Emergency evacuation device
The Derope emergency escape/controlled descent device enables the evacuation of one or two persons from an elevated position to a lower level or the ground at a controlled speed.
The Derope descent device can also be used for one man or two-man rescue operations. Victims can be lowered alone or accompanied by the rescuer following the standard procedures for rescue applications. If obstructions or obstacles prevent a vertical evacuation, the operation can be carried out down a cableway or tagline positioned at an angle between 30º and 60º.
