The G-Saver II Retractable Fall Arrest & Emergency Retrieval Winch

The G-Saver II is a retractable fall arrest device incorporating a rescue winch to raise or lower a person to safety.


The G-Saver II should be used in fall arrest mode, with the winch mechanism disengaged, to protect a person from the danger of a fall. Should a fall occur, cable is pulled out of the unit at an accelerating rate. This quickly arrests the user and cushions the fall. The winch mechanism can then be engaged to raise or lower the person to safety. This eliminates the need for additional equipment to retrieve the user and also prevents the user from remaining suspended for extended periods of time, greatly simplifying the recovery process. With the suspended load removed and the winch mechanism disengaged, the cable retracts automatically back into the unit, regaining its fall protection function.

The G-Saver II retractable fall arrest and emergency retrieval winch is available with galvanized or stainless steel wire rope with lengths ranging from 7 to 34 metres.

The G-Saver II is both well proven and durable. It can be used:
1) As a fall arrester, with the reassurance that the user can quickly and easily be retrieved should a fall occur.
2) Mounted vertically above a user. in roofing and horizontal applications in conjunction with a suitable anchorage.
3) For confined space access when mounted on the G-Tripod or on a permanent anchorage device.
