Designed to replace current mechanical prusiks. ISC designed the RED to accommodate the safety needs of the rope access market. The RED will take on a two-person rescue load, is self-parking (rather than self-tailing) and is towable so as to be used with current web and rope lanyards. The RED’s cams have a positively locking spring which maintains the devices position on the rope. Another RED feature is the use of "rotational braking" When loaded, the RED rotates clockwise in relation to the main line creating friction resulting in a very effective automatic braking. Panic braking accomplished by pulling on the "Popper" break-away tow cord.
Rated capacity: 528 lbs (240 kg).
Peak loads under 6 kN. Self-Parking.
Compatible with RescueTECH 7/16” ACCESS Lifelines (other ropes may be tested on request).
