REBS Standard Launcher
The Standard Launcher enables users to access high-up entry points by launching a grapnel hook on to a permanent fixture and then ascending ropes fixed from that point. The Launcher is perfect for entering buildings, bridges, ships, platforms or cliffs as well as crossing ravines or rivers, both for military and rescue scenarios. The Launcher is powered with pressurized air, which facilitates low noise operation and enables easy reloading from ordinary diving bottles. The grapnel hooks come in high strength aluminum alloy and titanium and can reach distances of 50m in height and a horizontal distance of 100 meters. A climbing ladder can be launched as high as 25m.
The power of the launcher can be preset on the fly by adjusting the pressure using the pressure gauge. The Launcher can be used several times at various heights for each tank refill. The number of shots between refills depends on the pressure used for each shot. The Launcher Piston Kit reduces both recoil and sound levels, providing both tactical and HSE benefits. It is easily installed on existing units, and is also recommended as a standard part on new deliveries.
For ease of transportation and increased comfort at very high pressures we provide a stand platform which can be bolted to any flat surface and we also provide custom interfaces for any boat or vehicle. A flexible solution is the Launcher Mount that can be used both with a flexible padded base, or the rubber pad. Allowing the Launcher to be fired safely even while rested on the ground.
