The ALTAIR 5X Gas Detector with Bluetooth wireless technology, integrated pump and PID option for VOC detection measures up to 6 gases simultaneously. Clearance measurements can be performed remotely using sampling line and floating probe. Driven by advanced MSA XCell® Sensor Technology, the ALTAIR 5X delivers faster response time, better stability, accuracy, longer service life, and cost savings. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally attached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly buttons and a high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X multigas detector easy to use for confined space applications.

The Workman Tripod is ideal for performing rescue work in confined spaces, and helps to make a vertical descent easy. Weighing just 19.5 kg with a maximum extension length of 245 cm, this aluminium tripod is an ideal anchorage point for work assignments with limited staff. It is suitable for fall arrest, rescue, retrieval or evacuation and loads of up to 140 kg for personnel and 225 kg for materials. Installation is intuitive and fast taking 2 minutes only, don’t just take our word for it, watch the video below.
