RECAUTIONARY RECALL: SALEWA VIA FERRATA SET WITH LANYARD ENERGY ABSORBER – ALL MODELS

Following a comprehensive test programme conducted on used or aged rope friction based Via Ferrata Sets, the climbing industry has found that some of these sets can fail in a fall situation.
The testing showed that the impact force in a fall may be increased and that the tensile strength of the lanyards may also be reduced in such a way that it could result in a full failure of the Via Ferrata Set. Severe injury or death may be the consequence.

In order to exclude every possible risk for our customers, SALEWA has decided to initiate a preemptive recall from the market of all Via Ferrata Sets with rope friction brakes. All SALEWA Via Ferrata Sets with a rope friction brake of this or similar design are affected, and they may be in circulation in a variety of possible colours, produced within the last 10 years. The production years is reported in the cloth tag (V09 refers to the year 2009). Please, stop using the affected sets immediately.

If you have one of the affected Via Ferrata Sets, you can return it to SALEWA for replacement free of charge. The replacement will be a set of equivalent quality in the latest state of technology, with a textile shock absorber instead. To return your Via Ferrata Set, follow the instruction you can find in the “Manual” document. The delivery of the replacement products will take around 8 weeks for logistical and production reasons. You can check on the status of your return procedure at any time. To compensate for the costs of postage, we will include an Icono multifunctional headband when packaging your replacement set.

Set will be replaced only if produced within ten (10) years.

The CE code shown on the products refers to the body that performs the annual inspection of the products, as required by EU Regulation 425/2016 for category III security products.

SALEWA CARABINER HOT G2 BENT RECALL AND REPLACEMENT: SALEWA HOT G2 BENT CARABINER/ART. NO.: 1557 Only serial numbers 02 11 and 03 11
The recall concerns the Hot G2 Bent model of carabiners.
The characteristics of the carabiner in question are:

Art. no.: 1557 Hot G2 Bent
Colour: 0999/ red

The Hot G2 Bent carabiners to recall have the following serial numbers:

- 02 11
- 03 11

These numbers are found next to the information on the tensile strength of the carabiner (see figure) or on the front of the carabiner, next to the certification number. The recall concerns only the carabiners. Since there are no original SALEWA Express Sets for these carabiners, the recall DOES NOT CONCERN the SALEWA Express Sets.

Sets with pull textile energy absorbers with this or a similar construction, in different colour variations, are not affected.

The context:
To ensure maximum quality and safety, SALEWA conducts regular tests on the safety equipment. We have therefore conducted tests on the carrying capacity of the carabiners, during which some irregularities different from the standard tensile strength values were found.

Please note. The test was conducted in extreme conditions that are highly unlikely to be encountered in daily practice. However, SALEWA has decided to recall all Hot G2 Bent carabiners with the serial numbers mentioned from the market as a precautionary measure, in order to prevent any risk to users.

All carabiner owners are asked to contact a specialised SALEWA dealer or SALEWA directly. The carabiners corresponding to the description will be replaced with new carabiners.

Warning: Only the Hot G2 Bent model of carabiners with the serial numbers provided above will be replaced. The recall does NOT concern the other carabiners.
