PED5 - personal evacuation device
D2 - descender kit
The D2 Escape Descender is a new & innovative ‘double-stop’ Descender. The newly developed handle operated cam-system stops the descent in an emergency situation rather than just slowing it down. The D2 descender is the only microdescender in the world to offer this function.
The D2 can be controlled by pushing in the cam (ideally using the thumb) which allows the user to smoothly feed the rope through the device, without the use of the handle. The cam feed feature is particularly useful for fast Bail-out or for work positioning during roof work for example.
The Descender is compact and lightweight, allowing it to be carried on the harness at all times. Standard kits are supplied with a 15m (50ft) working length. Other lengths are available upon request.
Standard polyester ropes are ideal for use in areas such as Linesman self-rescue from pole-tops or for escape from towers or elevating work platforms. Aramid fibres such as those in Technora rope are ideal for use in applications where fire is the main hazard. Standard kits are assembled with knotted termination (sewn terminations available upon request) 100% Technora® sheath and nylon core.
Technora sheath offers the best heat resistance for extreme temperatures. Offers high resistance to acids, alkalis, organic solvents, sea water, and steam.
Technora provides the highest level of abrasion and cut-resistance compared to other high tenacity fibers. Certified to NFPA 1983, 2006 edition, Escape rope.
