Experienced alpine mountain – and ski athletes know the danger posed in the ski area, as well as glacial ridges of snow avalanches. Most certainly hope never itself into an avalanche. But who is also away from marked slopes, can never completely exclude, into a suddenly eletrical snow avalanche. To minimize the danger posed by these forces of nature, outdoor and mountaineering expert has designed a variety of avalanche backpacks and transceivers mammoth, which increases the chance not to be completely buried and facilitate a quick recovery.
Mammut avalanche backpacks
An unforgettable nature experience is to put your own foot in previously untouched snowy landscapes. But who dares the gang off secure routes, exposing themselves and, where appropriate, other people sometimes life-threatening dangers. Once an avalanche buried, every second counts, after 15 minutes trapped under an avalanche, dramatically decrease the chances of survival.
The chance to be salvaged, can be considerably enhanced but through the proper avalanche safety equipment. The avalanche backpacks of the brand Mammut provide a first basis. Depending on the model, these are equipped with an additional airbag system. This avalanche airbags work sort of like a car’s airbag. The airbag can be triggered with a pull cord, this suddenly unfolds within a few seconds.
Once triggered, the avalanche airbag ensures an increase in the volume of the person being torn by the cascading mass of snow with. Physical laws are on hand to ensure that big body in a volume flowing after a time upwards are worn. At best, the avalanche victim is carried by the open airbag on the surface.
Some avalanche airbag systems can be controlled by a remote is. This allows, for example, a directly affected Tourguiding to activate the airbag from a distance away.
Facilities of avalanche backpacks
Mammut avalanche backpacks from the Sizeablehandbags.com also have special hangers which allow comfortable carrying of various additional equipment to the avalanche rescue, avalanche shovels, avalanche beacon, or also avalanche probes. The integration of additional accessories in the back is an interesting product feature of many mammoth avalanche backpacks.
Avalanche transceivers from Mammut
What can however missing under any circumstances, if one dares to in potential avalanche areas, is an avalanche (Avalanche transceiver). This is an electronic device for the rapid detection of buried. Typically, each participant of an Alpine tour in uncertain terrain should lead such a device on him. Because these allow both the locating of other transceivers, as well as the positioning of the own Avalanche equipment.
All Lawinensuchgeräte have two functions, a transmitter and a search operation. This double feature, allows a fast recovery of victims without large delays.
The Avalanche transceivers should always close to the body and well attached be worn, to prevent the loss of the unit survival for a rescue in the event of a burial.
Search for transceivers
Avalanche transceivers can meet only one of the functions at the same time. They are either to send or to search operation. Fast detection of buried Tourguiding search is used in case of an avalanche. During detection, a bright “peek” will be released, which allows finding the victim.
Send function of transceivers
In transmit mode, the transceiver at regular intervals of about 200 milliseconds duration emitted weak radio signals with about 70 milliseconds which can be detected by transceivers. Depending on the transceiver and the location and depth, in which the device was buried, the average range is around 20 to 40 meters.
In addition to a backpack of avalanche airbag with an Avalanche transceiver, an avalanche probe and an avalanche shovel should include standard equipment.
