Here at Anglo Access were really keen on the Abtech tripods, the clever head design of the Abtech Tripod range increases its usability and strength. There's a video at the bottom of the page testing the design to its limits.
"The access tripod is essentially the base for most confined space entry and rescue systems. Therefore a strong, stable, and portable tripod cabable of both fall arrest and recovery systems is a must"
One user can carry and erect the Abtech Tripod, thanks to its sturdy lightweight aluminium alloy construction. As with most tripods, each leg is fully adjustable via a removable pin. However... unlike 'most' access tripods the Abtech T03 has 6 anchor points! each point is tested to EN795, the 3 overhead pulleys hold up to 11mm rope. The additional anchor points are perfect for use with pulleys for a double roped rescuer, back-up system, airlines, communication lines, medical kits, tool kits etc.

The CST1 Abtech Tripod kit is supplied with the Abtech 15m Fall Arrest & Recovery Device. This block is designed to provide fall protection when anchored above the user, it gives the user a safe area of work. The retracting wire pays in and out of the device as the user moves. Should a fall occur the fall brake engages, arresting the fall of the user with a controlled deceleration force (<6kN). Fitted with an integral winch mechanism, the block allows the top man to raise or lower the user to a safe area post fall. A bracket is supplied to securely mount the block on one of the tripod legs.
