Product Update: D2 & D4 Descenders
We are pleased to announce two product updates, relating to the D2 Personal Escape Descender and to the D4 Work/Rescue Descender.
D2 Personal Escape Descender
We have introduced a rolled-edge rope feed, bringing the D2 in line with other descender in the range. The new design allows the user to feed the rope over the rolled edge, allowing a greater degree of friction control.
D4 Work/Rescue Descender
The D4 now has a new, longer handle for improved grip and comfort. The longer handle also provides more leverage, and offers improved control of loads. The handle is made from Forged Aluminium and is hard Anodised, offering improved strength and wear resistance.
We have also made a 30 degree adjustment to the handle positioning, to offer improved ergonomic handling and control. Please click the D4 Product Update download (below) for more information on handle function.
The top bobbin of the D4 is now made from a harder grade Stainless Steel material, which provides superior wear resistance.
We are also due to release a new, more comprehensive D4 Descender User Instruction Manual, detailing a multitude of uses. The latest User Instructional Manual has been developed in line with feedback from numerous industry groups.
