Mac-Pro Edge Protection for Steel Grid Mesh
THE MAC-PRO IS A SIMPLE YET ROBUST ROPE PROTECTION DEVICE USED IN THE ROPE ACCESS INDUSTRY
Mac-pro has been developed, tested and made in Australia. Using a heavy duty nylon compound for protection against sharp edges, rope wear and high surface temperatures.
The mac-pro provides a smooth edge for a rope path, providing edge protection whilst threaded through the aperture of typical steel grid-mesh.
Mac-pros can be used a range of
applications including -
- INDUSTRIAL ROPE ACCESS
- COMMERCIAL ROPE ACCESS
- EMERGENCY RESPONSE
- TELECOMMUNICATIONS RIGGING
- OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS PLATFORMS
- RESOURCES SECTOR
- POWER STATIONS
THE MAC-PRO FITS MOST INDUSTRIAL STEEL GRID MESH
It can fit one or two 11mm or 13mm industrial static kernmantle ropes, making feeding ropes through grid mesh and retrieving them a quick and simple exercise.
The protector can be secured to the grid mesh with the supplied cord to prevent it becoming a dropped object. High wear resistance facilitating lowering off personnel in emergency scenarios.
Unit comes as a pair.
1) Please note the mac-pro is not a friction modifier device and should not be used in extreme friction scenarios. 2) While the mac-pro is structurally sound enough to handle a 90 degree deviation, the grid mesh you are using might not be, ropes should be vertical before passing through the mac-pro when possible. 3) mac-pros are designed and tested for use with static kernmantle ropes only. The use of flexible steel wire ropes in conjunction with the mac-pro is not recommended and should not be undertaken.
