QUADRA rescue device with 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

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.

Inspection and cleaning is simple as all component parts of device are visible and accessible.

QUADRA rescue device 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. All load bearing components are stainless steel for corrosion resistance and reduced spark hazard.

Updated versions have improved threading and durability without changing performance or method of performance.

The QUADRA (D011) can only be threaded with the connector removed, which helps to prevent tampering. The QUADRA Rescue Device with opening sides (D012) allows threading while attached to an anchor point and is more suited to technical rescue.

It has been developed with and is extensively used by UK Fire Services and other industrial rescue teams.

Patented GB 2 367 048.
