Retrieval system

Steadying handle

The RGA4H has the added benefit of an additional steadying handle. The RGA4H is a three way retrieval block fitted with an up / down winch mechanism and the standard fall arrest capability.
In the event of a fall, the operative can be winched up or down to safety. The RGA4H can raise the operative to a safe area if the area below is unsuitable.

The man-riding winch function is for use only as a recovery provision – NOT for access / egress. Where an operative is required to be lowered / raised for access/egress, then please use
equipment like the RGR7 winch.

This must be backed up with a separate fall arrest system, and a rescue / recovery provision that is also separate to the winch. The RGA4H can provide both fall arrest back-up as well as recovery. It is supplied with galvanised wire cable.
