The DRD rescue is the only EN 341:2011-compliant descender on the market that works on two ropes simultaneously. It may therefore be used for plain descents while eliminating the need for a back-up system. Besides that a wealth of double rope techniques such as hauling or controlling of traverse lines are possible.
However, rope access risk management approaches are increasingly orienting towards preventive measures in rigging set-ups and general integration of quick and easy solutions in rescue situations. In this respect DRD rescue’s particular advantage over comparative products is the ease of its operation when installed on an anchor. This makes it an indicated device when rigging for rescue is requested. Its smooth operation, high braking loads, perfectly equalized forces on both ropes, and the pressstop (anti-panic) make it a fool-proof and easily operated device that will solve most rescue situations without any hassle.
