Product Recall Notice for Flash™ Hook 300980 and FlashLite™ Hook 300981: During product validation testing of a newly developed escape hook, CMC discovered the test fixture used to certify the existing Flash™ Hooks and FlashLite™ Hooks unintentionally influenced the NFPA 1983 strength results when tested at Underwriters Laboratory (UL). Ongoing testing indicates that in some applications Flash™ Hooks and FlashLite™ Hooks may be lower in strength than the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) marked on the products.

The Rapid, Reliable and Ultra-Compact Means of Escape
The ultra-compact and efficient CMC Escape Artist System (Web) equips you with all the tools you need for a successful emergency egress, and allows hands-free operation to ensure a safe edge transition and controllable descent. Developed as a reliable and lightweight escape solution, the lower-profile System includes 50 feet of proprietary CMC Fire Escape Web, made of 100% Technora® fiber for strength and durability when exposed to heat and flame. The Web System’s flame- and temperature-resistant components also include our patented FlashLite Hook escape anchor and a Single-Brake Escape Artist, all compactly organized into a durable Fire Escape Bag constructed of Nomex® fabric.
Delivering outstanding strength with minimal weight (just 5.7 oz!), the innovative new CMC FlashLite Hook escape anchor is the lightest Escape Use-certified model available. The hook’s ergonomic design eliminates excess bulk, and its narrow .375” width provides the slimmest profile possible. The Fire Escape Bag’s distinct shape and unique design house the escape anchor and rope separately and securely, with the FlashLite Hook readily accessible from its quick-draw style pocket. The bag attaches securely to a belt or harness with hook and loop, or by threading a belt through its integrated tunnel loop. For rapid deployment, connect the System to your escape belt or harness using the included tether.
Web vs. Rope Systems
Our Fire Escape Web greatly reduces the size and weight of the system, making it the optimal lightweight escape solution.
