The Harken® PowerSeat™* is a groundbreaking in-seat powered ascender/descender for vertical rope access. Operated by gas, the PowerSeat is designed to stay in an upright position, allowing technicians to work comfortably at height and to complete tasks quickly. Safety is paramount. A dead man’s switch controls ascent speed up to 15 m/min (49.2 ft/min), while a fail-safe braking system controls descent and prevents free-falls. The Harken PowerSeat™ is built of strong, noncorrosive materials and weighs just 30.80 lbs (14.000 kg) for easy hand carry. Maximum working load is 601.80 lbs (73.000 kg), allowing two-person rescue operations. It is CE certified to Machinery Directive and verified by Bureau Veritas. The PowerSeat’s many applications include: mountain rescue, industrial maintenance, wind turbine & offshore construction, engineering and inspections, marine & rigging. It can also be used in horizontal configurations to haul material or fixed -point rigging for rescue. *Must be used with a Fall-Arrest system
