Ridgegear Rescue and Evacuation Kits
The VRS has been specifically designed to be used from the point of fall and not requiring the rescuer to go over the edge, which gives extra-added safety. When the faller is raised the rescuer has a 5:1 mechanical advantage which reduces the effort required. The upper pulley wheels lock when the faller is being lowered. This increased friction allows the rescuer to lower the faller effortlessly. A rescue pole is used to ‘fish’ for the fallers’ harness rear attachment point.
