The G.Winch is a personnel winch fitted with a maximum of 50 metres of wire rope. For confined space use and for the routine raising & lowering of personnel.
For Example: lifting personnel through areas of restricted access. It can be attached to the G.Tripod or similar EN795 anchorage device. It can be used where regular lifting is required. The G.Winch is recommended for use in conjunction with a Fall Arrest and Retrieval device such as the G.Saver II. This system then incorporates EN360 fall protection, with an additional safety line to rescue the user in the event of an unforeseen occurrence.
Use in this manner provides the maximum level of safety possible. The winch handle has two possible positions. When fitting the handle, ensure that the wing screw is securely located into one of the two locating depressions.
The Man Riding Winch has an anti-run brake to prevent the person supported or load from falling to the ground should the winch operator release the winding arm. The mechanism provides an easy winding action making personnel lifting easy. The G.Winch is tough and durable, with a long working life.
