ARACHNIPOD - Bridge System
This is a feature unique to the Arachnipod. The bridge is used for spanning larger openings or voids where a regular tripod, A-frame or quadpod would not be able to, such as trenches, large holes, mines and lift shafts.
It comes as a complete item with trolley, trolley guide rope and heads ready to attach two legs on each end. There is also a tie bar on one end for use with an English Reeve system. However, a remote brake mechanical advantage system can also be attached directly to the trolley.
Standard lengths are 2 m (6 ft 7 in), 3 m (9 ft 10 in) and 4 m (13 ft 1 in). The bridge is available separately. If you have a standard tripod you can upgrade to a bridge system by purchasing a bridge kit, which will include a bridge and an additional standard leg.
When a TEMS is purchased a 2 m bridge and additional leg come standard, however, if you require a longer bridge this should be specified on placement of the order.
