Ridgegear "RGA12" Guided Fall Arrester. Manual Operation Grab For Use With 11mm Kernmantle Rope
Ridgegear kernmantle rope grab for use with 11mm kernmantle rope, designed to provide vertical/inclined fall protection.
The RGA12 is designed to provide vertical/inclined fall protection to operative ascending /descending a ladder or structure. This version of the rope grab is for use with 11mm Kernmantel Rope Only.
When used by itself, the RGA 12 should be connected directly to the chest attachment of a harness (RGH2/RGH4), via a karabiner. This ensures that the operative is held close to the structure and in the event of a slip, the fall distance and loading on the top anchor is minimal.
If more freedom of movement is required, the RGA12 EA version is fitted with a shock pack. This unit is successfully used in the field for protection on portable ladders. In use it is recommended that slight tension is placed on the rope to aid movement, as with all highly flexible systems.
In working conditions it is usual to provide additional fall protection equipment to protect the user when detaching from the device at height (i.e. RGL Range). Normally some training is required to illustrate safe working practices.
