Personal Rescue Device (PRD)
Self-Rescue Kit & Controlled Descent Device
FLS has revolutionized the rescue process with the introduction of the Personal Rescue Device (PRD) which utilizes innovative design technology. The lightweight, unobtrusive PRD is contained in a small “backpack” attached to a harness. In the event of a fall, the device lowers the faller gently to the ground in a controlled descent. The PRD is built into a standard safety harness, which can be supplied by FLS or retrofitted into an existing harness.
Due to the engineering in the “backpack” rescue device, the entire rescue process only takes a few seconds. Our PRD kits feature:
- A parachute type “rip cord” that releases the descending system
- A brake mechanism and spool with a cord, available in 50′ or 100′ lengths, gently lowers the faller to the ground
- A standard harness that can be easily released allowing quick evacuation from the fall zone

The innovative design uses quality componentry and a limited number of moving parts ensuring 100% mechanical integrity which is defined by the design standards the device meets and exceeds.
