The Harken Industrial PowerSeat has revolutionized rope access and rescue, allowing the operator to ascend or descend effortlessly, stay in position longer, and work in greater comfort during rescue operations. With gasoline and battery powered units – also available in “compact” versions – these durable, portable, and certified systems enhance safety and reduce fatigue for users.
PowerSeat ascenders decrease the risk of operator injury when working, offering logistical gains in most areas of project delivery. With quick setup in multiple orientations, it can reduce equipment needs and reduce man-hours required for many projects.
The PowerSeat is operated by a simple control. The electric and battery models have single-speed ascent, while the gas version is variable. Descent speed is controlled manually via the winch’s captive jaws, which protect from free fall.
