Unique, patented casualty recovery hauling device. Allows pulley system to be created at any point along a kernmantel rope.

British Safety Industry Federation innovation award winner.

Constructed of lightweight alloy with our trademark X-Cam™, designed specifically for industrial or professional use. Offers immediate purchase on the rope whilst minimising the potential for rope damage.

The X-Cam™ will continue to hold over 100 kg on a rope even in the extreme event of a sheath being ruptured.

The simplicity and compactness of the HURRICANE casualty recovery device compared with other traditional systems is a major advantage in allowing non-experts to achieve the lifting of a suspended casualty.

The device can be attached at any point along the rope, the lifting system can be remote from the casualty. The amount of rope required is reducing by around 70%.
