Rescue and Descent System
Capital Safety has introduced the Rollgliss™ R550: a smaller, more lightweight escape solution. Offering fully automatic, hands-free descent, it is a safe, easy-to-use rescue and descent system that requires minimal user training. Made with lightweight yet durable cast aluminum housing, the Rollgliss R550 features integrated rope ears for greater descent speed control in assisted rescues, and a dual braking system for added security and safety during automatic descent. The bi-directional hub design allows the rope to descend from either side, bringing one hook up as the other goes down, so that the system can be used immediately for multiple descents. Rated for two-person loads — a total of 620 pounds — the product performs in a variety of situations, including an emergency descent or a full rescue using its built-in rescue hub. The Rollgliss R550 meets all applicable OSHA and ANSI industry standards. For more information, visit www.capitalsafety.com.
