)-- DEUS Rescue, a premier provider of innovative descent solutions designed for rescue and safety, today announced its devices were featured in the season finale episode of The Amazing Race Canada. Contestants were challenged to rappel down the iconic 57-story Sony L Tower in Toronto, using DEUS 7300 devices in their descent.

“DEUS Rescue is excited to have been a part of The Amazing Race Canada,” said Shain Rae, chief executive officer, DEUS Rescue. “In many ways, this episode highlights our company’s approach to rescue and recreational descent, which is to make it reliable and foolproof. Our customers are under constant pressure to minimize errors of judgment. Each of the contestants on The Amazing Race Canada beautifully completed a hands-free descent from over 40 stories without having so much as seen a DEUS descent device beforehand – and they had a lot of fun in the process!”
DEUS controlled descent devices provide the highest level of safety in a variety of elevated environments, including buildings, towers and challenge course high elements.
“It was a thrill being on site with the Amazing Race Canada contestants while they were using the DEUS equipment to descend from the 44th floor to the street,” said Paul Hashagen, retired FDNY Rescue 1 and master instructor with Fire Operations Group. “The stuntmen working on the challenge were so enthusiastic about the DEUS technology because of its inventive design and ease of use. The reliability of the DEUS descent devices instilled great trust for everyone involved in the production and enabled this potentially dangerous stunt to be carried out safely.”
DEUS Rescue controlled descent devices provide the foundation of complete escape and rescue solutions for those who work and play at height. DEUS products are used in a variety of industries such as the fire service, electrical distribution, oil & gas, wind power, telecommunications, law enforcement and recreation. Built around DEUS Rescue’s patented SafeDescent™ Technology, the company’s descent products are safe, reliable and easy-to-use, and built to last over time and use in tough environments.
The devices used in the rappel challenge in The Amazing Race Canada were the company’s 7300 model, which is designed for continuous or repetitive use over longer descent distances.
