NEW “PRODUCT EXPERIENCE”, A COMPILATION OF TECHNIQUES FOR USING THE I’D
Since 1999, the I’D has been an essential tool for rope access work, for rescuing coworkers, and for technical rescues. The “Product Experience” provides additional information to the technical notice. Based on field and laboratory testing, this information describes and analyzes secondary and complex techniques.
ROPE ACCESS AND CONFINED SPACE

Other possible uses, uses beyond the intended design, or other more complicated techniques are presented in the “Product Experience” section.
