design has been refined for even better performance with today’s selection of rescue rope. Descenders no longer routinely use 5/8-in (16-mm) rope, so the smaller dimensions of CMC's Rescue 8 provide greater control. The proprietary finish on the aluminum model provides outstanding wear resistance, while the nickel-chrome-plated steel model excels in high-wear situations, such as sandy, gritty environments. The extended carabiner hole accommodates multiple carabiners.

* Certified range of rope diameters and CMC’s recommendation for best performance.

Super Finish On CMC’s Aluminum 8s 
Whether hard or soft, the surface anodizing on aluminum descenders eventually wears through. Working with a company that specializes in material coatings, we developed a finish for our Rescue 8 and Rappel 8 that outwears every descender we’ve used. After years of heavy use, test samples continue to be used in CMC School classes without showing any indication of the surface wearing through.

Rescue Industry Applications
The Rescue 8 descender is a type of descent device commonly referred to within the technical rescue industry as a figure eight descender and is used for rappelling and descent maneuvers in the field in search and rescue (SAR), urban search & rescue (USAR) and has solution applications for fire rescue and industrial rope access.
