Redefine Rescue with 3M and Latchways, Personal Rescue Device (PRD)

The PRD was designed by Latchways to redefine rescue plans and allow self-rescue by any worker at height. Traditional rescue plans are often complicated, dangerous or costly – bringing a standby rescue team or in-house rescue team up to the victim and to a potentially precarious situation.


3M Fall Protection System: Look Down and Pull

Imagine a rescue plan for every worker at height that is as simple as, "Look down and pull". Combined with the 3M Elavation harness, the Latchways PRD allows self rescue and brings the victim down to safety.


Lightweight, Reliable, Integrated Fall Protection System

The PRD solution works seamlessly with the 3M Elavation harness, fitting neatly inside a "backpack" ensuring workers are protected, not inhibited by their fall protection equipment. This lightweight and reliable solution is proven to withstand the rigors of the harshest working environments.

  • Incredibly simple rescue plan: Look down and pull
  • Rescue from 65' completed in 27 seconds
