Protecta 8 ft Adjustable Tripod Kit AK105A
To make the ordering process easier and to give you confidence you are ordering and OSHA approved tripod winch set-up we have created the Protecta Tripod Kit. With this kit you know you will be getting everything you need to operate the tripod and will not have to worry about missing a piece of the puzzle.
DBI-SALA Protecta 8 ft. Tripod
The AK105A Confined Space Entry and Retrieval Tripods are designed to keep workers safe while entering and exiting a confined space. This is a tripod that will meet your budget but also meet all the ratings put out there by OSHA and ANSI.
With its ease of operation anybody can set this unit up. To set up just pull the legs out and snap lock pins into place. Each leg is adjustable to 8 different height just in case the area where you are working is not even. There is also an adjustable leg cable that connects to all 3 legs to keep them from spreading under the load.
The tripod itself is made from aluminum with the head of the tripod being cast aluminum and the legs being anodized aluminum. Each leg has reflective safety tape helping with visibility at night and anti-skid on the feet of the tripod to prevent slippage.
As a single anchorage point the tripod is rated at 5,000 lbs. Meets OSHA 1910 & ANSI Z359.1-1998 standards for confined-space entry devices.
Protecta AK205AG Winch
The AK205AG comes with 50 feet of 3/16 in. cable. Other lengths are available, but this has been the most popular. The winch is man-rated, and meets or exceeds UL requirements for load capacity. It is available in a variety of lengths and utilizes galvanized or (optional) stainless steel 3/16" diameter cable. It features a detachable handle, oil impregnated bearings, a safety lock, and a corrosion-resistant finish. Winching speed is typically 20 fpm at a 4:1 ratio. The winch is man-rated at 310 lbs. It includes four disc brakes and is manufactured domestically.
The AK200 Series Winch is simple to operate in that to reverse direction, you just turn the handle in the opposite direction. No manipulation of components is required.
Capital Safety 8003205 Snatch Block Pulley
Another necessary part of the set-up is the 8003205 pulley. The cable is led from the winch to the pulley to help guide the line directly down into your confined space or manhole. There are no tools needed for installation as the pulley hangs from the tripod eye bolt and attaches with a self-locking push pin.
