Ferno - Arachnipod Tripod (Standard)


Learn More about Ferno's Arachnipod System & Rescue Kit


The Arachnipod is a self-supporting device providing quick and easy access to confined space entry points such as manholes and voids. The modular tripod system is also expandable making it an ideal system for workers in industries such as rescue and emergency services, construction, military, utility services, mining, film and maintenance.

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. For heavy loads, four legs can used to form a quadpod and increase the safe working load (SWL).

The Arachnipod Tripod comprises two Standard Legs and a Pulley Leg. The system provides two load attachment points, three stabilisation rigging points plus a double-grooved pulley.

The Arachnipod's uniquely designed head system allows the legs to be quickly disconnected from each other to store flat for compact storage and transportation. Each of the legs is supplied with an upgraded Standard Foot 2.
