Easy to setup, position and reposition.
The EMU system can be put together by a single (qualified) individual, the mast inserted into the base and then picked up by your favorite large tractor capable of moving more than 5000 lbs. The base features forklift pockets in each side, making it quite easy to position in narrow spaces like between two semi-trucks.
Easy adjusting and maximum flexibility
The EMU system is literally the most flexible fall arrest access system - not only can it be setup by a single qualified person - but can also be positioned and rotated into awkward positions. Hook yourself up, get the work down and move it back to the shop - simple.
Don't forget your base!
Your 21' fixed-height EMU system will need a base. The base provides the counterweight for the system and simply slides into base to attach. Each base includes forklift pockets on each side, making it easy to move around the compound. Bases are sold with or without the 5,000 lbs of cement, and can include an extender pole.
