Wednesday, 30 May 2018 | Admin
Introducing The "EGO" Heightecs new descender, designed to be used for rope access.
It has a progressive second brake which is intuitive for users unlike devices that trip out. It is alot easier to use in harsher work enviroments e.g. slopes, grit and muddy ropes.
The mechanism cover is fully accessible to allow for inspection, cleaning and servicing, prolonging the usable life of the device.
Choice of tail rope positions for different uses: In line (over stainless braking surface) reduces rope twist on long descents and increasing device longevity on dirty ropes. OR Over front plate similar to other devices.
The EGO Descender has a 200kg load rating, which allows for a two person rescue.
All in all, the Ego looks like a great descender, for more information head on over to the following product page: https://www.angloaccess.co.uk/descenders/heightec-ego.html
