Rope access descender
The brake-side rope can run over the reinforced edge, or in the friction groove, depending on rope diameter, user preference, the position of the braking carabiner and the hand...
Lowering with I’D attached to an anchor
The EN 341 standard changed in 2011 and contains new static and dynamic test requirements. Also, the mass required for performing the standard tests increased by 25 % (test mass of 187.5 kg).
Belaying with I’D attached to an anchor
I’D on the anchor allows for belaying a person who is using another progression system.
The user must never let go of the brake-side rope. The user must always make sure to keep slack out of the rope between the I’D and the anchor, to reduce the risk of a fall.
