For emergency situations the long descent PED evacuation device quickly and efficiently descends evacuees to a lower level point of safety. This version is specifically designed for significant height applications and is capable lowering over a distance of up to 450m. Once anchored vertically above the escape route operatives can connect a harnesses or rescue strop via a secure snaphook and release themselves over the edge to be automatically lowered to the ground.

The device is fully automatic and features a unique 'sea-saw' like mechanism with two connection points - as one rope lowers, the second rope is raised up becoming available for the next evacuee. This makes evacuations faster than a single rope device as it eliminates the time taken to retract the rope.

The descender mechanism boasts EN341 Class A approval capable of continuous operation and an indefinite number of descents at 1.2m per minute based on a 150kg load. To put the superiority of this product into perspective, the overwhelming majority of EN341 compliant descenders are approved to Class D, meaning they are for SINGLE USE ONLY — the PED, in contrast, remains fully reusable throughout the entirety of its service life. (see below for EN341 class specifications)

It also contains two fully independent descent brakes, providing instant backup in the unlikely event that one fails. Not only do they provide 100% percent safety, they also share the load equally, making for a much smoother descent.

With a body constructed out of heavy-duty cast aluminium and precision engineered corrosion-resistant internal components, STAR blocks are built for superior performance and service life. They’re incredibly hard wearing and easily withstand intense daily use in harsh environments – a far cry from the ‘use and replace’ ethos we’ve come to expect from many arrest block manufacturers.


By utilising highly optimised sub-modular assemblies the blocks drastically reduce maintenance and service downtime as well as your Total Cost of Ownership.
