The Prism™ descender is a completely new product which offers great functionality to rope access workers. It contains two new patented principles; a mechanism which multiplies the braking force applied by the user providing fine control, and a new design of a secondary brake which minimizes the possibility of uncontrolled descent. An additional capability of this device is the ability to unthread the secondary braking system, which allows the rope to be easily pulled back through the device during short ascents.
