Tripod for Confined Space Environments
Pure Safety Group (PSG), the largest company dedicated solely to fall protection, has introduced the Checkmate TR3 Tripod, used as personal protective equipment to access workers and provide fall protection in confined space environments. The tripod features an innovative new crown and foot design that makes it stronger yet more lightweight than other tripods.
The TR3 is one of 20 new fall protection products PSG is launching in 2019 into the construction, oil and gas, energy, utilities, telecom, mining and transportation industries. It is the first Checkmate product to be launched in North America.
The TR3 tripod legs lock in the open position automatically during use, easily disengage for folding and are adjusted for proper height with captive pins. Detent pins secure them to the tripod using PVC-coated keeper wires. The tripod’s pivoting spiked feet and rubber soles allow for its use on soft or hard surfaces. Its anti-splay webbing, which prevents the tripod legs from splaying under a load, can be neatly tucked into its own housing slot for storage.
When used in conjunction with other Checkmate equipment, the TR3 can be used as an anchorage for suspended work and winch operations and as a secure fall arrest point.
The tripod’s maximum single-user weight for fall arrest, with one operator, is 310 pounds. When used in assisted rescue, the maximum combined capacity load for workers is 620 pounds, and it’s 550 pounds for carrying goods. The tripod meets OSHA standards, exceeds ANSI standards and will be CSA certified.
