Rollgliss R520 Escape SystemCapital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, introduces a new addition to the DBI-SALA® rescue category – the Rollgliss™ R520 Escape System. Fully automatic and hands-free, the Rollgliss™ R520 Escape System provides a quick, efficient means of evacuation from elevated work surfaces such as bucket trucks, aerial lifts, towers and cranes. Lightweight, compact and easy to use, the Rollgliss™ R520 represents the best escape solution on the market.

“A key element to fall protection is having a rescue plan. In most instances, the R520 can act as that plan,” said Jeff Martin, hard

goods senior project manager at Capital Safety. “Because it operates automatically and requires minimal training, it serves as a safer, more efficient alternative to manual descent systems. In emergency situations, workers won’t have to worry about panicking—the Rollgliss R520 does all the work for them.”

The Rollgliss™ R520 Escape System is ideal for anyone working at height that might need an escape device, especially in the utility, telecommunications and commercial construction industries. Its integrated rope ears allow for a controlled descent speed of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet per second and its dual redundant brakes offer added security, safety and peace of mind during an automatic descent.

The compact, user-friendly design of the Rollgliss™ R520 Escape System also features a bi-directional hub for multiple consecutive descents. Durable cast aluminum housing and steel snap hooks ensure optimum user safety even in the harshest of environments. The

Rollgliss™ R520 Escape System has been tested to meet applicable OSHA, ANSI and CSA industry standards. Stop by the Capital Safety booth (#O30100) to learn more.
