The A-B Descender is designed for industrial rope access, technical rescue and intervention. It has a rated maximum load of 300kg, suitable for 2 people & kit.
The handle can be used in squeeze-to-go mode, or can be flipped down for extra leverage and more precision. The handle is spring loaded to return to the storage position when not in use.
The A-B features a Panic Grab Brake (PGB), which may be disengaged if the user requires a fast descent (e.g. Intervention).
The A-B conforms to EN12841-C as a stand-alone rope adjustment device (descender). It also conforms to EN341-B (descenders for rescue), which is for use as part of a system and must be used with the type of rope with which it was tested.
