TR3 - confined space tripod

The latest tripod from Checkmate has a host of new features and benefits for the user, it is super light at less than 33lbs (15kg) making it easily transported, yet it is even stronger and more durable due to the new crown and feet design. The TR3 can be used with an array of other Checkmate equipment allowing for safe anchorage while carrying out work tasks and rescue in confined spaces.

Ultra lightweight, tough, and with a durable alloy construction, the TR3 tripod is primarily to be used as Personal Protective Equipment, to provide access or fall protection in confined space environments. It offers either an anchorage for suspended work or a secure Fall Arrest point if accessing via alternate means, for example a ladder (see Options below). The TR3 also provides anchorage for one winch operative/supervisor standing next to the tripod. Modes of use are shown on the downloadable technical data sheet, which also demonstrates the different user equipment required for each. It may alternatively (with different equipment) be used for goods carrying, with prior approval from Checkmate. An optional protective storage/carry bag can be supplied.
