Safely manage the heaviest loads with the Fast Rope Descender, the first device that allows for the safe and speedy insertion of SAR teams, operators, and other units needing to descend a fast rope with heavier than normal loads. The FRD maximizes operator safety by providing additional speed control and a fixed attachment to the fast rope, reducing the loss-of-control risks associated with heavy descents. A quick detachment system lets the operator release the rope nearly instantaneously after touch down, allowing them to quickly clear the zone and proceed with the mission. The FRD can also be attached to heavy items separately, allowing them to be lowered individually from the operators. Items attached separately will maintain their connection to the fast rope until released by a team member, which is especially useful when inserting heavy items, such as inflatables, into the water.
