The Petzl EXO Personal Escape System provides firefighters with a fast, reliable means of escape from a burning structure. A firefighter trained and equipped with the EXO system can quickly deploy the unique anchor and rope, then move rapidly towards an egress point and descend to a lower level.
The self-braking EXO device can help prevent the firefighter from falling or losing control of the rope, allowing him to concentrate on getting out of the building.
In a last-resort scenario, the EXO's advantages of speed, adaptability and self-braking function offer the best possible means of escape.
