The Edge

A KICK PLATE EDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Edge

The Edge has been designed for use with Wire Rope Rigging Slings, Nylon & Natural fiber Ropes as a physical barrier to assist in the protection of the slings or rope from coming into contact with the sharp edges of the Kick-Plate during normal use.

Weight

The Edge should not be used if the expected load on the Rope exceeds 250kg regardless of the entry angle into the device.

Load Rating

The Edge, and all of its parts is never to be considered, or used as an anchoring device or an “anchorage” itself, and therefore, does not hold a rating.

The Edge Sharp Edge Management System is designed for use on varying sizes & depths of “Kick-Plate” found on industrial & commercial work sites.

The Edge has been designed for use with Wire Rope Rigging Slings, Nylon & Natural fiber Ropes as a physical barrier to assist in the protection of the slings or rope from coming into contact with the sharp edges of the Kick-Plate during normal use.

When rigging steel rope slings over kick-plate, they are often damaged due to acute “kinking”. The Edge device mitigates this problem by offering a rounded surfaces to rest upon.

In Industrial Rope Access, all Ropes shall be rigged in such a way so as to avoid contact with potential hot, sharp or abrasive surfaces that threaten the integrity of the life supporting Rope Access system.
