The IKAR Controlled Descent Rescue Kit provides rescuers with casualty lifting and remote reach capabilities.

This rescue kit has been designed to rescue workers in full body fall arrest harnesses suspeneded via a deployed energy absorbing lanyard, retractable fall arrest block or mobile fall arrestors for example. The IKAR controlled descent kit is supplied fully assembled in a kit bag making transportation to the rescue simple.

The IKAR Controlled Descent Rescue Kit contains:

  • IKAR ABS3WH controlled descent device with rescue lifting function
  • EN1891A 10mm kernmantle rope with small double action hooks at each end
  • 1m Webbing anchor sling
  • Small steel screw-gate karabiner
  • Extendable remote reach rescue pole
  • Rescue bag with clear document sleeve, shoulder strap & haul loop
  • Rescue instruction card

The ABS3WH devices have automatic speed regulation. The brakes are applied via centrifugal forces which maintain a constant descent speed. A crank handle can be activated to disengage the automatic lower off function, by turning this handle the casualty may be lifted. The casualty may then be lifted to the original work platform or raised only enough to sufficiently release the deployed fall arrest device. The automatic lowering function can be re-engaged to allow the casualty to be lowered off at any point. By using the lifting and releasing rescue method, the ABS3WH Controlled Descent Rescue Kits require no cutting of lanyards and are therefore “NO CUT rescue systems".

This rescue kit can be used whether the casualty can be reached by the rescue personnel or when the casualty is hanging in free space (below the rescue platform). The included remote reach rescue pole extends to a maximum of 307cm, the bracket holds the small double action hook terminated on the end of the rope in the gate open position. Once the rescuers hook locates in the casualty’s harness attachment point, the pole is removed and the connector safety gate closes.

This rescue kit is hard wearing, it has a shock proof aluminium housing; heavy duty plastic crank wheel and handle; and, offers an extremely low weight for the distance of rescue lower off available.
