Fall protection equipment specialist and home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands, Capital Safety has launched their new DBI-SALA Rollgliss heavy duty rescue poles.
The new heavy duty rescue pole has been designed as a high strength alternative for use with the Rollgliss R250 rescue kit, or with a variety of peer rescue kits during pick-off rescue operations.
Rick Millar, Technical Manager with Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand explains the heavy duty construction and non-conductive elements of the pole make it ideal for use around high and low voltage work areas to safely reach and rescue an injured worker. Supplied complete with its own carry bag for ease of transport, use and storage, the pole is lightweight and portable, and ideal for pick-off operations.
The smooth turn lock functionality of the rescue poles allows them to easily extend, retract and safely lock off in sections from 1.5 to 3.8 metres in length to suit the specific rescue scenario, enabling the rescuers to remove a person from danger without putting themselves at risk by descending down to them.
Fitted with a sunrise end fitting, the specially designed adaptor holds the rescue hook in place; the rescuer simply hooks onto the suspended person’s fall arrest D-ring during rescue operations.
Capital Safety is a world-leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide.
