Ferno Arachnipod is the world’s most versatile modular total edge management system (TEMS). Components can be added or removed as required so that the Arachnipod complements existing structural or natural features.
The unique design of the patent-pending modular head means the Arachnipod can be constructed into many different configurations including a ginpole/monopole, bipod, tripod, quadpod, bridge system and handrail recovery monopole. For heavy loads, four legs can used to form a quadpod and increase the safe working load (SWL).
Its versatility makes it an ideal system for workers in industries such as rescue and emergency services, construction, military, utility services, mining, film and maintenance. Approved to CE Standard EN 795B
The Arachnipod, in its most basic form, is a simple tripod with the three legs independently pivoting from an anodised aluminium head. The modular head has a similar design to a door hinge. Inserting or removing a pin through the centre of the head allows the quick and simple addition or removal of components to create a configuration to suit any edge management scenario. Each head section contains a shackle for guying while an optional in-built twin grooved stainless steel pulley is also available.
The Arachnipod flat packs for simple and convenient storage and the modular design provides an option to purchase a basic unit and upgrade components to make a more advanced system.
There are numerous kits available ranging from the basic tripod through to a total edge management system (TEMS).
