The Sked-Evac Tripod extends to ten feet high at the three anchors which are available to clip into.
Each of the anchors is anodized red for easy identification, and all are equally well centred to handle a load.
The anchors, header and legs are interconnected with stainless steel bolts to provide maximum strength. The header limits the distance the legs can spread. When at the full extension this tripod allows you to bring the patient in a stretcher completely out of the hole.
It is rated to handle an NFPA rescue load and has EN795 certification as well.
Included with the tripod is a chain which passes through the feet to provide greater strength and stability. The chain will not degrade in acids or chemicals like nylon straps or ropes.
The legs are adjustable in 5" increments, and Skedco provides safe working load data for each tripod height on each tripod.
When Sked-Evac Tripod is fully extended, the length of each tripod leg is 135 3/4″ long (11′ 3 3/4″). And the Diameter is about 108” (9’).
9" x 9" x 90" at 70lbs
