About Us



RopeSafe is a product of Peak Safety Systems, LLC, a product development company that develops, tests, and sells edge protection systems for specific market segments to capitalize on the gap and lack of adequate edge protection within defined market segments. 

The company was started after the Founder, Jonathan Norton, graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2005. Jonathan served as a US Army Ranger and Infantry Officer in Iraq.

During his last assignment, Jonathan was leading his mountaineering platoon in a 90-foot rappelling evolution when a student lost their footing while initiating a rappel.

The soldier became inverted, and swung in a pendulum-like motion and partially sheared the rope and edge protection. Fortunately, the student was unharmed, but the edge protector failed. After other similar experiences, Jonathan was inspired to create RopeSafe.

It’s Jonathan’s mission to get RopeSafe into the hands of military and first responders who put themselves at risk everyday.
