Personnel lifting

The ACX Ascender, when used to lift people, must be used with personal protective equipment approved for work at height, rope access and/or rope rescue.

Basic requirements:

The rope system must consist of a primary work rope system and a secondary backup rope system. For personnel lifting the primary rope used in the Ascender must be approved to EN1891 A and have a diameter of 11 mm (7/16”) and the backup system must fulfill the respective requirements. Each rope system must be connected to an anchor that meets the appropriate personal lifting requirements. A competent person shall judge if the anchor points are sufficient and safe to use. DO NOT USE the Ascender without a backup system. Take particular care of the suitability of the system when lifting more than one person.

Equipment, Material and Tool Lifting

The ACX Ascender is, in combination with the Skylotec Equipment Lifting Rope (ELR), approved under the Machinery Directive as an equipment lifting system provided that all other equipment used also meets lifting requirements. The lifting system must be connected to an appropriate anchor that meets requirements for load lifting anchors (a competent person shall judge if the anchor is sufficient and safe to use).
