The Arachnipod in its basic form is a tripod. It consists of three telescoping legs, each pivotally connected to an anodised head.
The head is produced from aluminium extrusion with cutouts down each side. These cutouts allow two or more heads to connect together with a Quik-link pin, similar to a hinge, which allow quick and simple addition or removal of legs or bridge to create different configurations.
The Arachnipod Industrial Tripod is a self-supporting device providing quick and easy access to confined space entry points such as manholes and voids. This system can also be used as a high directional frame. A unique feature of the Arachnipod is that it ‘flat packs’ for convenient storage, yet is quick and easy to set up. The system can be used with either a winch retrieval system or a mechanical advantage system or both. The Arachnipod Industrial Plus Tripod includes 1 leg with a pulley head to maximize vertical haul height.
