RED Back-up Device (No Cord)

Price: $0.00
Part Number:RP890A1

The RED is a simple, yet highly effective back-up device. The RED's non-aggressive Cams have a positively locking spring, which means that the device is self-parking (rather than self-tailing, like many Ropegrabs). 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.

Other Versions: To increase the effectiveness of the Rotational Brake in a panic situation (for example, a main-line failure), the RED can be fitted with a 'Popper' tow cord release clip. For further information on the Popper clip version, see RP892A1. For the Fixed Cord version, see RP891A1.
