THE MAC-PRO IS A SIMPLE YET ROBUST ROPE PROTECTION DEVICE USED IN THE ROPE ACCESS INDUSTRY
Mac-pro has been developed, tested and made in Australia. Using a heavy duty nylon compound for protection against sharp edges, rope wear and high surface temperatures.
The mac-pro provides a smooth edge for a rope path, providing edge protection whilst threaded through the aperture of typical steel grid-mesh.
mac-pros can be used a range of
applications including –
- INDUSTRIAL ROPE ACCESS
- COMMERCIAL ROPE ACCESS
- EMERGENCY RESPONSE
- TELECOMMUNICATIONS RIGGING
- OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS PLATFORMS
- RESOURCES SECTOR
- POWER STATIONS
THE MAC-PRO PROVIDES A SMOOTH EDGE FOR A ROPE PATH, PROVIDING EDGE PROTECTION WHILST THREADED THROUGH THE APERTURE OF TYPICAL STEEL GRID-MESH
THE MAC-PRO FITS MOST INDUSTRIAL STEEL GRID MESH
They can fit one or two 11mm or 13mm industrial static kernmantle ropes, making feeding ropes through grid mesh and retrieving them a quick and simple exercise.
The protector can be secured to the grid mesh with the supplied cord to prevent it becoming a dropped object.
temperature of 170ËšC
Extremely high protection against UV degradation
High density nylon to prevent material crushing
High wear resistance facilitating lowering off personnel in emergency scenarios
1) Please note the mac-pro is not a friction modifier device and should not be used in extreme friction scenarios. 2) While the mac-pro is structurally sound enough to handle a 90 degree deviation, the grid mesh you are using might not be, ropes should be vertical before passing through the mac-pro when possible. 3) mac-pros are designed and tested for use with static kernmantle ropes only. The use of flexible steel wire ropes in conjunction with the mac-pro is not recommended and should not be undertaken.
