The Tractel Derope emergency escape/controlled descent device enables the evacuation of one or two persons from an elevated position to a lower level or the ground at a controlled speed of 235 ft./min. (72 m/min.).

The Tractel Derope descent device can also be used for one man or two-man rescue operations. Victims can be lowered alone or accompanied by the rescuer following the standard procedures for rescue applications. If obstructions or obstacles prevent a vertical evacuation, the operation can be carried out down a cableway or tagline positioned at an angle between 30º and 60º.

The model incorporates a hand wheel winch mounted on to the base unit which allows the Tractel Derope descent device to be used as a lifting device. With a lift ratio of roughly 2:1, the winch is capable of lifting a victim in order to release it from its fall protection sub-system.
