The Edge90° Parapet Clamp has been designed for use with diameters of nylon kernmantle rope as a physical barrier to a potential hazard. Other synthetic and natural fibre type ropes may be used.
We do not recommend the use wire rope or steel cable in the Edge90°. The Edge90° has an increased bend radius to retain the full strength of the rope.
The Edge90° has a grippy, yet soft rubber base to maintain its position on the parapet and assist in the protection of the building during installation and normal use.
The Edge90° has a rope retention system offering added security.
The cam strap may be removed from one side of the Edge90° and a single Edge90° may be used and secured elsewhere.
In Industrial Rope Access, all rigging equipment & ropes shall be rigged in such a way to remove or avoid contact with potential hot, sharp or abrasive surfaces that threaten the integrity of the life supporting system.
The Edge90° may be used with rope diameters of up to 13mm. ( ½”)
The Edge90° may be used with nylon webbing or round slings.
The Edge90° is not designed for the use of wire rope or steel cable at any time.
