Geotechnical

The ActSafe PME Power Ascenders is widely used in all kind of geotechnical operations; Cleaning rock faces over railways and roads, mounting of safety nets and inspections. In remote areas the need for helicopter assistance may be unnecessary - with enormous cost savings as the result.

Confined Space

Underground mines, ventilation systems, storage tanks and silos also require access for daily work, inspection, cleaning and maintenance. Access is generally only possible from the top down which presents difficult working environments and requires innovative work methods. Rescue plans almost always involve egressing a casualty out from the top. Power ascenders provide the solution to all theses challenges.

Arboriculture

Arborists and Tree Surgeons have embraced the use of Power Ascenders. This industry is known for pioneering new working methods and customising equipment.

Telecom and Power

Frequent climbing in towers can lead to repetitive strain injuries among staff. ActSafe Power Ascenders can easily raise or lower a technician including their equipment, thus eliminating a lot of hard climbs. They are also ideal for lifting or hauling purposes, in other words a lightweight alternative to wire winches.

Shipping

ActSafe ascenders are often used for work on ships as the technicians almost always have to exit back up to the top due to the water below. Work can be carried out when the ship is in port without the need for a dry dock.
