The DBI-Sala Rollgliss R500 rescue and escape device provides fast and safe rescue for a wide range of work areas.

The system offers controlled descent, self-rescue, emergency evacuation and assisted rescue with lifting capabilities. The fully automatic device is versatile and durable. To ensure quick and safe rescue, it features controlled descent speeds of 0.6 to 0.9 m/s. The device’s bidirectional design allows one end of the lifeline to descend while the other ascends to prepare for another rescue. The compact and lightweight device can be positioned and installed quickly and easy operation enables efficient and effective rescue.

The device provides emergency rescue and evacuation from a wide range of elevated work areas in a fall protection environment. The versatile system is suitable for self-rescue, multiple evacuations and assisted rescue during wind turbine, utility pole and tower construction and maintenance; and for industries such as offshore and land-based oil drilling, fire and emergency rescue, government and military operations and commercial construction.

The optional lifting wheel helps facilitate safe assisted rescue from a distance.

For maximum durability and performance, it is designed with high-quality and corrosion-resistant materials, as well as 9.5 mm super static ‘kernmantle’ rope available in 10 m increments. The rope is configured with connecting hardware at each end of the lifeline for bidirectional rescue. The system can be used at heights of up to 300 m for a single user weighing 140 kg or less, or 100 m for two users totalling 248 kg or less. The system is available as a stand-alone descender unit, or in a convenient kit form.
