While the Standard Kit will certainly be enough for most situations, some teams will pick up a few extra items to extend the capability of the ARIZONA VORTEX For instance, if the rescue team wishes to build a high equal-sided tripod 3.0min height for confined space entry with plenty of head room, ordering 2 extra lower legs (making the total nine (9) instead of seven (7) will allow each leg of the tripod to have three (3) total lower legs.

The Ferno Arachnipod is the world’s most versatile modular total edge management system (TEMS). Components can be added or removed as required so that the Arachnipod complements existing structural or natural features. The unique design of the patent-pending modular head means the Arachnipod can be constructed into many different configurations including a ginpole/monopole, bipod, tripod, quadpod, bridge system and handrail recovery monopole. For heavy loads, four legs can used to form a quadpod and increase the safe working load (SWL). Its versatility makes it an ideal system for workers in industries such as rescue and emergency services, construction, military, utility services, mining, film and maintenance. Approved to CE Standard EN 795B
The Vortex has a two-piece break-apart head that can be rigged as a standard tripod, or in advanced applications, as an A-Frame, a sideways A-Frame, or a Gin Pole. The "easel" leg allows the tripod to be leaned to form an easel A-Frame, placing anchor points closer to the cliff or structure edge. With adjustable leg lengths and a versatile third leg, the Multipod lets rescuers set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial or wilderness location. Three different types of Vortex feet are available to provide secure footing on varying terrain. • Weight: 28 kg • Proof loaded: 23 kN• Safe working load: 2.7 kN
The Flat Foot is designed to work well on flat surfaces such as floors, roadways or roofs and has a wide surface area, which helps prevent penetration. The Flat Foot features a rubber layer on the bottom to provide optimal grip on flat surfaces. Four anchor points in each corner of the foot, as well as a hole in the leg, allow for a variety of anchoring/hobbling options• Weight: Approx 1.3kg
