Rope Grab designed to provide either fall arrest or restraint protection depending on which system is specified.
The RGA14 is designed to provide either fall arrest or restraint protection depending on which system is specified. It is also currently used in the rope access industry, as a protection device on the safety rope. The RGA14 is for use with 10.5 - 12.7mm kernmantle rope. The RGA14 can easily be removing the connection karabiner.
Although the uses for this lightweight rope grab are numerous, Ridgegear's largest client is currently the aircraft industry, where the RGA14 is used for customized adjustable length fall arrest lanyards.
When used for vertical progression, It is recommended that slight tension be placed on the bottom of the rope to aid movement. 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).
