Welcome to Gin Poles with Tom Wood & Vertical Rescue Solutions
The use of elevated anchors or Artificial High Directionals (AHDs) is a mandatory requirement of NFPA 1670 for rope technicians. Do you know how to successfully — and confidently — use this equipment?
As with all anchor systems, we must have a complete working knowledge of force vector analysis and resultant management. Inside Gin Poles with Tom Wood & Vertical Rescue Solutions, you’ll learn the ins and outs of building a monopod, or gin pole, and the necessary guying systems (separate anchor points) needed to deploy this bomber anchor system. Elevated anchors are designed specifically for edge management or lessening edge trauma. The product in this course is the TerrAdaptor from PMI-SMC.
