The integrated harness systems' process literally takes seconds. Descent speed is between 0.5 to 2-m / 1.5 to 6.6-ft/sec. When a fall occurs, the system and harness arrest the fall, as normal. The faller uses a parachute-style release cord to activate descent. A 20-m spool and brake mechanism gently lowers the user to the ground in a controlled descent. Once safely on the ground the harness is easily released for quick exit from a fall zone.
PRD is always available. It requires no specialist training and is worn as part of everyday work wear.
