What is the Arachnipod?
The Arachnipod is an innovative design which captures the multi-functional capabilities. Simplicity and robust engineering provide the world’s most versatile modular total edge managements system (TEMS). The Arachnipod can easily be adjusted in to multiple configurations, providing users with a safe, cost effective total edge management solution.
Arachnipod components can be added or removed as required, so that the system compliments the existing structural or natural features.
The unique design of the patented modular head means that the Arachnipod can be constructed in to many different configurations, including Gin Pole, Hand Rail Recovery, A-Frame, Transverse A-Frame, Lazy Leg A-Frame, Tripod, Quadpod and the awesome Bridge System.
For very heavy loads, an infinite number of additional legs can be fitted to the system to increase the Safe Working Load (SWL).
The Arachnipod has been drop test rated for a 280kg rescue load. The Arachnipod head has been tested and is capable of holding a high-directional load as well as a belay system. We advocate that all lowering and hauling systems should be backed up by a belay or secondary system.
