As an integrated harness system, PRD conducts the entire process in seconds: When a fall occurs the fall protection and harness incorporated into PRD arrest the fall as normal. You use a parachute-style cord to activate the descent system. A 20-m spool and brake mechanism gently lowers you 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 worn as part of everyday work gear. It is intuitive and requires no special training.
