Personnel lifting

ActSafe recommends using ActSafe rope, Teufelberger Patron Plus or Skylotec Super Static R-080 rope as we conduct all our testing with these ropes, and we know that they work well with the power ascenders. All ropes that are used for personnel lifting must be certified to EN1891A with a diameter of 11 mm and should be of a solid construction. All ropes should be pre-soaked in cold water before use with ActSafe ascenders, as outlined in the user manual.
