The RGR1 is a portable and lightweight rescue tripod, designed for fall arrest and retrieval applications, which can be easily erected on site. It has adjustable lower and intermediate legs at 80mm intervals that enable the tripod to adapt and adjust to comfortably fit, levelling the tripod on uneven surfaces or varying ground conditions.
If you have a particularly difficult and smooth surface, we have can supply a special set of 3 feet with a greater positive holding ability, which could potentially sort this problem. To replace the standard feet with this special foot type is a simple operation and only takes a few minutes to complete.
Special Foot shown left.
The underside of the head is fitted with 2 additional anchorage points which have a safe working load of 200kg each, this then enables additional primary/secondary systems to be incorporated in to the system.
This unit has many applications such as confined space access, entry, egress, rescue, retrieval, manholes, silos & trenches, etc. It is extremely versatile and is recommended for use with the side attachment of the RGR7 rescue winch or the RGA4 fall arrest & rescue block.

RGA4 Fall Arrest Rescue Block
The RGA4 is a 15 metre three way retrieval block fitted with an up/down winch mechanism and the standard fall arrest capability. This unit can be used as a standard fall arrest block, but in the event of a fall, the operative can be winched up or down to safety almost immediately. As most rescue systems lower the casualty, the RGA4 can raise the operative to safe area, if the area below is unsuitable.
The RGA4 can also be fitted to the RGR1 tripod for use in the confined access industry.
The Man-riding rescue retrieval winch function is for use only as a rescue unit & NOT for access / egress. Where an operative is required to be lowered / raised for access / egress, then please use such equipment as the RGR7 50m Two-speed Man Riding Winch. This arrangement must be backed up with a independent separate fall arrest system, and a rescue provision that is also separate to the winch. Where a 15m maximum length is suitable the RGA4 / RGA4H can provide both fall arrest back-up as well as the rescue capability.

The RGR7 rescue winch is fitted with an up/down clutch locking mechanism. Manufactured from steel with a baked enamel finish, the RGR7 has a 50cm per handle turn allowing for rapid retrieving/lowering of cable. This unit has many applications such as confined space entry, manholes and chemical vessels, etc.
The operative can be winched up or down 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 is most commonly fitted to the RGR1 tripod for use in the confined access industry, as it can lower a worker into an area where no ladders are fitted.
