The RGR1 Rescue Tripod is portable, lightweight and is easy to erect on site. It has adjustable lower and middle legs at 80mm intervals to adapt and adjust to the most demanding surfaces and varying ground conditions. There are two additional anchorage points ( SWL 200kgs each )on the underside of the head for additional primary / secondary systems. This unit has many applications such as confined access, entry, rescue, retrieval, manhole, silos & trenches, etc. The RGR1 is extremely versitile and is recomended for use with the side attachment of the RGR7 rescue winch and the RGR4 fall arrest & rescue recovery winch.
Manufactured from steel with a baked enamel finish, the RGR7 has a 50cm diameter handle turn. With a full one handle turn will release approximately 48mm of cable. This unit has many applications such as confined space entry, manholes and chemical vessels. The operative can ascend / descend to safety almost immediately. As most rescue systems lower the casualty, the RGR7 can raise the operative to safe area, if the area below is unsuitable. The RGR7 can be fitted to the RGR1 tripod for use in confined space access when ladders or foot irons are not available or deemed unsuitable.
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.
