heightec’s MICRON evacuation system is a high specification compact self evacuation system at a fraction of the size and weight of traditional systems.

This system allows a person to make a controlled descent from high level using the MICRON descender device which has a unique patented double action braking system, for fine control of descent speed.

The MICRON Evacuation System 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).

Potential use by anyone who works at height, but perfect for the onshore and offshore wind industry.

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

The MICRON system offers all the functionality of larger systems at a fraction of the size.

Aramid cord is high in strength and heat resistant.

Weighs 0.8 kg for standard 15 m kit.

Core components:

  • MICRON descender with pre-threaded Aramid heat resistant cord
  • Aluminium triple lock karabiners
  • Storage bag

NB: Storage bag varies depending on rope length.
