Heightec Quadra Rescue Life-lining and back-up device
Heightec Quadra Rescue Life-lining and back-up device has four different functions
Life-lining - controlling a a safety line attached to a rescuer
Lowering - remotely controlling a load
Hauling - self locking load raising
Descending - self lowering of operator
The operator is able to change from one function to another instantly, while the rope is loaded and without adding additional components.
Patented double braking mechanism increases friction under heavy loading and reduces rate at which friction is released.
Inspection and cleaning is simple as all component parts of the device are visible and accessible.
The Quadra rescue device is rated at 200kg making it suitable for most rescue applications. It also has the capacity to arrest a 250kg load at fall factor 1/3 without damaging the rope and retaining full function. All load bearing components are stainless steel for corrosion resistance and reduced spark hazard.
More recent versions have improved threading and durability without changing performance or method of performance.
The Quadra (DO11) can only be threaded with the connector removed, which helps to prevent tampering. The Quadra rescue device with opening sides (DO12) allows threading while attached to an anchor point and is more suitable to technical rescue.
The Quadra has been developed by and is extensively used by UK Fire and Rescue services and other industrial rescue teams.
