Ferno FDU200 Descender

The Ferno FDU200 does not have a friction rack like the FDU100 so it's not suitable for 2 person rescue use.

The Ferno FDU200 is designed for personal rescue, emergency escape, rescue operations or specialised rope work.

It is a friction control, double stop, descending system, with a simple and soft moulded operator handle. The system starts releasing its load when the handle is moved towards the central position. Should a panic grab take place and the handle is pulled past the central position, the system locks up into the double stop mode. This mode will only be maintained with the force exerted by the operator, until a gentle release takes place. If the handle is let go, the system automatically locks.

Extensively tested and certified to AS/NZS 4488.1:1997 with 11 mm rope.
