Used in high and low angle rope rescue, Roller All Terrain (RAT) - patent pending - locks into six different positions. Made with an anodized aluminum frame with aluminum rollers with oil bronze bearings turning on 3/4" hardened steel bolts, it can close around objects as small as 3" to an 18" beam. The high/low rope rescue equipment helps protect your rope and make it safer as you raise/lower your position. Made right here in the USA with High Strength components, this was built to last!
Why the RAT was invented: In 2014 a few of us from our department went to Winter Fire School (held by PRI) and took High Angle Rescue class with the same company that did our grain rescue class. During that class we used several different types of rope protection to go over the handrail of the tower for raise and lower operations. They asked if I could come up with a roller that would be more versatile and adaptable to different situations.
