Escape Route Number 2 or the Rapunzel Decending Device

I’m not sure i could trust this evacuation device because i know i certainly wouldn’t be able hold my own weight whilst being lowered down six stories. That said it does look very god damn cool and i’d love to see someone else give it a go before i gave it a go.

The Rapunzel could easily be mistaken for a canister of just about anything, but in fact its an easy-to-use safety-descending device. Designed by SADI student Sin Sun Ho, this safety line can be used in highrise buildings. You more or less have to glide down the side of a wall (Batman style), holding onto its secure wrist capsule design.
