Checkmate TR3 Confined Space Tripod
Product No. TR3
Confined Space Tripod
Checkmate TR3 is the latest confined space tripod with a durable alloy construction, providing access or fall protection in confined space environments. It has a host of new features and benefits for users
Why is TR3 favored by many users? It is ultra-lightweight at less than 15kgs 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 pieces of Checkmate equipment for safe anchorage while carrying out work tasks and rescue in confined spaces.
How multi-purpose is TR3? It offers either an anchorage for suspended work or a secure Fall Arrest point if accessing via alternate means such as a ladder. The TR3 also provides anchorage for one winch operative/supervisor standing next to the tripod. Modes of use are clearly demonstrated on the user manual p.7 & 8.
We also supply confined space tripod kit that includes rescue harness, confined space tripod, and winch.
