Description

Petzl Rig Descender

The Petzl Rig Descender is a compact self braking descender, designed for use in rope access (expert users only)

Features:
Multi-functional handle allowing the user to use the device as either a descender or belay device
When used in descent mode, if the handle is released it will spring to the belay position thus 'failing to safe'
Users can unlock the rope, control the descent and position themselves on the rope with the hand on the free end of the rope i.e. it can be used like a Grigri whereby the rope will flow freely through the device in a controlled manner but will lock if there is an uncontrolled fall (The automatic return system on the handle limits risks in case of an involuntary action by the user)
The Rig has the same system of opening allowing the device to be fitted to a rope without removing it from your harness (using the moving side plate). This also helps when passing intermediate anchors
A pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope
Can also be used to make a reversible haul system, and for short ascents (in conjunction with a FOOTPRO foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp).

Difference between a Rig and an I'D
ID has 'panic function' where ID locks if someone pulls the handle too far in a panic (with a Rig the rope would continue to feed through the device)
If ID is threaded wrongly then it will lock whereas a Rig will not

Christmas / New Year Closedown: The Abaris team will be taking a well earned break over Christmas and New Year. We will be closed for business from Friday 22nd December, reopening Tuesday 2nd January. Orders placed after 3pm on Friday 22nd December will not be processed until Tuesday 2nd January; Stock items will be sent out for delivery on Wednesday 3rd January. We hope everyone has an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and wish you a happy and healthy New Year. 

We pride ourselves on our rapid service and aim to despatch all orders promptly. The majority of orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday are sent out the same day as the order is received and delivered the next working day - See below for information on timed and weekend deliveries (This is dependent on stock availability, we will contact you on the rare occasion something is out of stock). Orders to the Highlands, Islands may be a two day delivery and overseas will be longer. Please also note that our cheaper non-courier delivery (via Royal Mail) can take in excess of 3 days. For time-critical orders we advise calling us so we can process the order as a matter of urgency and confirm the delivery schedule. We cannot be held liable for any consequential loss caused by late delivery, or failure to deliver.

Please note that orders placed after close of business Monday to Thursday will be processed the next day. Orders placed after close of business on a Friday or at a weekend will be processed on the Monday.

If you opt for courier delivery you will receive an email or text on the day we dispatch your order informing you that it is enroute, and a further email or text at around 7:30am on the morning of the day of delivery, giving you a 1 hour window when your delivery will arrive.

For operating efficiency we reserve the right to send your order via courier rather than Royal Mail (you will not be charged any additional amount for this upgrade).  

Please allow slightly longer for the busier periods at Christmas and during the sales. All goods are subject to availability and in the event we are unable to supply your goods within thirty days you will be informed immediately and advised of the expected delivery date. Outstanding orders / items can be cancelled at any time. In instances where payment has already been made, an alternative or refund in full for the item(s) concerned will be given.

Timed deliveries / Saturday & Sunday deliveries
We are able to arrange timed deliveries (pre-1030am / pre-12) and deliveries at weekends (Saturday pre-1030am / pre-12 and Sunday anytime). Some of the timed delivery options are available via the website, for others including a Sunday delivery, please call the office for a confirmed price and to arrange the alternate delivery. Important Note: Timed deliveries are subject to stock availability (we will contact you if any of your order is not in stock so you can confirm if you would like us to split the delivery) and must be placed by 3pm Monday to Friday (after 3pm please call us as you may still be able to catch our couriers).

Low delivery charge guarantee
If you get to the basket stage of the order process and feel that our delivery charge is too high, then simply contact us and we will look to reduce this, possibly by opting for a slower delivery service (normal deliveries are next day - except for the highlands, islands etc)

Goods will be delivered, by our appointed carrier, to the address given by you on the order form. It is important that this address is accurate. In most instances the parcel will not be left without a signature.

Please provide us with a delivery address where the parcel can be signed for between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm. We are happy to arrange delivery to your place of work if this is convenient. We cannot be held liable for any consequential loss caused by late delivery or failure to deliver by our appointed carrier.
