Descenders for technical rescue
Easy rope installation
Rope installation is quick and easy, thanks to the markings on the device.
Comfortable, controlled descent, even with heavy loads
The ergonomic handle and integrated brake allow for comfortably controlled descent.
The faceted sheave creates additional friction zones for the rope and thus provides extra braking for lowering heavy loads.
Excellent hauling efficiency
The integrated progress-capture pulley with very large diameter sheave mounted on sealed ball bearings rotates in only one direction for excellent hauling efficiency. The lower connection point can be used to create different types of hauling systems.
AUTO-LOCK system: automatically locks the rope
The AUTO-LOCK system allows automatic locking of the rope when the handle is not in use. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle.
