The users of REBS products aim to minimize exposure. We strive to make our products safer, stronger, lighter and faster than any other products in order to maximize the operational performance of our users.
Our products allows our users to minimize the level of exposure and thereby reduce their operational risk.
REBS products are designed to be as strong as possible with extensive use of high performance materials, like carbon fiber, aerospace grade titanium and aluminium. High strength also mean robust and wear-resistant.
Speed and efficiency is essential in many of our users operations. The REBS products are designed to supply our users with the highest performance and speed possible.
Weight is just as critical for our users as strength. The REBS products are therefore designed for the lowest weight possible using high tech design and manufacturing methods and materials.
High performance products with a high strength-to-weight ratio is a key factor in safe operations. In combination with low noise and visual signatures, the REBS products allows our users to minimize the level of exposure and thereby reducing their operational risk.
REBS Launchers uses compressed air to launch a grappling hook projectile great distances. We provide complete launcher packages, that includes all necessary equipment in a custom made storage and transportation box.
Launch the grapnel hook with titanium spring loaded arms up to 50m vertically. Another possibility is to gain instant access up to 25 m with the trailing rope ladder.
The REBS® Launcher enables users to access high-up entry points by launc a grapnel hook on to a permanent fixture and then ascending ropes fixed from that point. The Launcher is perfect for entering buildings, bridges, ships, platforms or cliffs as well as crossing ravines or rivers, both for military and rescue scenarios.
The REBS® Launcher is designed in close co-operation with the Norwegian Forces.
The REBS® Launcher is powered with pressurized air, which facilitates low noise operation and enables easy reloading from ordinary diving bottles.
The grapnel hooks in high strength aluminum alloy and titanium reach distances of 50 meters height and a horizontal distance of 100 meters. A climbing ladder can be launched as high as 25 meters. The power of the launcher can be preset on the fly by adjusting the pressure using the pressure gauge.
The Launcher can be used several times at various heights for each tank refill. The number of shots between refills depends on the pressure used for each shot.
The Compact Launcher is a smaller version of the larger REBS Launcher, and has been developed for more versatile use than the big brother. Whereas the REBS Launcher is designed to be the ultimate boarding tool with unmatched performance, the Compact Launcher is designed to be a light weight, compact in size line thrower for many different applications.
The Compact Launcher is a high performance pneumatic launcher that has been designed for use in maritime and urban environments. The Compact Launcher grants high reliability, reach and versatility.
Based on end user experience from the bigger REBS® launcher and customer requests, the Compact Launcher with collapsible stock was designed. The system is very effective to use in many scenarios including diving, boat-based and land-based climbing operations.
The Compact launcher is powered by pressured air and the 0.35 L bottle can be easily be re-filled from a normal 300 bar diving bottle. Lower pressure diving systems can also be used to charge the tank. Users can set the firing pressure on the fly depending on the height needed. A Compact rope container can be mounted on the barrel and fits 115 ft of 8 mm rope, or 53 ft of rope ladder. Multiple shots can be fired from a single bottle charge.
REBS offer a diverse suite of ladders optimized for urban, maritime, and rugged terrain use. We have several different categories.
Ladders offered by REBS can also be used for bridging short and medium distances, and can also double as litters or stretchers for casualty evacuation.
The Tactical ladder is a rigid section aluminum ladder with great strength and versatility. It consists of multiple segments that are fast and easy to connect together with a quick release pin.
Fixed ladders are in many cases a more effective alternative than flexible ladders. The Tactical ladder can be used in both urban and boat to boat operations. It is also well suited for entering buildings or ledges in urban environments.
The REBS® Carbon Ladder is a light weight rigid section ladder that is excellent for both urban and marine boarding and entering.
Developed in close cooperation with the Norwegian Forces, strength, robustness and weight are key features. The ladder can be used from a boat or by divers for entering a ship. It is also a suitable alternative for entering buildings through verandas or windows.
The Carbon Multi Ladder is a multi function ladder system comprised of carbon fiber ladder sections. The innovative, lightweight, strong and smooth design is derived from the same advanced molding techniques also used to fabricate modern bicycle frames and components.
As a result of the state-of-the-art fabrication process, the ladder design optimizes the carbon fiber properties into a very strong monocoque frame. The Carbon Multi Ladder system packs into a low-volume package that is easily carried on a backpack or with the custom CML Backpack. The Carbon Multi Ladder can be used in multiple configurations.
The new design of the wire ladders has the highest strength to weight ratio of any wire ladder in the world. The wire ladders have been developed with input from professional users and have high-end features for superior performance in tenuous situations. All ladders are delivered ready to use. The rungs are diamond knurled and provide a durable high friction grip surface.
Wire ladders are often used in combination with telescopic poles. The ladders are strong and rugged, but also compact in size, exceptionally light weight, and pack compactly and easily.
Our wire ladders are delivered completely prepared for immediate use. Every ladder is fitted with thimbles, proper connectors and checked and approved before they are put in stock for fast delivery.
No matter if you are climbing a rigid ladder, a caving ladder or using a powered ascender on a rope, an overhead anchor is needed for vertical access.
We offer hooks in a variety of sizes, capacities and functions. Common for them all is a high capacity / weight ratio.
Minimum Break Load (MBL) During design and pre-production stages, each hook is qualified and certified to a minimum of 1000 kg (2204 lbs) load capacity. This ensures safe performance of the hook with loads up to 1000 kg (2204 lbs). At loads near the MBL, a small amount of permanent deformation of the hook may be expected, but the strength will remain intact.
REBS hooks can be supplied with several different interfaces that enable their use with each of the different placement systems including carbon poles, giraffe and windup poles, and Rolatubes. The different interfaces includes Hulk, Tactical Hook, Pigg Release, Rolatube.
The REBS range of telescopic poles are all extendable/ retractable and have a very high reach / portability factor. Use the pole to place a hook with wire- or rope ladder on a suitable entering point.
The hook separates from the pole and an entry point is gained.
The manual telescopic pole consists of multiple carbon fiber segments telescoping into each other. At the end of each segment is a quick-action clamp with a lever that securely locks the internal segment in place.
The Windup Pole is a high-performance, 15 m windup action telescopic pole. It is compact, fast and strong and designed for use both on land and at sea. The main difference compared to the manual telescopic poles is the windup control which means that the pole needs less handling and is under certain conditions much easier to extend.
The Giraffe Tracer is a pneumatic powered extension and retraction pole for boarding and entering. The Giraffe Tracer is available in two different lengths: 3,3 m retracted / 10 m extended (11 ft retracted / 33 ft extended) and 4,4 / 15 m (14,5 ft / 50 ft). The Giraffe features an easy to use pneumatic system with push button control for precision up and down movements. The control handle is collapsible and adjustable to retain a slim profile when not in use.
The Rolatube is made from an innovative low weight bistable composite material that can be coiled into a very compact roll. Roll out the Rolatube and it instantly snaps into a long rigid pole. The Rolatube is a versatile tool that can be used in boarding, urban operations, and beyond. It is suitable as a stop mast, a signal mast, for surveillance, or any other uses where a portable, compact and collapsible pole is needed.
