Pure Safety Group’s Checkmate brand has unveiled the MAX 300 Descender, a versatile constant rate descender. Models are available for both automatic hands-free operation and multiple descents with advanced rescue functionality, as well as a power-assisted option (separate Checkmate approved drill required).
MAX-300 models are multiple user devices, with a maximum inclusive user weight of 660 pounds. The patented device is designed to be used attached to the anchor point in regular mode of operation or in an inverted mode, attached to the user or casualty.
The device is completely symmetrical, allowing full use of all functions regardless of the direction the MAX is running. This also gives full functionality for each multiple descent or rescue.
