This week on Tech Pick of the Week at Rescue Response Gear, Luke Bryan breaks down the RAD technique. The Rapid Ascent/Descent technique facilitates quick and easy progression, positioning and change from a rope access ascent to descent. All of which is accomplished while maintaining an acceptable number of points of contact as recognized by SPRAT. Using a handled ascender, small pulley, a camming descent device, and a handful of carabiners, a technician can facilitate mechanically aided ascent to a quick changeover, which is free of the chest ascender to descent device procession.

For any information on the RAD system shown here or to purchase your own RAD system contact our technicians at www.rescueresponse.com or 888.600.9116
