• Michael DouglasEntering a Confined Space? Consider Using Xtirpa.

    If you’re entering a confined space, you’ve got a lot of things to consider – namely, how do you plan on getting your workers out in the event of an emergency? That’s where Xtirpa comes in.

    Xtirpa is a new line of innovative, ergonomic line of confined space rescue products. Made up of a customizable, configurable system, Xtirpa works for any kind of entry, whether it’s vertical or horizontal.

    The base of the confined space system starts with a davit arm and manhole guard, then adds on the accessories you need to perform rescue in the event of an emergency. The possibilities for the Xtirpa are endless, and include common applications like:

    • Manholes
    • Vaults
    • Boilers
    • Tanks
    • Furnaces
    • Sewers
    • Pits
    • Trenches
    • Tunnels
    • Silos
    • Ducts

    The Davit System

    The adjustable davit system was designed with greater versatility in mind. With the ability to position it from 30”, 36” or 48”, workers have easy and safe access into a variety of confined spaces where conventional systems are often impractical.

    The Manhole Guard

    The portable manhole guard has an integrated mast that transforms Xtirpa into a confined space fall protection and retrieval unit when used in tandem with the davit system. You’ll be able to access sewers or any other underground confined space area where manhole guards are required.

    Economical, Ergonomic, and Easy to Use

    Xtirpa is the only patented, two-piece system on the market that allows you to install a davit arm on manhole guard for rescue. It’s lightweight, ergonomic design is easy to transport and can be installed by just one person in THREE minutes! Saving time by eliminating complex assembly saves money and increases productivity, all while providing the peace of mind your workers need to feel comfortable entering a confined space. And although the Xtirpa system weighs less than 70 pounds, it still offers rescue abilities for up to 420 pounds.

    No Shortcuts on Safety

    The Xtirpa system meets or exceeds all applicable ANSI, OSHA, CSST and CE standards. And since it’s a multiple use system, you can add or remove different combinations of components to the universal system, allowing you to secure all of your confined spaces safely.
