When it comes to confined space entry/rescue, it is essential that equipment operates perfectly and quickly. Lightweight, portable Protecta aluminium tripods are ideal for confined space manhole entry and retrieval. They’re easily transported from one location to another and can be set up by one worker. Attach one or two mechanical devices such as a winch or 3 way self retracting lifeline and you’re ready to go. Our tripods are loaded with features such as locking legs, simple detent pin style adjustment, quick mount mechanical device bracket and skid resistant tread plate soles on feet.

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.
