The G.Saver II is a retractable fall arrest device which features a combined rescue winch for raising or lowering the user to safety, should a fall occur.
The G.Saver II should be primarily used in fall arrest mode with the winch mechanism disengaged, in order to protect the user from a fall. Should a fall occur, the steel cable is pulled out at an accelerating rate; when a speed of 1.5m/sec is reached, the braking system activates, thereby arresting and cushioning the fall. Once the fall has been arrested, the winch mechanism can be engaged so that the user can be either raised or lowered to safety. The G.Saver II eliminates the need for additional equipment to retrieve users and prevents them from being suspended for a long period of time, awaiting rescue by other means.
With the suspended load removed and the winch mechanism disengaged, the cable automatically retracts back in to the unit, regaining its fall arrest function.
The G.Saver II can be mounted vertically above the user or horizontally, in conjunction with a suitable anchorage point. It can also be used in conjunction with our G.Tripod.
