Petzl Exo Eashook Self Evacuation Device

Petzl Exo Eashook Self Evacuation Device
The Petzl Exo Eashook Self Evacuation Device was developed following the desire of the New York Fire Department for firefighters to be able to self evacuate from windows quickly. Following tests of forty solutions from various manufacturers, Petzl's design was selected.

This is essentially a large hook, 15 metre special rope (different lengths can be made to special order) and the Petzl GriGri. The whole kit comes in a bag and weights 1.3kg

This device can be used in lengths up to 100m and has been tested on wind turbines.

Training is ESSENTIAL before this device is used - it cannot be seen as an easy solution for those not proficient in the techniques needed.
  • Used during an evacuation where possible anchor points have been identified
  • EASHOOK anchor carabiner is easy to manipulate
  • Technora (aramid fiber) 7.5 mm static rope, resists
  • abrasion and high temperatures
  • Self-braking system allows the user to:
- easily give slack
- control and stop a descent
- limit the force transmitted to the user in case of a fall
Nomex (aramid fiber) bag for transporting and attaching the system directly to the harness
