The D5 Work/Rescue Descender is suitable for industrial height safety, rope access, edge management, arborists and search and rescue.
It is a double-stop device with an auto-lock function which activates when the handle is released or as a panic brake. When loaded, the side plates cannot be rotated open due to the positioning of the karabiner and the push button safety closure. When setting up, the D5 Work/Rescue Descender is easy to attach or detach from rope without disconnecting from your harness. The rope can be back fed to allow smooth ascending or for emergency hauling when used as part of a 2:1 ‘Z-rig’.
A 360 degree rotating handle clicks when engaged to the mechanism. Suitable for use with 12.7 – 13 mm EN 1891 approved low-stretch kernmantle rope.
