The Austrian company Pieps GmbH is regarded as the global technology leader in the manufacture of avalanche beeps (LVS devices). For 45 years, the company has been developing, producing and marketing products for safety in ice and snow on a global scale.
Already in 1968, PIEPS developed its first avalanche transceiver in cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology, which was successfully launched on the market in 1971. In 2003, PIEPS was the first company worldwide to launch the first 3-antenna avalanche transceiver with digital signal processing and integrated MARK and SCAN functions.
Another product innovation is the unique electronic avalanche probe PIEPS iPROBE, which reduces the search time by up to 60% and drastically increases the chances of survival for the buried subject.
In winter 2014, the avalanche airbag market was also revolutionised with the introduction of the PIEPS JETFORCE. This is the first electronic avalanche airbag technology with a jet blower that uses ambient air only for inflation and allows multiple deployment.
Further product innovations will be presented in 2016. In addition to the new shovels with unique C-handle, a small, lightweight 3-antenna device with sensor and Bluetooth technology will also be launched.
The basis for these successes is the in-house development department and the in-house production competence centre in Lebring / Austria, which work closely with professionals from the various mountain sports sectors.
Furthermore, all products are developed and produced under the motto PREMIUM ALPINE PERFORMANCE.
