Combining world class engineering and design, Latchways have succeeded in offering the market a range of products that redefine what is expected for working safely at height.
The launch of the Latchways Personal Rescue Device (PRD) is a prime example of this. The PRD is set to revolutionise the rescue process, which traditionally
has been a concern for all those that are responsible for staff working at height. The PRD is a lightweight, unobtrusive unit that attaches simply to a standard harness making it an essential part of workwear for everyday working at height.
In the event of a fall the user is able to activate the device by pulling a rip cord lowering them self gently to the ground in a controlled descent.
The PRD has been designed with the aim of reducing the complexity of the entire rescue process, through innovative, design technology. There are a number of factors that make this product suitable for use in a wide range of industries such as:
Minimal Training & Fast Rescue
Unlike all other rescue devices no specialist training is required as the unit is worn as part of a standard harness, with a built-in 20 m length of line, and the rescue process takes only a matter of seconds.
The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts ensuring 100% mechanical integrity which is defined by the design standards the PRD meets and exceeds.
The Complete Fall Protection Solution
Latchways ensure your fall protection requirement is covered by one single manufacturer, simplifying the risk assessment and rescue plan. Latchways can advise on the anchorage structure, specification, installation and maintenance.
