The RGA10 is designed to provide vertical/inclined fall protection to operatives ascending /descending a ladder or structure. This version of the rope grab is for use with 16mm Hawser Laid Rope Only. This unit is supplied with a shock pack that cannot be removed, however due to the “gate opening” method of attachment, the RGA10 offers positive closure and good camming action. The locking cam on this device is toothed and arrests well on the hawser laid rope.When used in conjunction with the RGA10R hawser laid rope, the RGA10 provides excellent protection as a vertical fall protection system, normally used in heavy industrial areas where fouling and debris will be transferred to the rope. In use, it is recommended that slight tension is placed on the rope to aid movement, as with all highly flexible systems. In working conditions it is usual to provide additional fall protection equipment to protect the user when detaching from the device at height (i.e. RGL Range).
