Manufactured by TMI
UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - General Use

The father of all portable artificial high directional systems (AHD), the AZ Vortex is a tripod, bipod and monopod in one all-inclusive kit. Its precision two-piece head can be rigged as a standard tripod or, in advanced applications, as an A-frame, a sideways A-frame, or a gin pole. The tripod can be formed into an easel A-frame with adjustable leg lengths. The versatile third leg allows rescuers to set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial, or wilderness location.
(View Arizona Vortex Components below.)

On A-frame and easel A-frame applications, pulleys can be attached using quick-pins directly into the Head Set without carabiners, eliminating lost headspace and working clearance. This feature makes the AZ Vortex ideal for use with high lines and tracking line offsets. The extra attachment points also work well for rope access where several lines may be needed over the edge. Raptor and Flat foot sets are both included to provide a secure footing on varying terrain.

Arizona Vortex package comes with the Vortex Bag System, designed for ultimate accessibility and quick access, the high-vis backpack-style bags are extremely rugged and able to be carried on the back into the wilderness or in an industrial environment. Made of durable Cordura® nylon, they feature extra protection in high-wear places for exceptional longevity.

Also included brightly colored pin flags for attachment to pins to increase visibility and two 18 kN MBS 8mm accessory cords for tethering the Vortex and securing the legs. (Made by Rock Exotica).
