Descenders

Singing Rock “SIR” Descender ($222.50 + GST)

Robust multipurpose device for use in industrial rope access

  • its functionality spans the range from rope descender and abseiling device through semiautomatic belay and fall-arrest device to work positioning device for use on roofs and edges
  • unimpeded movement of the cam
  • by pulling onto the working end of the rope the cam engages and jams the rope
  • by pulling the lever the cam gradually releases the rope
  • if the lever is pulled down to its terminal position the double-stop function is triggered which blocks the rope again
  • spring loaded pin for impeded swinging of the cam
  • easy and intuitive installation of the device onto the rope (watch the pictograms and read the instruction of use)
  • no hidden mechanisms for easy inspection
  • metal lever under all industrial conditions tested for 225 kg according to EN 12841 (rope access)
  • EN 12841-C: max. load 225 kg, with static rope 10-12 mm
  • EN 341-A: load range 30-180 kg (max. descent distance 190 m)

Petzl Rig ($299.00 + GST)

  • Designed for experienced rope access workers
  • Ease of use: – easy rope installation, thanks to the rope guide and markings – ergonomic handle allows the rope to be released and enables convenient control of the descent – two possible descent modes: on the side plate or in the V-shaped friction channel – Auto-locks when the user let’s go of the handle – once blocked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle, allowing for easy short ascents
  • Cam can be manipulated for taking up slack easily or for belaying a lead using climbing techniques – safety gate on the moving side plate allows the rope to be installed while the device remains connected to the harness, facilitating the passage of intermediate anchors, without removing the carabiner The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone.
  • Lowering of heavy loads up to 200 kg (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device at petzl.com )

Petzl ID ($383.00 + GST)

  • Multi-function handle allows the user to: – unlock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope – move more easily on horizontal or inclined terrain, thanks to the button on the handle – position himself at the work station without having to tie off the device
  • Anti-panic function activates if the user pulls too hard on the handle: it brakes and stops the descent automatically
  • Anti-error catch to reduce the risk of an accident due to incorrect installation of the device on the rope The shape of the cam is designed to improve rope glide when ascending
  • The gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates rope installation when passing intermediate anchors
  • Pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope. Can also be used to make a progress-capture haul system, and for short rope ascents
  • The moving side plate locks with a screw, allowing the I’D S to be integrated into rescue kits
  • Lowers heavy loads up to 250 kg (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device at petzl.com )
