The Rocker is primarily used as a safety back-up in industrial rope access, fire service or technical rescue as a fall arrest device in the event of main line failure.
It can also be used as a rescue back-up device for two people as the Rocker has been tested for this purpose using a 200kg mass in a fall factor two scenario. The test was undertaken using an 11mm 32plait low stretch rope and a 1m sling. The maximum impact recorded was 5.7kN, with a slip distance of 1.10m.
The Rocker complies to EN353-2:02 EN358:99 and EN12841-A:06. We recommend it to be used with a 10 cm Rocker link sling with two Gator karabiners. This set up comes as a kit for use with the Rocker and we highly recommend it to be connected to the chest connection point on the harness. This would put the user in an upright position and is therefore compliant with fall arrest standards. It is for this reason it is also not recommended to be used with a long cow’s tail from the waist connection point of the harness.
This device can also be used in many other situations i.e. as a hauling/ pulley bake etc.
The Rocker was confirmed in the U.K. H.S.E. industrial rope access investigation into items of personal protective equipment as the best performer and to have the highest degree of consistency.
We strongly recommend that users be trained in use of the Rocker.
