Skylotec Sirius

The Sirius, a Compact, All Metal Descender

The Skylotec Sirius is a compact & durable self-braking descender. The Sirius has been manufactured out of 100% metal for increased durability, eliminating wear-vulnerable synthetic parts and increasing service life.

The ergonomic compact design fits perfectly in the hand and the auto-returning operation level has a small radius of motion so that you can work faster and more accurately. Ease of use is further facilitated by the intuitive route of the rope through the device, ensuring that it is protected from twisting and kinking, and from excessive wear and tear.

The Sirius is designed for working on fixed ropes and features a sturdy safety catch on the swing plate. It is approved for use with rope diameters of 10 to 12mm and allows handling of loads up to 250 kg.

We recommend the Skylotec Sirius for rope access technicians, tower workers and rescue personnel.

Features of the Skylotec Sirius include:
  • A short radius activation lever for fast and accurate work positioning
  • An anti-panic function that engages if the user pulls too hard on the handle
  • That slack can be pulled through the device without having to unlock the handle
  • The ability to load rope in and out of the device without having to disconnect the device from the harness
  • An auto-lock feature allows the device to be locked off without having to tie off
  • The rope route through the device prevents twisting and kinking of the rope
  • The compact & durable all metal construction.

Please note that adequate training and judgment are needed to reduce the risks inherent in the use of this equipment. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the user is adequately and competently trained in the use of this product. We strongly advise that you do not use the Skylotec SIRIUS without first undertaking appropriate training.
