AVAHO descent equipment


The AVAHO ascent, descent and rescue equipment has a three-phase engine and is perfectly recommended for use in confined spaces such as wells, furnaces, sewage plants, sewers, dam gates, water treatment plants, etc.

The AVAHO is composed of a chair, basket or suspended basket for one person, hanging by steel wires from a suspended boom equipped with an e.lift® 280 electric lift, a securichute 600 fall arrester, a cable collector and a retractable fall arrester that complies with EN360. The jib is fixed to the slab by means of a fixed base.

The maximum height of use is 60 meters, according to the configuration of the equipment, so it will be important to know the working height to ensure the configuration of the AVAHO.

The AVAHO equipment is removable and transportable, making it easy for the user to install it in different places. Its handling is easy and allows to raise and lower people in a fast and safe way. The AVAHO equipment has two control posts: one wirelessly next to the chair or hanging basket and the other at the suspension boom support level.
