Handrail Recovery Monopole

A practice for raising a person or rescue stretcher over an edge is to use the handrail as the artificial high directional. The handrail may not be designed to take the load and it also adds a lot of friction to the haul.

By using the pulley leg, a simple system can be easily set up to be able to retrieve a rescue stretcher or person, over an edge and through the lower handrail gap. This effectively transfers the load through the leg sharing the load with the handrail. It is essential to assess the load bearing capacity of the handrail prior to using this method.
