Donut - Personal Escape Descent Control Device

The Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device is the ultimate safety system for an evacuee. It is ideal for escape from cruise ships, ferries and container carriers.

The personal escape control descent device offers the means of escape from very high structures, in hostile environments and ever-changing conditions. This compact and unrestrictive escape device is simple and secure.

Sea routes and waterways are becoming increasingly busy due to the worldwide demand to carry more passengers and freight for longer distances. This means that the Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device is becoming increasingly vital.

Marine vessel personal escape device

Marine vessels have special needs, including the requirements to achieve effective evacuation escape and rescue in a variety of scenarios. In particular, the following issues must be addressed:

  • Listing - causing conventionally mounted lifeboats to become inoperative
  • Smoke - affecting helicopter operations
  • Entrapment - at the bow end for entry into liferafts and the bridge wings or in the event of the main means of escape being rendered inoperative

The Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device is extremely effective in all these scenarios.

Liferaft-entry control device

It is virtually impossible for an evacuee to gain entry into a liferaft without the use of the Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device. This is due to the difficulty caused by adverse wind and sea conditions.

Industry-standard escape control device

With over 12,000 units sold and in service, the Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device is established worldwide as the industry standard.

ISO 9001-approved personal descent device
