LiftingSafety Alloy Gantry Crane / Tripod combo, Certified for Man-riding (Fall Arrest) & Materials Lifting. 500kg
Adjustable combination gantry crane and man-riding tripod built into a single transportable unit for ease of use on different site locations.
The versatile, portable frame, tripod gantry is designed to meet 'The work at height' regulation. For the pump industry the dilemma faced was although working at ground level, workers are lifting manhole covers and working around open sumps, where the same risks apply as working at heights, a person can fall into the sump which can be located many feet below ground level.
The Tripod Gantry has been designed to lift a pump out from a sump in a safe manner and for the operative to then simply slide it to one side for safe inspection. To ensure the safety of the operative, a fall arrest harness can be attached to the frame which also has been designed for single 'man riding'.
The Tripod Gantry Crane is manufactured out of lightweight aluminium and can be erected by a single operative.
