Fall Arrest & Recovery Blocks

Fall Arrest & Recovery Blocks

Our benchmark goal was to stock state of the art Fall Arrest Blocks which had increased functionality, were robust enough for all environments and were of a fail-safe design.

The attention to detail of our design and test teams has produced a streamlined and ergonomic range of fall arrest blocks. Using the latest 3D computer modelling techniques, features such as the handle have been optimised for strength and use, even with a gloved hand.

Our Range of Xcalibre blocks takes this design goal to a new level using state of the art materials.

The RGA4 is a three way retrieval block fitted with an up/down winch mechanism and the standard fall arrest capability.

The RGA4 is a 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 provision & 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 RGR7 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 provision.

If the requirement is for more than 15m metres, please contact us.

Need a solution to your rescue plan?

The Ultra-Lok™ RSQ Self Retracting Lifeline’s exclusive dual-mode operation allows the user, prior to connection, to choose between fall arrest requiring assisted rescue, or self rescue.

This models two-in-one operation allows the device to be optimized for the job site while providing the ultimate level of worker safety. After setting the device mode, should a fall occur, the following will happen:

Fall Arrest Mode (Assisted Rescue): A speed sensing brake stops the fall, reduces forces imposed on the user to safe levels of 900 lbs. or less and allows for assisted rescue to take place.

Automatic Rescue Mode (Self Rescue/Descent): A speed sensing brake stops the fall just like in fall arrest mode, then instantly a centrifugal brake activates lowering the user at a controlled speed to the next level or ground.
