Rollgliss R520 rescue and escape device

Friday, 01 February, 2013 | Supplied by: 3M Fall Protection



DBI-SALA’s Rollgliss R520 is a simple-to-use fully automatic controlled descent device with a dual-redundant braking system that provides a high degree of safety when using the descender.

Unlike friction-based descenders, it provides controlled descent self rescue regardless of the user’s weight for the evacuation of multiple personnel or the versatility of assisted rescue in both directions.

The second brake provides increased protection where, in the worst case scenario should one of the brake systems fail due to damage or wear, the second brake is able to hold the load, safely supporting the person to the ground.

The rescue and escape device can be used from heights of up to 150 m from elevated work platforms (EWP), towers, cranes, buildings or other heights.

Its compact size allows the unit to be attached to the rescue box of an EWP basket, crane housing or other suitable anchorage.

The system is suitable for use in a number of industries including: utilities, construction and maintenance, fire and emergency services and general industry.
