Red Back Up Device With Tow Cord

The RED is a simple, yet highly effective back-up device that is designed for two person loads.±The non-aggressive Cams have a positively locking spring, which means that the device is self-parking (rather than self-tailing, like many Rope grabs). This self-parking function is important for Rope Access work techniques as they stipulate that the back-up device should be positioned so as to reduce fall factors to a minimum.±The RED makes use of 'Rotational Braking'- the more the device rotates clockwise, the greater the build up of friction, which provides the automatic braking in the event of a fall or sudden pull on the Cows-tail. ±To increase the effectiveness of the Rotational Brake in a panic situation (for example, a main-line failure), the RED is fitted with a 'Popper' tow cord release clip.±Standards: CE EN 12841 and ANSI Z359.1
