An innovation in rope rescue! The MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. More than nine years of research and development went into the patented Multi-Purpose Device (MPD), which features major innovations in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals.
The MPD's high-efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism, allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems and be quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies on-scene rigging, expediting the rescue.
The revolutionary MPD increases user safety with:
The MPD is UL Classified as a pulley, descent control device and belay device. Variable-friction descent control device for rescue systems and rappels.
Incorporates a high-efficiency pulley with an integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system. Built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems. Allows main line and belay line rigging to be mirror images of one another in a DCTTRS.
Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising. Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line.
Meets BCCTR Rescue Belay Competency Criteria**.
The MPD comes with a padded Cordura nylon storage bag and User's Manual.
11 mm model is designed for and tested with 11 mm rope. 11 mm model UL rated 'T' Technical Use for descent control.
** The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue (BCCTR) Belay Competency Drop Test specifies a 1-meter drop onto 3 meters of kernmantle rescue rope with less than 1 meter of additional travel and less than 15 kN peak force.
For a Technical Use device, a 200-kg load and an 11-mm rope are used.
This webbing is specially built to commercial versions of military specifications. For all rigging uses: slings, anchorages, even hasty seats.

I'D Self braking descender with antipanic function. Multi-functional handle allows the user to: unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope; move more easily on horizontal or low-angle terrain, thanks to the button on the handle; and get into position without having to tie off the device. Anti-panic function is engaged if the user pulls too strongly on the handle : brakes and stops the descent automatically. Anti-error safety catch to reduce the risk of an accident due to incorrect installation of the device on the rope. The shape of the cam is designed to improve rope glide when ascending. The safety gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates installation of the rope when passing intermediate anchors. Pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope. Can also be used to make a reversible haul system, and for short ascents (in conjunction with a FOOTPRO foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp). The I'D L only is designed for rescue operations. Lowers heavy loads up to 250 kg for I'D S and 272 kg for I'D L (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device).
