The G.Tripod 230 is an EN795 (class B) + TS16415 anchorage device that is durable and lightweight. It provides a secure and stable anchorage for confined space access. Maximum working load (MWL) 200kg for personnel (safety factor 10:1), and 250kg for loads. It may be used as an anchor by more than one person simultaneously, providing the MWL is not exceeded. The three-pulley head means that equipment can be fitted to any of the legs. The mounting eyes on the underside of the head allow for equipment to also be fitted beneath the head, such as a chain hoist. May be used in conjunction with the G.Winch and G.Saver II.
The G-Winch is a manually operated winch designed specifically for the routine raising or lowering of personnel. The G-Winch can be used either for rescue purposes or day-to-day personnel lifting. The G-Winch is ideal for use in confined spaces and can be fitted to our G-Tripod quickly and easily. The G-Winch has a high mechanical efficiency and a light, smooth action making lifting easy. Galvanized steel rope is fitted as standard with stainless steel and synthetic ropes also available when desired, enabling use in a variety of different environments.
The RGH5 is designed for use as a confined access harness. The front and rear attachment points can be used as standard fall arrest points and the rescue strap can be used for lifting and lowering. When used, the rescue strap keeps the operative in a near vertical position, which is preferred when recovering an unconscious casualty. This harness is used throughout the industry in conjunction with a tripod and a winch unit to access confined spaces, vertical shafts, sewers and silos. As with all of the RidgeGear harnesses, the RGH5 is suitable for use with fall arrest-retrieval blocks.
