Pulley with Fixed Side Plates
Petzl’s FIXE is a pulley with a fixed side plate. It is lightweight, compact and quick to install on the rope and offers a good balance between weight and strength. It allows a hauling system to be set up when used with a mechanical ascender. It is also useful for redirection of the rope to avoid rope drag and wear. Its high efficiency is due to the sheave mounted on self-lubricating bushings. The FIXE is for use on ropes with a maximum diameter of 13 mm.
