Descent Controllers

Originally designed as evacuation devices these devices lower the user to a fixed point directly below at a fixed speed of between 1.4 m/s and 2.0 m/second. Great fun to use but the landing position must be free from hazards. Certain units can be operated at an angle along a guide wire (Geronimo Lines) but again care must be taken in selection. Lifeline lengths vary from 20m up with the common lengths being no more than 60m.
