Everyone appreciates the versatility and convenience of a Daisy Chain but in its traditional style it can be used incorrectly and thus become dangerous. In fact, there is no Daisy Chain on the market that is guaranteed by EC parameters and it supports 22kN each ring as for backsets or carabiners.
It can therefore be considered as the weak ring of the system, especially if used in relief maneuvers. The rings of a classic Daisy Chain have a resistance that does not exceed 2kN because they are designed to support a static load and consequently the only way to use a Daisy Chain is to use it on the two extreme points.
The Dyneema bundles are so thin that they can be cut when they are tractive. Grivel has studied this problem for a long time and with GDC he has finally come to a solution.
Today Grivel offers a guaranteed Daisy Chain according to the 22kN parameters for each ring, reducing the risk of error and dangerous maneuvers.
