May the GRIGRI be used for work at height?
The GRIGRI D14 belay device was specifically designed for belaying a single person using rock climbing techniques.
The I’D and RIG descenders were specifically designed for work at height activities and are more suited to the needs of the job: work positioning, anti-panic function, ergonomics, product robustness...
The GRIGRI may thus be used to belay a single person using rock climbing techniques. But it is not the most suitable of our products for descending in a work-at-height situation, as it will wear quickly and has no locking function for hands-free work positioning.
