Using removable Anchors for rescue and rigging are great… they really are. Why? As you’ll see in the video, sometimes options are thin and there is never a time when compromising anchors is part of the solution. These anchors (Removable Anchors by ClimbTech and PMI) can be removed and reused at any desired location. These gems have unmatched safety, ease of use, and speed. The RB anchors as you’ll see in the video, work in horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces. Back in the day with the Rigging Lab’s training center, we routinely used heavy loads from the floors, walls, and ceilings to rig for classes and filming projects. I love these things!
In terms of removal… super easy. With respect to safety, fall protection, restraint work, work positioning, and a ton of other uses. And, though it would seem logical, RBs are for concrete or rock only.
The MBS each is about 12kN or 2700 lbs
Anchors are a fundamental component of nearly every rope rescue system. But what options are available to the rescuer who is confronted with sub-optimal anchors or a fall line that just doesn’t jibe with a single anchor point? Load sharing anchors to the rescue! This video covers important anchor building considerations like load-distributing versus load-sharing anchors, man-made versus natural anchors, and multi-point anchor angle forces.
Peace on your days!
