The large contact surface area of the Micro Wallnuts allows them to spread loads over a greater area of rock, decreasing the chance of the rock failing.
They feature straight sides to give alternative placement options to our other alloy micro-protection. Used in conjunction with Peenuts they provide comprehensive protection for small cracks in friable rock.
Micro protection for small cracks
As climbs become harder, the need to make the most of all available protection increases. Micro protection lets you protect cracks which normal sized pieces would not fit. Having these wires on your rack gives you more options.
Large surface area effectively dissipates force
These nuts have large surface areas that spread forces in a fall across a greater area, increasing placement security in fragile rock. They increase security on routes where fragile rock may be encountered.
Colour coded for easy size identification
The DMM protection range is colour coded for quick and easy size selection. Colours are co-ordinated across passive and active protection, for quick selection of alternatives if your first choice doesn't fit.
Passive protection works in wet and icy conditions
Passive protection works by jamming in constrictions to prevent falls. It is suitable for use in all conditions. Unlike active protection such as cams, passive protection can be used in wet or icy cracks, where friction is reduced.
