Description

Petzl Rig Descender

The Petzl Rig is a compact self-braking descender, designed for use in rope access.

Designed for experienced rope access workers.

Easy rope installation, thanks to the rope guide and markings. Ergonomic handle allows the rope to be released and enables convenient control of the descent in two possible descent modes, on the side plate or in the V-shaped friction channel.

Auto-Lock system allows users to easily position themselves at the work station without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device, as soon as the user releases the handle, the rope is automatically locked in the device.

The automatic return system on the handle limits the risk of the device getting accidentally snagged, once blocked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle, allowing for easy short ascents, for example(by adding a Footape or Footcord foot loop and an Ascension handled rope clamp).

Key Features

  • Cam can be manipulated for taking up slack easily or for belaying a lead using climbing techniques.
  • Safety gate on the moving side plate allows the rope to be installed while the device remains connected to the harness, facilitating the passage of intermediate anchors.
  • Handle automatically switches to storage position when the rope is removed from the device, reducing the risk of accidental snagging when the descender is carried on the harness.
  • The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone.
