Arizona Vortex Tripod Kit

SKU: 727300

Product Info

The Arizona Vortex is the ultimate artificial high directional system (AHD). The Vortex can be set up in multiple configurations including tripod, bi-pod and monopod. Separately the two heads create an a-frame, gin pole, a combination of the two, as well as a multitude of other configurations. The Vortex can be used in a variety of situations including mountain and confined space rescue as well as rope and work access. Many companion products exist to extend the functionality of the Vortex, such as the Omni-block, AZTEK, Kootenay and AZORP, whic allow it to meet virtually any requirement for a portable AHD system.

The Vortex is a tripod, bipod and monopod in one all-inclusive kit. Its precision two-piece head can be rigged as a standard tripod or, in advanced applications, as an A-frame, a sideways A-frame, a gin pole or a multitude of other configurations. The tripod can be formed into an easel A-frame with adjustable leg lengths. The versatile third leg allows rescuers to set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial or wilderness location. On A-frame and easel A-frame applications, pulleys can be attached using quick-pins directly into the Head Set without using carabiners, eliminating lost headspace and working clearance. This feature makes the Vortex ideal for use with high lines and tracking line offsets. The extra attachment points also work well for rope access where several lines may be needed over the edge. Raptor and Flat feet sets are both included to provide secure footing options on varying terrain.
