Rescue & Evacuation From Height Kits
Height Rescue Kits - Casualty Rescue Kits
All our Rescue Kits are designed to rescue a person left suspended after a fall from height, without the need for extensive training. Providing a fast efficient rescue - on average a rescue takes less than 10 minutes, all the casualty rescue kits can also be used for emergency evacuation (self rescue).
Our height safety rescue kits are designed to allow a rescue to be performed by a person or persons where rescue may not part of their usual job; for people who work at height using fall arrest systems rather than rope access equipment who do not have the confidence or expertise to perform a rescue while suspended from a rope. We offer rescue kits that allow the rescuer(s) to rescue the casualty without putting themselves in danger by having to descend to the casualty with abseiling kits that require rope access techniques.

Kits with and without an integrated system are available.
