MSA 68202-00L Latchways R20 Personal Rescue Device With Larges Harness Standard Size

Integrated harness system for self rescue.

Latchways has revolutionised the rescue process with the
development of the PRD—an integrated harness system allowing self-rescue. The lightweight, unobtrusive rescue device is contained in a small ‘backpack’ attached to a full body harness and is designed to be used in conjunction with a fall protection system or anchor point.

In the event of a fall the PRD harness suspends the user and then allows them to gently lower themselves to the ground in a controlled descent. The device features a 20 m (65 ft) spool of Aramid rope which is released at a controlled rate through an integral braking mechanism. The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts to always ensure 100% mechanical integrity.

The whole rescue process only takes a few seconds due to the Latchways engineering in the ‘back pack’ which contains:

• A parachute type ‘rip cord’ that releases the descending system
• A brake mechanism and spool with a 20 m* cord gently lowers the faller to the ground
• A standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall zone

Rescue benefits:
• Significantly reduces rescue time
• Always available
• Self-activated
• Intuitive use
