  • Emergency rescue

 EN795:2012‚ (Type E)

Designed & manufactured in accordance with BS7883:2005, Assists users to work in accordance with BS7985:2002

PDCEN/TS:16415,  Recommendations for use of an EN795 anchor for more than one person simultaneously 

Designed specifically for use behind parapet walls, the Dead Weight Trolley provides a portable suspension anchor for personnel concerned with rope access and fall arrest. It is easy to assemble, simple to move from one location to another and invaluable in situations where a rescue has become necessary. There is no need to penetrate the roof surface/membrane, eliminating any need for alteration to building aesthetics.

The Dead Weight Trolley enables rope access contractors to offer a competitive service, particularly for occasional or one-off contracts where availability of fixed anchor points is limited or too expensive to install. Every DWT has been fully CE approved in the UK to BSEN 795:1997, is designed & manufactured in accordance with BS7883:2005, and assists users to work in accordance with BS7985:2002.

Each DWT weighs 178kg in total, but it is entirely portable, with each component weighing approximately 25kg. Once assembled the unit can be manoeuvred effortlessly by one man, and will easily fit into a lift, as it only has a footprint of 400 x 500mm.

The tubular mild steel framework is finished with a yellow powder coating, and each unit is individually serial numbered. All joints are welded (no nuts or bolts are used in the framework's construction), ensuring that the trolley is immensely strong and more than capable of dealing with the demanding nature of its working environment. The Dead Weight Trolley will, without a doubt, be a valuable addition to the equipment resources of any company involved in working at height.
