The Catch is a towable back-up device conforming to EN 12841:2006 Type A. The device features a non–aggressive stainless steel cam which is spring loaded allowing it to be positioned on the rope while the user is working.
The Catch incorporates a patented Towable Release Mechanism (TRM). The TRM allows the user to tow the Catch whilst descending, yet will enable it to lock onto the safety line in the event of a main line failure or uncontrolled descent. The TRM has a unique function that will lock the Catch onto the safety line should the user panic and grip the device during an emergency.
The Catch has undergone extensive field testing, including real person main line failures and uncontrolled descents, ensuring our system offers a significant step up in safe working with towable devices.
For use on approved 11mm diameter ropes complying with EN 1891:1998 Type A or NFPA 1983 (2012), with a maximum lanyard length (including connectors) of 800mm. This lanyard can be constructed using dynamic cowstails, textile or wire rope.
