The Rollgliss™ R500 offers the choice of controlled descent rescue, evacuation or the versatility of assisted rescue with lifting capabilities. This state-of-the-art, fully automatic controlled descent device sets new standards of performance and safety in the rescue market. The system excels in handling, technology, function, safety and versatility – even under the most difficult conditions. The R500 is the result of 50 years of experience in the manufacture and practical use of safety and rescue systems, and has been examined and tested in adherence to the very latest global regulations.
The Rollgliss™ R500 provides quick and safe operation with superior technology and design. The system can be used for rescue and evacuation from heights up to 1,000 ft. (300m) for one user 310 lb. (140kg) or 330 ft (100m) for two users totaling 550 lbs. (248kg). It features 9.5mm super static kernmantle rope, and is configured with connecting hardware at each end of the lifeline. This configuration allows the R500 to operate in both directions - one end of the lifeline descends as the other ascends readying the system for another rescue. During assisted-rescue scenarios, a fallen worker can be attached to the R500 device, raised to a point that allows their fall arrest device to be removed, then lowered to the ground safely.
