The RIG descender is designed for expert professional rope access technicians. It allows the user to position himself and then easily stop where needed by using the handle to block the rope. This descender is compact and intuitive to use, making for smooth descents. With its innovative design and compact size, the Petzl RIG is a simple and effective alternative to more traditional descenders.
Petzl designed the RIG to perform the essential functions expected of a descender. Since it is better adapted for professional use, the Rig effectively replaces descenders like the GRIGRI and STOP.
This device is for users that already have considerable experience. For professionals that are still learning technical rope access skills, we recommend the I'D S descender, which has additional safety features such as an anti-panic function and an anti-error safety cam.
The Petzl RIG descender can be used in industrial and arborist settings, or to rescue a coworker in trouble (maximum load = 200 kg).
