The ROTOR Tower Crane Rescue System is designed to rescue a fallen person or casualty at high elevation.

It enables the recovery of a casualty, who is unable to help themselves, from a tower crane cab, jib or ladder by lifting or lowering.

The system is specially designed to allow automatic self evacuation, giving limited maximum descent speed.

The compact ROTOR Tower Crane Rescue System comes complete with a durable 50L KARI transport bag (WLL 18 kg).

Complies with requirements of Construction Plant Association.

Although designed for construction it can be applied to industries such as warehouse and distribution with high bay access and very narrow aisles.
