Work at height – SafEscape Elite

Miller by Sperian has launched SafEscape ELITE, a new descender and lifting device, which, says the company, operates reliably, even in the harshest conditions and fully complies with the new EN 341:2008 standard for rescue devices.

The company says SafEscape ELITE is straightforward to operate. The design and position of the hand wheel is said to reduce swaying during lifting, while an integral centrifugal brake ensure the descent is smooth, vibration-free and, at 1m/s, rapid. The device also has a wide operating temperature of – 30˚C to +60˚C, allowing it to be used in all climactic conditions, says Miller by Sperian.

The device is said to feature robust construction and is manufactured from materials that are highly-resistant to corrosion and degradation. As a result, points out Miller by Sperian, re-certification is needed only after seven years, thus reducing both out-of service time and total cost of ownership.

Described as ideal for use in rescue situations on wind turbines, antennae, highvoltage transmission towers and cranes,

SafEscape ELITE is offered in three versions: without hand wheel, with hand wheel, and with both hand wheel and ladder bracket. A wide range of accessories is also available.
