3M introduces the DBI-SALA Rollgliss heavy duty rescue pole to their range of fall protection equipment. 

The Rollgliss heavy duty rescue pole is a high strength alternative for use with a variety of peer rescue systems including the Rollgliss R250 rescue kit during pick-off rescue operations.

Rick Millar, Technical Manager with 3M Australia & New Zealand explains the heavy duty construction and non-conductive elements of the pole make it ideal for use around high and low voltage work areas to safely reach and rescue an injured worker. 

Supplied complete with its own carry bag for ease of transport, use and storage, the rescue pole is lightweight and portable. A smooth turn lock functionality allows the pole to easily extend, retract and safely lock off in sections from 1.5 to 3.8 metres in length to suit any specific rescue scenario, enabling the rescuer to remove a person from danger without putting themselves at risk by descending down to them.

Fitted with a sunrise end fitting, the specially designed adaptor holds the rescue hook in place; the rescuer simply hooks onto the suspended person’s fall arrest D-ring during rescue operations.

Home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands, 3M is a world-leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide.
