Twin Rope Systems

 

Twin rope systems are types of rappel rigging that offer 2 independent and isolated strands of rope available to rappel down to facilitate and move large groups of people down faster. While one person is rappelling down, another person is rigging her/his descender.

There are 2 types of Twin Rope Systems:

  • Static

    • Rappeler can not be lowered in case of emergency. A "conversion to lower" needs to take place in case of emergency
  • Releasable / Contingency

    • Rappeler can be lowered immediately in case of emergency
