The Micron is a new personal micro-descender for Personal Escape. This tiny descender employs a unique, patented braking system to allow a finely controlled descent, and features an Auto-Locking “panic mode” if the handle is either squeezed too hard or released. The Micron is one of the most versatile escape tools on the market today. Compact size with “full size” functionality will appeal to many industries but in particular fire service, wind turbine, offshore, and tower. Its compact size makes it easy to carry on any harness.
