The life-saving auto-inflatable sling
See Product Features for details

The ResQmax™ is a new generation line thrower specifically designed to deploy a line only, or an auto-inflating flotation sling and retrieval line to an otherwise inaccessible point in both land-based and maritime environments, providing an emergency response capability without putting the rescuer at risk.

  • Utilizing a patented air-thrust launcher technology, the ResQmax™ is non-pyrotechnic, reusable, and refillable.
  • Launcher housings are injection-molded from polycarbonate for durability and high impact resistance.
  • Two manual back-up systems on the auto-inflating sling assure fail-safe inflation.
  • 3,000 psi / 207 bar service pressure line projectiles.

The ResQmax™ line thrower comes in standard kits and can also be equipped with lines of specific strength and length to target end-user requirements. This line thrower is especially useful for rescues where a heavy line is required or long distances must be breached. Operational lines can be established with ease for a variety of applications including high or low angle rescue, construction projects, and ship-to-ship line deployment.


MAXimum Distance
As a line thrower, the ResQmax™ can deliver a variety of line types, depending on the application, over distances up to 400 ft / 120 m.
As a water-rescue device, it can deliver an auto-inflating flotation sling and retrieval line to a victim in the water over distances up to 300 ft / 92 m.

MAXimum Safety
The safety mechanism on the launcher is "always on," resetting automatically when a projectile is inserted.

The projectile's "Push-Click" engagement allows easy reloading, even in the dark.

A pressure relief burst disk prevents unsafe pressure build-up that could result from exposure to extreme heat.

MAXimum Performance
Multi-Shot Capacity.
The patented nozzle valve permits any number of projectiles to be precharged and stored with the unit, allowing deployment of multiple projectiles in rapid succession.

The ResQmax™ is designed to meet the requirements of the NFPA Standard 1670 Standard Operations and Training for Technical Rescue.
