Fire escape systems present unique challenges when it comes to testing. We developed specialized testing procedures designed to simulate real fire conditions: high heat, rollover, and flashover. We subjected our anchor hooks and escape ropes to these conditions for a set period of time or until failure. This test was a winner of the Best New Research Award at the 2016 International Technical Rescue Symposium.

The purpose of the testing was to provide comparative data for the arbor community on hitch performance.
