Not for sale individually.

The MICRON descender allows a person to make a controlled descent from high level with a unique, patented braking system featuring secondary panic lock.

The MICRON gives double action safety and fine control using pre-loaded, high strength, heat resistant Aramid cord. The 100% Aramid construction of MICRON cord gives increased performance at high temperatures over Aramid mixes. (Non-Aramid components melt sooner, leaving the cord with reduced strength).

The MICRON can potentially be used by anyone who works at height, but it has been specifically designed for the onshore and offshore wind industry.

Its compact small size (equivalent to 10 mm karabiner) provides full size functionality. The MICRON is lightweight and easy to carry on the harness as part of the full evacuation system.

The MICRON descender is only available to purchase in the Micron Evacuation System (D33***). Small and light, the system can be carried at all times and can be used for descent or to lower or raise a casualty.

Pre-threaded, complete with attachment karabiners and prompt sheet. Packed and sealed in durable storage bag.

Standard lengths available: 15m, 50m & 100m. Please contact us for bespoke lengths/systems.
