FrenchCreek R50G 3-Way Tripod Rescue Winch and Lifeline
The R50 Series Unit is a self-retracting lifeline capable of raising and lowering for rescue or retrieval. It can be used horizontally. If a worker slips or falls, the breaking system engages and the fall is arrested. The system can then be activated into retrievel mode, raising or lowering the worker to safety.
The R50 also has a friction brake that prevents the crank handle from free-wheeling while under a load. The R50 Series units come equipped with a bracket to fit FrenchCreek's TP7 Tripod, TP9 Tripod, FCPD300 Davit System, and the FCPQ200 Quad Pod System. The unit also includes a #45 split pulley and carabiner for attaching the lifeline to an anchor such as a tripod.
