About the Course
The Vortex is ideal for a wide range of applications, from access and egress to confined spaces, to the negotiation of complex edges in wilderness environments. The Vortex is the multipod of choice for professionals within the rescue, industrial rope access, construction, military, and entertainment rigging industries.
The Vortex User Manual was written and edited by Rob Stringer, in collaboration with Rock Exotica who provided the product specifications and illustrations. Rob Stringer is the Founder / Director of Highpoint Access & Rescue in Rockhampton, Queensland Australia. Highpoint Access & Rescue was established in 2003, primarily to service the rope access, work at heights and confined space safety needs of Queensland’s electricity generating industry. Over its operational period, Highpoint has grown to provide rope access and professional asset maintenance services to every thermal power station in Queensland, as well as servicing many other industries both on and offshore.
Through extensive use, exhaustive testing (both destructive and non-destructive), and discussions with Reed and other industry leaders, Rob has been able to develop a unique process for the basic Vortex setup. This process and the related “Rules of Thumb” are described in this user manual. Rob has also developed methods to approximate and calculate forces associated with the more complex Vortex rigging, however, this information is not covered in the basic user manual.
