Air Rope / Air Rope

Air Rope
Air Rope

Air Rope is an inflatable rescue tunnel that can be deployed during flood situations. It is a safer option to the rope pulley system and is easier to use. Instead of braving the torrent and crossing the river to secure a pulley system, the inflatable air walk is used. Air is pumped into a doughnut-shaped fabric tube that extends into a round tunnel.


•It can be used as a thoroughfare across a river when secured to the ground and a tree at each end.
•A motor and propeller create a powerful flow of air.
•The air nozzle has a screw-in profile to prevent air leakage.
•When deflated, the tube can be folded and packed into its storage case.
