High Elevation Self-Rescue System -101SR

The Buckingham 101SR provides all the components required to self-rescue or if the need arises to rescue a fellow employee. The 101SR descender will automatically stop the user until the user compresses the handle allowing a smooth controlled descent.

*In compliance with the ANSI Z359.4 standard, PN 101SR series has a user weight limit of 130 to 310 lbs. when fully equipped.

*Outside of the ANSI Z359.4 compliance this system can be used as follows:

  • Exceptional cases like an accompanied descent (i.e. hurt man rescue): 440 lbs. (200 kg) maximum, when fully equipped. This method of rescue can only be used by rescuers specially trained in this technique.
  • Single person load of 420 lbs. (190.5 kg) maximum, when fully equipped and when used with an equivalently rated harness/accessories.
Available Lengths
  • 101SR-50 – 50′
  • 101SR-75 – 75′
  • 101SR-100 – 100′


An additional built-in (anti-panic) safety feature stops descent if the user compresses the handle too hard. This unit will allow the rescuer the advantage of lowering a hurt person with ease as well. The 101SR kit comes with retrofit rappelling straps that can be added to an existing harness for self-rescue.
