Delta Rigging & Tools, Inc., one of the largest providers of lifting and rigging products and related services in the United States, announced recently an agreement with Limpet Technology Limited as the primary distributor in North America and Australia in the Oil and Gas, Wind Power, Energy Generation, Construction, and Entertainment sectors.
The LimpetTM is a multi-functional height safety system that provides five key functions in one simple, reliable, and cost-effective system that offers significant cost of ownership benefits: Climb assist function increases productivity and reduces expensive downtime; “Always-on” fall prevention technology prevents accidents that cost lives, money and reputation; Market-leading rescue, evacuation and work-positioning technology; Reduced maintenance and servicing requirements; Minimum 25-year lifespan.
The Limpet was recently introduced at Delta Rigging & Tools’ facility in Angleton for safety and operations personnel from Delta’s client base to see first-hand. The demonstration provided the opportunity for customers to actively participate and experience how the technology eliminates the risk of an accidental fall, provides up to 90% reactive climb assist, and provides both emergency escape as well as remote rescue capabilities if a worker becomes incapacitated. This event proved that current industry safety standards can continue to be improved by the revolutionary Limpet Technology.
“We were able to demonstrate the product for the first time in North America at our facility in Angleton, Texas back in December of last year,” said Eric Johnson, VP of Marketing for Delta Rigging & Tools. “We were honored to have Mike Parnell, CEO of Industrial Training International and Vice Chair of the ASME B30 standards setting committee for cranes and rigging, as one of our guests. After testing the device himself, Mike commented that the Limpet was a ‘marvel’ that would change working at height safety across multiple industries.
“We’re excited to be the primary vendor for Limpet’s breakthrough technology in North America and Australia, across a range of industries that need a better fall protection solution than what they are forced to utilize today,” continued Johnson. “The Limpet is a game changer, and every company that has employees working at height needs to evaluate it to better protect their workers.”
John Reid, Chairman of Limpet Technology added, “Limpet Technology is delighted to have appointed Delta Rigging & Tools as their primary Distribution Partner. It is great to have such a well-respected company and market leader representing our brand and product in North America and Australia. The benefits of working with Delta in the future across a range of activities and industry sectors is paramount to continually enhancing design and functionality of the LimpetTM, which will benefit workers’ safety in a number of environments.”
