Products > The Davy Descender - Principle of Operation
line
  • dave-descender The Davy Descender comprises a patented geared centrifugal brake mechanism.

  • High tenacity polyester cable runs through the mechanism.

  • Slings are secured to each end of the cable.

  • Cable length is determined by the height of the unit above the landing level.

  • When not in use a reel is supplied to store the loose cable.

  • In use the reel is dropped to the ground releasing the cable.

  • The first escapee secures the sling around the chest under the arms.

  • Descent can then proceed at approximately 1 metre per second.

  • As descent proceeds the other sling ascends for the next escapee.
