540 Rescue Belay

Finally a mechanical belay device specifically engineered for Fire Service and Industrial rescue teams!

The symmetric design of the 540°™ Rescue Belay allows bi-directional loading and locking, thus either end of the rope exiting the device may be used as the load line. This reduces the risk of an improperly loaded device and increases operator efficiency. The 540°™ Rescue Belay is UL certified to NFPA 1983 (2012 Ed) for General Use.
