The new advanced EGO descender device from heightec is designed for the rope access industry.
The EGO incorporates a number of safety features:
Threading protection – The EGO has been designed to address any potential risk of mis-threading no matter how the device is orientated.
Rope conditions – It operates on a range of rope conditions, whether working in dirty environments or on old rope. It can also be used on slopes or over edges due to its progressive second brake.
Controlled rescue – The 200kg high load rating is significantly greater than other designs, allowing for a 2 person rescue without the need for extra friction resulting in a quicker safer rescue.
Safer changeovers – The handle design enables it to be safely locked and out of the way when carrying out changeovers in ascent.
Durability – The EGO is quick and easy to inspect, service and clean. If necessary, the mechanism can be accessed for inspection and cleaning, prolonging the usable life of the device.
