Petzl ASAP

The Petzl ASAP mobile fall arrester is the market leading back-up device for rope access systems. At moderate speeds, the locking wheel runs freely in both directions, following the user. However, when a rapid movement occurs, the wheel stops, pinching the rope between the wheel and the ASAP frame, thus stopping the user. The ASAP can also be used as a primary belay device in a fall arrest system.
