As in elevated crane cabins, the technicians who service wind farms need a personal escape and rescue system to be used in case of an emergency. Because automatic descenders are heavy and expensive, a wind tower is usually provided with only one. To avoid the time delay when several people need to descend, personal escape systems using plastic rope and carabiners have been introduced. However, appropriate training from a tower is required to use such systems.
The EasyDown descender is simple to use and does not require any training.
