Features

  • Designed for experienced rope access workers
  • Easy to use:
    – safety gate on the moving side plate allows the rope to be installed easily while the device remains connected to the harness, facilitating the passage of intermediate anchors
    – easy rope installation, thanks to the rope guide and markings
    – ergonomic handle allows the rope to be released and enables convenient descent control. Two possible descent modes: on the side plate or in the V-shaped friction channel
    – AUTO-LOCK system allows users to easily position themselves at the work station without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device: as soon as the user releases the handle, the rope is automatically locked in the device. The automatic return system on the handle limits the risk of the device getting accidentally snagged
    – handle automatically switches to storage position when the rope is removed from the device, reducing the risk of accidental snagging when the descender is carried on the harness
  • Versatile:
    – once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle, allowing for easy short ascents, for example
    – cam can be manipulated to take up slack easily or belay a lead using climbing techniques
  • The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone
  • Descending a heavy load up to 200 kg
  • Rope compatibility: 10 to 11.5 mm in diameter
  • Available in two colours: gold and black
