Latchways Personal Rescue Device Harness RH2
The lightweight, unobtrusive PRD is an integrated harness system for self rescue. In the even of a fall the device lowers the faller gently to the ground in a controlled descent. The RH2 is a two point harness (dorsal and chest attachments).
The whole rescue process only takes a few seconds due to the Latchways engineering in the ‘back pack’ which contains::
- A parachute type ‘rip cord’ that releases the descending system
- A brake mechanism and spool with a 20m (65ft) cord gently lowers the faller to the ground.
- A standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall
The Latchways PRD consists of a full body harness and integral descender device that conforms to all the required standards
The harness conforms to:
EN361 : 2002
ANSI Z359 . 1 .2007
