Access the Inaccessible®

"We all have our own limits to push, our own frontiers to explore.
We all seek our own inaccessible."

Petzl's commitment

Paul Petzl

"Petzl’s mission is to create innovative tools and services that allow men and women to progress, to position, and to protect themselves in vertical environments, as well as to light their way in the dark. This drive manifests itself in our never-ending search to find the best solutions for user needs, in terms of performance, ergonomics, comfort, and reliability. Beyond the product itself, the demands, commitment, and willingness of users to face risks in the field are what guide our approach to supporting them in their pursuit of the "inaccessible". From preparation to realization, we have stood right by their side for the last forty years."

Paul Petzl
