  • The RGA1 has an almost instant “lock off” in the event of a fall, and recoils into the drum when slack is introduced into the lanyard.

RGA2
RGA2

10 mtr Fall Arrest Block.

The RGA2 is used throughout the industry to provide semi permanent protection in work areas and is used on lorry sheeting gantries in conjunction with a beam trolley (RGBT 1).

  • It is a multi purpose fall arrest block, which allows uninhibited movement during normal working activity.
  • The carrying handle is part of the cast alloy housing and can be connected to the anchorage point using soft slings or a karabiner.
  • For self-connecting to the block, it is recommended that the operative uses an extension strop (RGL4) in order to ease the task.

RGA3
RGA3

15 mtr Wire Fall Arrest Block.

The RGA3 is suitable for use in most industries to provide protection in work areas with overhead anchorage points.

  • A robust fall arrest block and the “big brother” of the RGA2, with its longer working length and heavier construction, it has been used successfully by the offshore industry for years.
  • The carrying handle of the RGA 3 is part of the cast alloy housing and can be connected to the anchorage point using soft slings or a karabiner.

RGA4
RGA4

15 mtr Wire Fall Arrest & Rescue Block.

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 a 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.

RGA4H
RGA4H

5 mtr Wire Fall Arrest & Rescue Block c/w Stabilising Handle.

Like the RGA4, the RGA4H is a three way retrieval block fitted with an up/down winch mechanism and the standard fall arrest capability. 

  • The RGA4H is identical to the RGA4, but has the benefit of an additional steadying handle.
  • 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 RGA4H can raise the operative to a safe area, if the area below is unsuitable.

RGA5
RGA5

5 mtr Webbing Fall Arrest Block.

As a general-purpose fall arrest block, the RGA5 has proved its worth in the industry.

  • It is a compact, robust yet lightweight fall arrest block.
  • This unit does not have an integral handle, but is fitted with an alloy swivel eye for connection to an anchorage via a karabiner.
  • Due to its low weight, this device is ideal for use with certain horizontal lifelines.
  • Fitted with webbing instead of wire, this block is suited for work in and around fragile components i.e.; aircraft industry and glass lined vessels.

  • The carrying handle is part of the cast alloy housing and can be connected to the anchorage point using soft slings or a karabiner.
  • For self-connecting to the block, it is recommended that the operative uses an extension strop (RGL4) in order to ease the task.
