The lightweight, unobtrusive PRD is an integrated harness system for self-rescue. In the event of a fall the device lowers the user gently to the ground in a controlled descent. The whole rescue process only takes a few seconds due to the Latchways engineering in the ‘back pack’ which contains:
The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts ensuring 100% mechanical integrity which is defined by the design standards the device meets and exceeds
The patented Latchways componentry has been designed to fit neatly into the ‘back pack’ to ensure the worker can safely go about their daily work. The ‘back pack’ fits onto a harness so that it becomes part of everyday work wear for those who work at height. It’s lightweight and unobtrusive but also robust ensuring it can withstand the rigors of the harshest working environments.
Unlike all other rescue devices no specialist training is required as the device is worn as part of a standard harness and activation is achieved by simply pulling the ‘rip cord’. Once the ‘rip cord’ is pulled the spool and its integral braking mechanism lower the user to the ground in a controlled descent.
