Capital Safety DBI-SALA Rollgliss R550 rescue and escape device

Monday, 01 September, 2014 | Supplied by: 3M Fall Protection


Capital Safety has released the DBI-SALA Rollgliss R550 rescue and escape device, a compact, lightweight escape solution that is suitable for wind and mobile phone tower work, aerial lifts, cranes and more. It provides the choice of rescue, evacuation, or the versatility of assisted rescue with lifting capabilities.

With fully automatic, hands-free descent, the device is a safe, easy-to-use rescue and descent system that requires minimal user training.

The compact unit has a lightweight yet durable cast aluminium housing, and replaces its bulkier predecessor the R500 series.

It features integrated rope ears for greater descent speed control in assisted rescues and dual redundant brakes for added security and safety during automatic descent. The bi-directional hub design allows the rope to descend from either side, bringing one hook up as the other goes down, so that the system can be used for immediate multiple descents.

Rated for up to two persons, the device performs in a variety of situations, including an emergency descent or a full rescue with the built-in rescue hub model. Multiple rope length options up to 500 m make the device suitable for a variety of environments and rescue and descent applications.
