Product Description

 

The TRIP210 is a robust, very well engineered and finished, rescue and access tripod, intended for confined spaces work below ground, or deck levels.

Please read throughout, before watching the videos attached to this page.

 Made in high grade Aluminium tube-stock, with a cast and machined head, rope cables are easlily fitted over its pulley and locked in to the pulley housing, in a single handled, quick and easy action. Tripod legs have rubber feet and are telescopically adjusted and locked in place.The legs fold away on pivots built in to the head and which are designed so that, when extended, deployment is fast, safe and easy - not to mention, very stable, too.

Its safe load is well over a ton - far exceeding the requirements of relevant European Normes. It should be noted that the maximum, manned load, accepted under approval testing, is 136 Kg weight.

The Tripod has been designed to give a secure and stable anchorage for a wide range of fall arrest devices.. There are two anchorage points allowing the use of a secondary back-up fall arrestor, or other types of lifting / safety equipment. Various accessories are available to facilitate readily so doing .

All fall arrest devices must be inspected and tested functional prior to use and a record maintained of usage and periodic load testing and certification. These devices are goverened under LOLER and the PPE Regulations and, in this case, the maker's recommendation is that it be examined and certified competent, at intervals no longer than twelve months.

  • Weight (Exc Brackets):18 kg
  • Height (Max):2.4M
  • Length when closed: 1.70M
  • Leg Span (Max) Dia:2.25M
  • Max. Hole Dia:1.75M (Safe leg-span)

The video attached to this page demonstrates the inconvenience of other designs, that we do not favour.
You will perhaps note the lack of stability, the awkward pulley angles, necessity to haul the pulley, from an usafe postition and those obstructive chains made necessary by the design, for leg and crown stability.

In fairness, with all tripod designs, stability can be a problem - especially when the mistake is made, as shewn in the video, of moving the load outside of the safe lifting 'envelope' for the tripod and here, the tripod almost collapses, as the casualty is recovered.

TRIPOD 120 - makes such manouvres easier and safer becasue the winch operator is stabley positioned at the leg on which the winch is attached and from which position, assisting stability, when the load is outside the envelope, is much easier. As soon as we have made a comparative video, we will post it to this page.
