The Flat Hook range has been CNC-machined from a solid 16mm sheet of Grade 5 titanium, improving its strength-to-weight ratio. The hooks have been specifically designed to offer both hook and point loading. This design was a requirement from a number of units operating on structures without handrails or similar easy accessible structures.
The sharp point on the end of the hook has been specifically designed to dig into a number of materials commonly found both in urban and maritime environments. Where possible hooks should always be arch loaded as this gives the highest break loads. If the operators approach a target and arch loading the hook is not possible, point loading will provide a viable alternative. When point loading it is important to keep pressure on the hook and ladder at all times.
The P Hooks comes in a variety of sizes, making the range suitable for many purposes, from covert operations to boarding vessels with large kick plates (see below for size comparison)
