MAESTRO is a descender designed for technical rescue operations. It facilitates manipulation of heavy loads, for lowering or hauling, and may be used in both the primary system or in a back-up belay. This versatility allows rescuers toadapt to any situation they may encounter on the rescue scene. The ergonomic handle and integrated braking allow forcomfortably controlled descent. Shifting from lowering position to hauling position is immediate, without the need totransfer the load. The integrated progress-capture pulley has a large diameter sheave mounted on sealed ball bearings, ensuring excellent hauling efficiency. The AUTO-LOCK system automatically locks the rope when the handle is not in use. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle.
The MAESTRO S descender is compatible with 7/16" (10.5 to 11.5 mm) ropes and allows handling of loads up to 550 lbs (250 kg).
The MAESTRO L descender is compatible with 1/2" (12.5 to 13 mm) ropes and allows handling of loads up to 615 lbs (280 kg).
