The lightweight and unobtrusive Self Rescue Harness 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 backpack. The backpack contains:
- Parachute type ‘rip cord’ that releases the descending system
- Braking mechanism and spool, with a 20m cord that gently lowers the user to the ground
- Standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall zone
All harnesses are to be inspected every 6 months (minimum) as required by AS/NZS 1891.4:2009. Saferight offers testing, tagging and inspection services.
