The RescuePack is the most simple yet versatile award winning self contained dedicated fall arrest rescue system available. Designed to recover a suspended person from almost any fall protection system by lowering or lifting.
RescuePack delivers a mechanical advantage for lifting of around 3:1 by the use of the stainless steel HURRICANE. Rope device can pay rope out but lock when a load is applied. Hook can attach to D ring or harness shoulder strap if needed.
Telescopic pole extends for 3.5 m to reach a casualty on an extended energy absorbing lanyard. The modified scaffold hook features a smooth modified gate profile to prevent snagging and ensures correct attachment to the casualty.
This fall arrest rescue system can be used in very constricted space and does not need anchor points to be placed in specific positions.
The kit is supplied unassembled, but can be requested at point of order if required.
RescuePack contents include:
HURRICANE pulley mechanism can be placed on the rope at any point for recovery.
- Unique, patented product available only from heightec.
- Alloy locking pulley for reliability and durability.
- Special cam X-Cam design is specifically for industrial or professional use and offers immediate purchase on the rope whilst minimising the potential for rope damage.
- Widely used in fire and rescue service and specially selected for use by all official UK Urban Search and Rescue Teams. Received innovation award by British Safety Industry Federation.
- 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. It can be attached at any point along the rope, even if it is loaded and the lifting system can be remote from the casualty, reducing the amount of rope required by 70%.
- 4 different functions: Life-lining – controlling a safety line attached to a rescuer, Lowering – remotely controlling a load, Hauling – self-locking load raising, Descending – self lowering of operator
- Operator is able to change from one function to another instantly, while rope is loaded and without adding additional components.
- Patented double-braking mechanism increases friction under heavy loading and reduces rate at which friction is released.
- Folding handle design prevents accidental operation due to interference or poor rigging.
- QUADRA is rated at 200 kg making it suitable for most rescue applications. It also has capacity to arrest a 250 kg load at fall factor 1/3 without damage to rope and retaining full function.
- It has been developed with and is extensively used by UK Fire Services and other industrial rescue teams.
The Rescue system also features the KARI 50 (B50) – from heightec’s new KARI range of tough, waterproof kit bags for storage and hauling. Designed specifically for work at height and rescue, the KARI transport bag range brings all the features of traditional dry bags but with increased protection. Different styles available for different functions – personal kits, rescue systems, rope, tool bags etc. View the full range here.
