Compact self-braking descender

RIG is a self-braking descender with a handle that enables convenient control of the descent. The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to quickly position themselves without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle. Easy to grasp, the descender is a simple, efficient alternative to traditional descenders.

Description

  • Ease and speed 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-LOCK system allows users to quickly position themselves without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device: as soon as the user releases the handle, the rope is automatically locked in the device The automatic return system on the handle limits the risk of the device getting accidentally snagged
    - once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle, allowing for easy short ascents, for example (by adding a FOOTAPE foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp)
    - cam can be manipulated to take up slack easily
    - 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
    - handle automatically switches to storage position when the rope is removed from the device, reducing the risk of accidental snagging when the descender is carried on the harness
  • The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone
  • Lowering of heavy loads up to 200 kg (more information on this technique in the product's Instructions for Use and in the technical advice at www.petzl.com)
