Petzl's roots lie in the desire of its founders to fuel one passion: exploration. Since its founder’s beginnings in caving, the mission of Petzl has remained constant: to offer practical solutions that allow people to progress.

Petzl aims to provide round-the-clock technical gear and safety equipment for enthusiasts and professionals. Their specialised headlamps can be used by adventurers and rescue workers for personal escape, spelunking, mountaineering, space rescue systems, fall arrests, climbing, canyoning and sailing.

Fernand PetzlIn founded Petzl with his friend, Pierre Chevalier in 1936. They invented and perfected innovative outdoor products that they could use on their caving expeditions. Forty years later, Petzl continues to develop outdoor gear and provide solutions that allow intrepid explorers to access some of the most inaccessible places in the world.
