Safe Tec Duck-R
[DUCK-R]

£80.00

Safe Tec Duck-R

The S-Tec Duck has been designed by rope access technicians for rope access technicians.

It is answering the call of the competent rope access tech for a device they know how to use, complies to the relevant standards and above all, it works.

Rope Access device with a stainless steel frame & spring and aluminium cam, making it suitable for use as a backup device in a rope access environment. Designed as a compact back-up rope adjustment device for use on a back-up safety line when using industrial rope access abseiling techniques.

Normal working conditions 1person (100kg) max. capacity, however in rescue situations the manufacturer conducted additional testing outside the standard & this unit is reported to be suitable for 2 person load (200kg) max. capacity, conditions apply.

The Duck R comes factory fitted with a sewn cord for towing (short distances). At 4mm thick and 40mm long this has been designed to be just big enough to get a decent grip for towing whilst maximising the chance of release in an emergency.

Rope diameter: 10.5 - 11mm

The Petzl Shunt has been the rope access backup device of choice for years, however following Petzl's January 2012 statement regarding the use of the Shunt as a backup device it is becoming hard to justify their continued use.

Is the Duck R the new Shunt?

Well it certainly looks like one, however unlike the Shunt the Duck R is certified to EN 12841 Type A, making it suitable for use as a backup device in a rope access environment.

Also the Duck R is made from stainless steel, making it much tougher than an aluminium Shunt. After all the Shunt was designed as a sport device and was never intended for work use.

While there is no European standard for the use of backup devices in rescue situations the Duck R has been tested for use with a 200kg load, and S-Tech approve them for use in this manner.

The last word in towable back up devices is the Duck-R. It has been designed by rope access technicians for rope access technicians. It is answering the call of the average rope access tech for a device they know how to use, complies to the relevant standards and above all, works.

The S.Tec Duck-R is a back-up device in the style of the Petzl Shunt but in this case it works only on one rope and has been certified for use in work at height scenarios rather than as descent back-up when climbing or caving. It satisfies the requirements of EN12841:2006 Type A - for a Rope Adjustment Device on 11mm and 10.5mm EN1891 Type A Low Stretch Ropes

The SafeTec Duck-R can also be used as part of a system for On-Rope Rescue, and Rescue hauling and lowering.

The S-Tec Duck R is designed by rope access technicians for rope access technicians. It is answering the call of the competent rope access tech for a device they know how to use, complies to the relevant standards and above all, works. Made of stainless steel, the device can be used on a cow's tail. The cam face and geometry has been designed so the device slips at higher loads (though still well below the EN standard 6kN limit), meaning less slippage in a fall, reduced clearance distances and making it much more suitable for two-person rescue loads.

An industrial rope access back up device that complies to the EN12841 standard and is rated for a two person rescue load.

Conformance: EN12841:2006 Type A
