RIDE Inc (Rapid Industrial Descent Equipment)


Offers the fastest & simplest way to escape any configuration of drilling rig platform


  • No struggling to connect or disconnect lanyards in a critical situation
  • Because the worker is always tied off to the Rigscape Shuttle - and nothing else - escape is simple & immediate
  • If an injury were to occur prior to escape, the weight activated release & the automatic braking system will get the worker to the ground quickly & safely, even if he can't sit up.
  • The Rigscape is designed with a patented braking system that allows the Shuttle to travel away from the platform at upwards of 22 ft/sec, automatically slows as it nears the ground and allows a soft landing for the worker
  • Rig in/out can be done in as little as 15 minutes

Overhead fall arrest & working lanyard are connected from worker to the shuttle as a complete system & never to the rig

The Rigscape Difference

Our patented magnetic braking system is designed for multiple runs:

  • Workers gain confidence in the escape system through repeated training opportunities
  • Safety drills can be performed on a regular basis to instill a instinctual response during an emergency situation.

Simply Step Off & Sit on Seat
Ground anchor also serves as a storage container

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! ...

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. ...
