Davy Descender - Descent-Controlled Escape System

Discontinued Product

This product has been discontinued.

Product Overview
The Davy Descender allows quick emergency escape from upper storeys or high work platforms by providing automatic, controlled descent. The unit operates by allowing a cable with a sling at each end to pass through a geared braking unit which controls the descent rate at a steady speed. Unlike other evacuation devices the Davy Descender has two evacuation slings. When one sling descends the second sling ascends allowing multiple evacuations to be performed.

FAQs (1)
Q. Can the Davy Descender be permanently fixed on an outside wall without any protection?

No, the Davy Descender can not be fixed on to an outside wall unprotected from the elements. It can be stored in a weatherproof box outside near to the anchor point, on a roof for example, and then removed and attached to the anchor point when needed.
