Tinkerball / Life Rescue Device


Today, high-rise buildings are very common. Although they are convenient to live in, they turn to one of the most dangerous place when severely attacked as we saw in 9/11. People have been using the automatic descending life line to escape from endangered building. However, it has positional and numerical limitations in installing and using it. A considerable percentage of people will not be able to use it immediately when an emergency actually happens. Tinkerball Life Rescue Device, is an innovative rescue equipment to complement the limitations of automatic descending life line to guarantee your safe escape.
