SkySaver, a portable escape system allowing users to safely scale down buildings during fires and other emergencies, has announced its official launch in the U.S. market. Former Lieutenant General of the Israel Defense Forces, along with other safety and security experts, created SkySaver after discovering that roughly 494,000 structure fires occur each year in the U.S., causing thousands of fatalities, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
The SkySaver rescue device works by the user first installing an anchor point, strapping on the lightweight backpack and clicking the belts together at the chest area, and attaching the fire-resistant cable to the secured anchor point. The user then rappels out of the nearest window at an automatic descent of three to six feet per second with a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds.
Individuals interested in purchasing a SkySaver device can save $99 using the special Cyber Monday code CYBERSAVER starting at midnight - 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30.
“We’re happy to enter the U.S. market and finally bring SkySaver to consumers who are living or working in multi-story structures, who tend to be at greater risk during a fire or other disaster,” says Yaakov Nakash, Commander of the Technical Development Department at SkySaver Inc. “Our product has been developed and tested by the most respected security professionals in the world, as well as certified to the highest international standards by multiple safety organizations. We can ensure that this personal rescue device offers users the best chance of survival during a high-rise disaster.”
Yaakov Nakash is a former Lieutenant General in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). As one of several developers on a team of safety and security experts, Yaakov brings a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the creation of the device and assures the product requires no training, is portable and compact, and has been tested in various simulated disaster situations.
