In the event of a fall from height, the Personal Rescue Device — integrated into a full body harness — will not only arrest the fall, but lower the user safely to the ground in matter of seconds by the activation of a parachute-style rip cord.
The PRD is a lightweight, unobtrusive unit that attaches simply to a standard harness, making it an essential part of workwear for everyday working at height. In the event of a fall the user is able to activate the device by pulling a ‘rip cord’ lowering them self gently to the ground in a controlled descent.
The PRD has been designed with the aim of reducing the complexity of the entire rescue process, through innovative, design technology. There are a number of factors that make this product suitable for use in a wide range of industries such as:
Minimal Training & Fast Rescue
Unlike all other rescue devices no specialist training is required as the unit is worn as part of a standard harness, with a built-in 20 m length of line, and the rescue process takes only a matter of seconds.
The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts ensuring 100% mechanical integrity which is defined by the design standards the PRD meets and exceeds.
The simplicity of the PRD’s operation and effectiveness in overcoming this well known issue has been recognized within the industry resulting in Latchways winning the following awards:
