[Personnel Lifting]

Almost the whole of REID’s product range can be adapted for personnel lifting (man-ride) usage, and in many cases systems can be dual-rated for both goods and personnel lifting. For over 15 years, REID has provided a wide range of standard and custom personnel lifting and fall arrest and retrieval solutions for confined space and work at height use (with EN795 Class B classification).

The PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE has been specifically developed for such applications to provide additional capability and safer use in confined space and work at height applications, with its wide range of goods and personnel lifting capabilities.

Please discuss all personnel lifting applications with REID to ensure the optimum configuration and the correct selection of accessories.
