Magnet System for Rope Access

Abfad's Patented Magnetic Positioning Aid

Abfad’s Unique Magnet System – Patented Solutions to Engineering Problems

With its engineering experience, the Abfad team have focused on bringing innovative, cost effective solutions to common engineering problems. Abfad’s patented permanent Magnet System has proven invaluable in areas that can only be accessed by rope but need a reliable method of moving the rope technician closer to the working surface and anchoring them securely to enable them to carry out any required work. Use of this Magnet System provides the user with a productivity advantage, increasing the speed of work, such as, blasting, mechanical surface preparation, welding, drilling, NDT inspections etc. by securing the rope technician to the ferrous substrate and enabling a greater precision of work. Our patented Magnet System has been developed for rope access technicians by rope access technicians, as a need for this type of device was discovered whilst working on certain jobs, other methods of working were found to be time consuming, lacking in efficiency and in some cases completely ineffective. They have been used by Abfad on many projects and tested rigorously, including by the TWI (The Welding Institute) who have also tested the pull off strength of the magnets.

“Abfad’s Magnet System is designed to be a long lasting high quality item and is constructed from 316L Stainless Steel to the highest specifications”

What can this Magnet System be used for?

Abfad’s patented Magnet System is not intended for use as a method of life support, rope access techniques will need to be utilised whilst using this product.
