Rescue system for vertical rescues of a suspended person by lowering/lifting.

Learn More

The RescuePack Reach is the most simple yet versatile award winning self contained dedicated fall arrest rescue system available. Designed for vertical rescues of a suspended person from almost any fall protection system by lowering or lifting.

RescuePack Reach 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.

The RescuePack Reach contains the Xtendr compact locking extendable rescue reach pole with large attachment hook. The telescopic pole extends for 3.7 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 easy attachment to the casualty – essential in cases of suspected suspension intolerance when speed is vital. This method of casualty attachment does not rely on being able to clip a specific attachment ring on the casualty. High strength, heavy duty design is rigid when fully extended, with sturdy locking mechanism and unique quick release bracket. Non-conductive.

This fall arrest rescue system can be used in very constricted space and does not need anchor points to be placed in specific positions.

RescuePack Reach contents include:

QUADRA rescue life-lining and back-up device has four 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

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.
  • 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%.
