AVAHO M descent equipment


The AVAHO M ascent, descent and rescue equipment would be the equivalent of the AVAHO but without engine, with manual lift, and like the AVAHO, is an ideal system to be used in confined spaces such as sewers, dam gates, water treatment plants, wells, furnaces or treatment plants.

The main components of the AVAHO M are the single-person chair, basket, or hanging cabin, suspended by steel cables from a suspension boom equipped with an m.lift® 400 electric lift, an EN795B hand-crank rescue device, and a retractable fall arrester with rescue device complying with EN360. The suspension is anchored to the slab using a fixed base.

The maximum height of use is 60 meters, depending on the equipment’s configuration, so it will be essential to know the working size to ensure a suitable AVAHO M design.
