The Donut Safeland Personal Control Descent Device is a lightweight unit that is
designed for use in extreme emergencies as a last means of escape from high-rise
commercial, industrial, offshore/onshore or residential buildings. It enables the
user to escape by means of individual controlled descent once it has been attached
to a load bearing structure.
This patented device is a modification of the Donut system, which is the offshore
oil and gas industry standard method of personal escape. Donut was originally designed
and developed after the Piper Alpha tragedy in 1988, which claimed the lives of 160+
persons. It was originally developed with the cooperation of the UK regulatory authorities
and the North Sea operators as a means of escape from oil & gas installations. Over
80,000 successful descents have been made during training sessions with Donut.
