Capital Safety, the global leader in fall protection has announced the launch of their new re-designed DBI-SALA® NoWorries Double Stop Descenders. Belonging to the Rollgliss™ Technical Rescue range of products, the descenders have been upgraded for improved performance and tested to multiple standards to increase the descenders certification and use criteria.
While most changes to the device will be difficult to see, Capital Safety have substantially improved the performance of their NoWorries Double Stop Descenders, enhancements include: a more comfortable and ergonomic handle, smoother operation in descent, lower co-efficient of friction when up-hauling/belaying or using the device within a progress capture system, and increased efficiency when used on a slope or with lighter weights.
Additionally, testing to multiple standards has increased the descenders certification, ratings and use criteria. Constructed from aircraft grade aluminium the descenders are stronger and lighter, now featuring a 300 kg working load limit and an improved maximum descent of 200 metres.
“Building on a foundation of strength and durability we are pushing to exceed the expectations of our users and provide the best rescue products in the industry,” said Martyn Gilbert, Rollgliss Technical Rescue Sales Manager for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand.
The improved NoWorries Double Stop Descenders are available in two models to suit either 10.5-12.0 or 12.5-13.0 kernmantle rope. These versatile controlled descent devices are ideal for working at height or rescue applications.
