Helix Personal Escape System (PES)

The Helix Personal Escape System is a modular, lightweight and low volume micro rope system that gives users the capability to quickly descend or egress from a position. The system can be used for both personal descent, and to lower a single operator or load. This system has been specifically designed for military, law enforcement and emergency personnel to perform an emergency escape across all environments and operational theatres. The system has been designed for fast deployment, intuitive to use and have minimal training burden.

The system contains the necessary equipment to do the following: 
  • Construct anchor points in a wide number of environments using a minimal amount of equipment. 
  • Protect the rope from damage. 
  • Descend or lower personnel up to 23m.
  • Ascend the rope.
The descender and rope have been certified to EN341:2011/2D European standard for descent systems and ANSI Z359.4-2013 American standard for fall protection and fall restraint and has also passed additional, harsher testing that simulated worse case scenarios with heavily laden operators.

Standard lengths include a 10m training system, 23m, 50m and 100m. Bespoke lengths are available.
