The ABS3WH device has automatic speed regulation. The brakes are controlled by centrifugal force which maintains a constant descent speed. An integral crank handle can be activated to disengage the automatic lower off, and by turning the handle the lifting facility is gained. The casualty can then be lifted to the original work platform or once the casualty has been raised sufficiently to release the used fall arrest device, the automatic function can be re-engaged to allow the casualty to be lowered. By using the lifting and release rescue action, the ABS3WH Rescue Kits are “NO CUT” rescue systems.
These rescue kits can be used where the casualty can be reached by the rescue personnel and also when the casualty is hanging in free space below the rescue platform. The remote reach rescue pole extends, and the bracket holds the double action hook on the end of the rope in the gate open position. Once the hook locates in the casualty’s harness, the pole is removed, and the safety gate closes and automatically locks.
These low maintenance devices have a hard-wearing, shockproof aluminium housing, heavy-duty plastic crank wheel and handle, and offer extremely low weight for the distance of rescue lower off available.
