Sale Price $2,606.75
The Rescue Positioning System (RPD) from DBI-SALA and Capital Safety is a simple solution for work at heights and confined space professionals that may need to secure themselves at a specific height for work or utilize a quick and easy rescue system, without the need for technical emergency rescue training.

The price shown is for the base RPD product. Rope length must be specified, and we have shown a few common lengths, with associated cost, on the drop down menu above.

Raising and lowering can be done by the user (a separate rope-gripping handle can be used to facilitate this), allowing them to easily find the correct working height they need, while a self-locking pulley can be activated to fix you in place for the duration of work. Meaning there is no need for an awkward and time consuming tie-off or anchorage equipment. A simple indicator clearly shows whether you are in ascent/descent mode or fixed position. And a built in speed sensing brake serves to arrest a fall should the operator lose control of the Rescue Positioning System.

The RPD from DBI-SALA is available in either 3:1 or 4:1 pulley ratio configurations. We are showing the price for the 3:1 only. Please inquire for pricing on the 4:1 ratio. Different ratios allow you to choose which is best and most efficient for you work site needs.

The whole system comes pre-rigged for quick 'out of the bag' operation and contains everything you need for quick rescue and retrieval or work positioning: RPD, connecting sling, hooks, rescue sling, pulley, and the durable nylon carrying bag. Simply attach to a suitable anchor point via the included carabiner or anchor strap and you are ready to go. (Please use a suitable piece of OSHA rated fall protection equipment (self-retracting lifeline or lanyard) as this device is for work positioning, NOT fall arrest.) No tools or special skills are needed for set-up and use.

The entire device is built to last, with corrosion resistant parts made from anodized aluminum and stainless steel, with a powder-coated housing making it perfect for almost any work site.

Perfect for work at heights or confined space access and retrieval or even emergency rescue work, there are many uses for this RPD: utility work (gas, oil rig and refinery), manhole access, tower painting, scaffolding and repair work, construction, roofing, tree care (arborists) - to name just a few.

Ordering Data for Rescue-Positioning Device Systems:
1. Specify Rope Footage as calculated below: For 3600000, multiply working travel length by 4 and add 10 feet.
For example, if you have a working length of 30 feet and wanted a 3:1 ratio, you would multiply 30 ft. x 4 and add 10 ft. to arrive at 130 ft. This would be part number 3600030.

Please Note: We have listed the most common sizes in the drop-down list. This unit can be made to any length. Please let us know if you would like a quote for a different size.
