Rig safety egress equipment inspires confidence in workers

The Ride Inc brochure features products critical to the energy extraction industryThe RIDE emergency egress system puts derrick workers safely on the ground in 30 seconds or less. RIDE is a versatile egress machine that doesn't require the worker to connect or disconnect fall protection lanyards during a stressful emergency situation.

In fact, workers remain connected to RIDE's derrick safety system at all times. When an emergency happens, all they have to do is turn around, step off the platform and onto the device. RIDE does the rest!

Thanks to patented magnetic braking technology, the speed of the descent is controlled automatically. This means even injured or incapacitated workers can safely descend from the derrick using Rigscape or they can be lowered to the ground on a stretcher attached to the device.

RIDE begins to descend when it is activated by the weight of the worker. Simply step onto the device and safely descend away from the derrick. As you near the ground, the magnetic braking technology automatically slows your descent for a smooth landing.  

Here's our International Brochure

Benefits of RIDE over other emergency egress devices:

  • No need to connect or disconnect lanyards during a stressful emergency situation
  • With automatic braking, there is no worry about braking too hard or descending too quickly
  • Rigscape can easily be used for multiple runs. Workers are encouraged to train on the machines as often as possible
    so using the device will become second nature, which could shave valuable seconds off their descent time during an emergency

RIDE Sells First Emergence Egress System In California

Congratulations to Signal Hill Petroleum of Signal Hill, California. ...

It's nice to see the ole T bar buggies are becoming ancient artifacts! Rig companies are seeing the light and protecting their most valuable asset - people! Been out to quite a few different rigs ( drilling and service) in my time as a toolhand and WSS, seeing a lot more of the RIDE units out in circulation.. Hats off to you! ...

~ Dave Elliott, Wellsite Supervisor

The Ride System certainly meets a specific need in the oil and gas industry and that is to evacuate a dangerous area rapidly and efficiently. I think it is unique. One of the selling points is that it is portable; you don't need a special crew to install it. With very little training one can get the crew operating the system immediately. The Emergency evacuation drills can be done daily and there is no cost to using the product over and over. It is an extremely efficient, self-contained unit. I recommend this to any company needing an escape from any elevated platform. ...
