Latchways PRDThe lightweight, unobtrusive PRD is an integrated harness system for self-rescue. In the event of a fall the device lowers the faller gently to the ground in a controlled descent.

The whole rescue process only takes a few seconds due to the Latchways engineering in the ‘back pack’ which contains:

  • A parachute type ‘rip cord’ that releases the descending system
  • A brake mechanism and spool with a 20 m (65 ft)* cord gently lowers the faller to the ground
  • A standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall zone

Mechanical integrity
The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts ensuring 100% mechanical integrity.

Ease of use
The patented Latchways componentry has been designed to fit neatly into the ‘backpack’ to ensure the worker can safely go about their daily work. It’s lightweight and unobtrusive but also robust, ensuring it can withstand the rigours of the harshest working environments.

The range
RH1—Single point harness (dorsal attachment)
RH2—Two point harness (dorsal and chest attachments)
RH3—Three point harness (dorsal, chest and work positioning waist belt attachments)
