New Rope Access Products

Major developments in rope access

UK’s specialist height safety manufacturer heightec has announced the launch of three new products for the rope access industry.

The QUANTUM back-up device is a new, unique design, achieved through extensive research, continuous development and rigorous testing. It controls slippage with no rope damage, works on new or used rope, is suitable for two-person rescue and cannot be dropped. It is a step forwards in simplicity, strength, durability and performance and a significant advancement in safety for users.

The PRISM descender has involved years of development and refinement, resulting in a device that is not only multi-functional but offers a high load rating, with patented variable friction modes which can be switched between configurations under load and a double braking mechanism.

The X-Cam Pro™ is a new range of ascender devices which are a considerable improvement over “traditional” sharp toothed cams, have exceptional grip on varying conditions of rope whilst minimising rope damage. The X-Cam Pro™ range includes the PULSAR handled ascender and TWIST chest ascender for rope access.

Each product brings its own distinctive innovation with new functionality and ergonomic design. The new heightec range has been tested to loads exceeding industry standards and offers users major benefits without the need to change their existing work practices.

“Rope access is a major industry in the UK and overseas. With the number of man hours on the ropes increasing each year, safety remains high on everyone’s agenda. It is essential that manufacturers push forward safety innovations to ensure the risks involved with working at height are continually kept to an absolute minimum”, said Keith Jones, Managing Director.
