SkySaver’s BACKPACK is a self-contained portable escape system that anyone can operate to escape present danger. In the event of an emergency, one can strap on the backpack, attach the fire-resistant cable to a secure anchor point, and exit the nearest window. The highly tested and heavily engineered controlled descent system will automatically lower the user at a rate of about two meters per second down to safety. With three different models available (80, 160, and 260 feet), SkySaver enables anyone up to 25 stories high to descend to safety. No prior training is required to operate the backpack, which functions mechanically without the need for an outside power source.
