Capital Safety DBI-SALA Rollgliss R520 rescue and escape device

Monday, 21 January, 2013 | Supplied by: 3M Fall Protection



Capital Safety has released the DBI-SALA Rollgliss R520 rescue and escape device.

The descender is an easy-to-use, fully automatic, controlled descent device with a dual braking system that provides a high degree of safety. 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.

Available in a variety of lengths, each kit is pre-rigged and ready for use in the event of an emergency. The user simply connects the descender to an anchorage point, attaches the connector to their harness and lowers themselves to perform a hands-free descent.

The descent speed is automatically limited during the descent, adjusting to the user’s body weight, allowing for a secure and effective escape within seconds.

The configuration allows the device to operate in both directions - one end of the lifeline descends as the other ascends, readying the system for another rescue.

The device can be used from heights of up to 150 m from elevated work platforms (EWP’s), 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.
