Tethering - Safety
We recommend the right option based on your requirements, can assist with the installation and provide the tethering equipment at an additional cost.
Deployment has been designed so that in most cases personnel do no not have to enter the water, thus removing health and safety risk. Once the device is activated, (a process which takes 3 minutes), the field user can tether it to supplied hardware or existing infrastructure, and then leave it until the next visit.
Solution based service
The custom tethering option is best suited for waterways with a non-standard stage height variation, greater than 1.5m.
The solution can be customised to your needs based on height variation and location.
We explore the tethering options using existing structures like a bridge, jetty, stock exclusion fence or similar. The tether rope attachment can be either a steel cable or strong nylon rope.
