ISC RAD Rope Adjustment Device

Categories: , Tag:


The ISC RAD (Rope Adjustment Device) is a multi-functional device which can be used as part of a work-positioning lanyard. The ISC RAD can also be used for ascent, descent and work positioning/restraint, belay and progress capture.

Unlike some other positioning devices such as the Petzl Grillon, the RAD can also be used as a Descender. The RAD also features an all metal construction with no plastic parts making it very robust.

The ‘squeeze style’ device makes smooth adjustment easy and the spring-loaded flip down handle allows easy use, especially in descent mode.

The RAD is CE certified as a system, which is available in a range of lengths, with a choice of connectors. The RAD can also be supplied as an individual device without rope which can be fitted with a choice of rope and connectors.

The latest version of the RAD features a swinging sideplate function. The side plate can be either fixed in place with a screw (to comply with lanyard related standards) or by removing the screw allowing the front plate to be swung open to make it easier to attach to the middle of a rope. The swinging side plate function is particularly useful when the device is used in descent applications.
