The RGA4 is a three way retrieval block fitted with an up/ down winch mechanism and the standard fall arrest capability.
This unit can be used as a standard fall arrest block but in the event of a fall, the operative can be winched up or down to safety almost immediately. As most rescue systems lower the casualty, the RGA4 can raise the operative to safe area, if the area below is unsuitable. The rescue retrieval winch function is for use only as a rescue provision and not for access/egress. Where an operative is required to be lowered/raised for access/egress, then please use such equipment as the RGR7 winch. This arrangement must be backed up with a independ- ent separate fall arrest system, and a rescue provision that is also separate to the winch.
The RGA4 has a working length of 15m and can be supplied with galvanised or stainless steel wire cable.
