The DBI-SALA Rollgliss® R250 rescue kit has been designed as a peer rescue system for use in industrial environments.

It is to be used by the rescuer(s) to remove a person from danger without putting themselves at risk by descending to them.
Unlike many industrial rope access rescue systems the Rollgliss® R250 rescue kit is easy to operate allowing everyone to use it, no specialist rescue skills are required. The rescue does not involve the use of complex knots or knives – making it an even safer system.
