Product Info: Ridgegear RGA4/EDGE Fall Arrest Block
The Ridgegear RGA4/EDGE Fall Arrest Block is a three way 15m retrieval block with the expected fall arrest capabilities, but with the added extra of an up/down winch mechanism. The recovery feature means operatives who have experienced a fall can be winched up or down to safety. The man-riding winch function must only be used for retrieval, NOT for access/egress.
The addition of a shock pack means this block can be used whilst working over the edge. However horizontal use or foot level attachment should still be discouraged as there is a risk of serious injury from striking objects.
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.
This item must be used with a safety harness.
