Self-braking descender with anti-panic function for technical rescue

The I’D L self-braking descender is primarily designed for technical rescue. It has an ergonomic handle that allows comfortable descent control. The integrated anti-panic function and anti-error catch limit the risk of an accident due to user error. The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to position themselves without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle. The safety gate allows the rope to be installed with the device remaining connected to the harness. I'D L is compatible with 12.5 to 13 mm ropes and allows handling of loads up to 280 kg.
