Petzl meets the needs of the most demanding athletes
When cave researcher and passionate caver Fernand Petzl innovated the first mountaineering headlamp in the early 1970s, he revolutionised caving equipment for recreational and professional explorers and adventurers. Petzl founded the company to serve his hunger for adventure. In 1975 Petzl established its headquarters in Crolles, France. Since then, while the company has grown into a global enterprise, its mission has remained the same: to invent reliable and durable products and solutions that enable sports enthusiasts and professionals to reach new heights and depths while giving them the tools to access some of the most inaccessible places on earth, day and night. For customers of Petzl, endurance and quality are paramount. At Petzl, these requirements are at the forefront of each product from the research stage to final production. At Petzl, products are subjected to many rigorous tests in the lab at every stage of the development and manufacturing process. Starting from the design and prototype phases, the tests and inspections are conducted in accordance with the company’s strict superior controls, as the dependability of the product and user safety standards are evaluated with dynamic fall tests, impact resistance, cyclic testing, performance, headlamp beam quality and burn time to ensure that their products meet and outperform existing industry benchmarks.
