The new Tractel tracpode 150 kg is a mobile anchor point for working in tight spaces, handling loads and performing rescue operations. It is also the only tripod on the market which is approved for use in safeguarding two users each weighing up to 150kg.
The tracpode is the only anchor point to have been approved by a regulatory body as a device to which fall arrest, lifting and rescue systems can all be connected and it has the capability to raise a maximum load of 500kg provided the strap is fitted to the feet.
Made of aluminium, with its light-weight design (18kg) the tracpode is easy to transport and can be extended to six different height positions in increments of 20cm using its extending tubes.
The feet of the Tracpode are swivel-mounted and come with anti-slip pads made of vulcanised rubber and the legs are secured by a strap once the tripod adjustment is completed. If the ground is stable and in good condition, such as concrete, asphalt, flooring tiles, etc. and the feet are in good condition , the Tracpode™ can be used without the leg securing strap with a maximum load capacity of 250 Kg.
The head of the Tracpode is equipped with 3 anchor points:
2 to support all types of fall-arrest of evacuation systens of up to 150kg user weight
1 anchor point supports a lifting winch with a WLL of 250kg
1 anchor point supports a lifting winch with a WLL of 500kg
A pulley kit can also be fitted to the head of the Tracpode to guide the various cables used.
