Cords

BCI's bungee cords are designed to operate between 325% and 400% elongation and provide a very smooth ride for your clients, by creating g-forces between 2.4 - 2.8. Cords meet or exceed CBA, NABA, BERSA, SANZ and Australian specifications.

BCI cords are the finest available because they made with the highest quality materials, are manufactured with exclusive proprietary methods which maximizes the strength and predictability of the finished product, and have built into them several safety features not found on most other cords.

Materials

The rubber itself is highly specialized and designed specifically for bungee. It has a linear stress vs. strain ratio throughout the entire 400% elongation. Many other rubber designs begin to curve upwards between 300-400%. The rubber offers a dual helical binding of threads to minimize premature wear and distortion. It is also formulated with special compounds and additives which offer ozone and UV protection - the largest factor responsible for the deterioration of the rubber. It also has a special silicon coating which minimizes friction between the individual strands of rubber and offers overall abrasion resistance. Most of the rubber used today is still coated with talc. Do you know what your current supplier is using?

Manufacturing

During the manufacturing process the rubber at the ends of the cord which surround the bobbins is wrapped under tension to eliminate any movement, thus preventing wear between rubber and bobbin. All cord end connection points are made redundant using three layers of individually sewn 1" mil-spec tubular webbing. The length of the cords are double-wrapped in opposite directions to ensure the elimination of 'soft spots' on the cord, maintain structural integrity and thus maximize cord life.

Safety Options

All cords come equipped with the latest safety and protection features, including a backup, fall-arrest system and protective sheath for abrasion and foreign material resistance. The sheaths are also colour coded for ease of cord selection. Sewn leather wear pads at carabineer connection points are used for ease of hook-up and abrasion resistance on the materials under load.

 

Harnesses

All equipment used by BCI has been specifically designed and engineered for bungee jumping or rescue applications. We do not use, sell, or advocate the use of "off-the-shelf" rock climbing equipment. The equipment BCI sells meets or exceeds CBA, NABA, BERSA, SANZ and Australian specifications. In addition many of the items also have UIAA, ULI and NFPA approvals.

Harnesses:
All harnesses are UIAA approved and are designed to give a minimum of 10:1 safety factor when used as instructed. They also meet or exceed CBA, NABA, BERSA, SANZ and Australian specifications. There are several different harness designs, not shown, which are available. BCI can also do custom designs to meet your needs. If there are features you would like incorporated your harnesses, let us know.

Ankle Harnesses:
Double padded with one or two buckles on each ankle, constructed with heavy-duty 2" mil-spec webbing. Includes backup safety strap which is attached to a body harness system. Ankle harnesses can also be custom made to your specifications. 

Waist Harnesses:
An adjustable Waist Harness (padded w/ quick buckles). Waist and legs are fully padded. Large "D-ring" attachment point at front. "D-Rings" are coloured coded for sizes XS, S, M, L and XL. Adjustable buckles with spring-loaded locks (optional) on the waist and legs.

Chest Harnesses:
A fully adjustable figure eight design constructed with durable 2"(50mm) webbing. Your choice of colors. One size fits all. Used in conjunction with the waist harness to provide a redundant harness system

 

RIGGING PLATE

Stainless Steel Design

Can be used with manual or powered lowering system

Can be used for lowering or raising

Two capstans for redundancy

The Rigging Plate is used with the 2-cam to provide an adjustable anchoring system at jump site where water dips are preformed

 

Carabiners

Standard D 1/2" Steel NFPA Screw-Lok Crabiner
Large D shape for great handling, huge gate opening and massive strength! At a rated strength of 72kN, it's one of the strongest carabiners in the world! Heat-treated, half-load tested (over 8000 lbf.) and built to exacting standards, the ½" Large D is one very fine steel carabiner.

Modified D 1/2" Steel Screw-Lok Carabiner
Same "D" shape as our 7/16" model, but with bigger material for increased strength. Same great handling and use characteristics but with a strength rating of 63kN (that's over 14,000 lbf.!). Like all our carabiners, every ½" Modified D is individually proof-tested to half it's rated strength which means every one of these has been proven to hold over 7000 lbs!

Jake Sr. Quick-Lok Aluminum Carabiner
To be honest, the Jake is one of the coolest carabiners on the market and, for years, has set the standard for HMS carabiners. To start with, its shape orients the load, predictably, where we want it every time. Other belay carabiners can be loaded on the nose of the ‘biner … a very dangerous situation.

Jake Jr. Quick-Lok Aluminum Carabiner
Same as the Jake Sr. carabiner however with a 20 mm gate opening as opposed to the Jake Sr's 24 mm gate opening.

 

2 Cam

Stainless Steel design

Reversible cams allow for locking off ropes in both directions

Used in conjunction with our proprietary rigging plate

 

Pulleys

2" and 4" SMC/RA Sealed Ball Bearing Single Pulleys

Features and Benefits:

  • UL Certified to NFPA 1983 "T" Technical Use.
  • Uses high efficiency sealed ball bearings bushings and are designed to work flawlessly under conditions that might shut down a lower quality pulley.
  • Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency thus reducing the performance robbing resistance inherent in most multiple component systems and are not prone to failure under misaligned loads or with twisted gear as may occur with needle bearings.
  • Matched double-bend side plates help eliminate compression under load.
  • Solid side plates help to keep dirt and debris out of the rope track.
  • The axle-nuts are double locked to the steel axle and marked with a witness line to help detect any loosening.
  • Made in the USA.
 

Ropes

BCI offers a full selection of slings and kernmantle and double-braided ropes from 3mm accessory cord up to 24mm (1 inch) in all types of materials such as nylon, polyester, spectra, kevlar, and steel. Let us know your application and we can provide the rope size, material, and braid best suited to your needs.
