Unique, patented casualty recovery hauling device only available only from heightec.

Constructed of lightweight alloy with our trademark X-Cam™, designed specifically for industrial or professional use and 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 compared with other traditional systems is a major advantage in allowing non-experts to achieve the lifting of a suspended casualty.  It is the only product to allow intuitive assembly of such a system.

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

Received innovation award by British Safety Industry Federation.
