  • Compact. Reliable. Intuitive.

    The most compact escape system available.

    The LEVR Escape System is built around CMC’s patented LEVR Descender, a next-generation device that uses its lever-shaped handle for progressive descent control, fast and easy horizontal pay-out, reliable edge transition, and intuitive operation. Designed to assure rapid emergency egress with safe, controllable descent, this escape system is now offered with the option of either the gated Flash.G™ Escape Anchor or Flash.2™ Escape Anchor.

    CMC’s Flash Anchors are structurally optimized to be strong, robust, lightweight, and low-profile. Both the Flash.G and Flash.2 are classified to NFPA standards as Emergency Escape Anchors and Escape Descent Control Devices (DCDs), allowing advanced users to lower a victim and then lower themselves, a sequence referred to as the Byrne Technique after Firefighter and CMC School Instructor Kelly Byrne. Advanced users interested in the Byrne Technique should check out CMC’s LEVR BT Escape System.

    The LEVR Escape System also includes 50 feet of proprietary CMC Fire Escape Web™, made of 100% Technora® fiber for high strength, durability, heat-resistance, and superior packability. A low-profile Fire Escape Bag allows right or left hand deployment and attaches securely to a belt or harness. The personal tether and aluminum auto-locking carabiner keep the system connected to an attachment point and ready for immediate deployment. Extremely compact, the LEVR Escape System integrates with turnout gear and leaves the user unencumbered.
