Gen-2 Derope Emergency Evacuation / Controlled Descent Device



For years, Tractel has been a leader in developing new technologies for fall protection in the Wind Industry. The evolution in emergency evacuation and rescue continues as Tractel introduces its second generation Derope emergency evacuation/controlled descent device.

After years of being the most popular and user-friendly rescue device in the industry, Tractel went to work making it better. User feedback, experience and new technology have driven the design of this new generation of Derope devices.

With an increased descent speed and twin exit hubs designed into the casing, the Derope GEN-2 is not only more efficient but it's more durable as well. Additional new features include: dual descent control pig tails, external cooling fins, integrated rope locking cleat and completely sealed brake housing which allows the Derope to be one of the few units on the market to pass the ridge wet and cold testing procedures of the Canadian Standards Association.

With optional features that include a crank handle for raising and lowering, and a ladder and tripod bracket, the Derope emergency evacuation/controlled descent device is truly the most versatile rescue unit on the market.
