Now officially ANSI certified, the former G.Tripod will be rebranded and sold as the SENTRY Tripod, harmonising it with Globestock Safety's recent revamp of their popular SAVER and STOP products.

The G.Tripod 230, launched in early 2021, quickly gained widespread adoption by confined space operators due to its innovative features, such as the smart folding head, for quick and easy assembly, and the exclusive 'compact' height option.

With a maximum working load of 200 kg (for personnel) and (250 kg for loads) the SENTRY Tripod allows simultaneous use by multiple individuals. Its lightweight design ensures durability, providing a secure anchorage for confined space access and rescue. To complement the rebrand, the design has been updated to include an upgraded stainless steel locking pin, improving durability even further.

True to its new name, the SENTRY Tripod stands tall, dependable, and prepared for action. Click here to view.

A framed BSIF Registered Safety Supplier certificate

Globestock Safety is now a BSIF Registered Safety Supplier

Registered Safety Supplier Scheme:

All personal protective equipment (PPE) must undergo accurate testing and certification to meet the relevant European standards. Unfortunately, there is a growing influx of non-approved products being circulated in the UK. These unauthorized items pose a serious risk to safety and should not be utilized for business activities, as they violate safety legislation.

Numerous products claim to have CE approvals, but many lack the appropriate certification. Even more concerning, some items are counterfeit versions of existing products. Our observation indicates that such products fail to perform as expected, jeopardizing lives and potentially leading to legal consequences for the user.

To address this issue, the BSIF has established the Registered Safety Supplier (RSS) scheme. Companies displaying the scheme's logo have formally declared their commitment to providing safety equipment that meets the required standards, fully adheres to PPE regulations, and bears the appropriate CE marking.

All Registered Safety Suppliers undergo independent audits to verify their compliance with the scheme's standards.

It's crucial to remember that opting for a Registered Safety Supplier ensures you receive genuine, appropriately approved products. You can trust that the advice provided will be accurate and transparent, without any attempts to mislead you.

The latest publication is much more than a simple update. The below image highlights (in green) all the changes between the old standard and the new – there is a lot of green.

en360 2023 highlighted changes

EN 360 is the European Standard for retractable-type fall arresters (SRLs). One of the main advancements of the 2023 version is the more stringent testing requirements. Notably, the dynamic testing requirements have been completely rewritten to better replicate the extreme conditions fall arrest equipment might undergo, including a wide temperature range and performance near full extraction. More thorough testing could mean that products certified to the new standard are safer to use than those only conforming to the old 2002 standard.

The 2023 publication supersedes all previous editions. Because of this, all fall arresters conforming to previous versions must be re-tested and recertified, when their current certificates expire.  For some manufacturers, this may require product designs to be modified and could even result in some products being withdrawn from sale.

Globestock are well prepared for the updated standard, and we are confident to complete certification within a couple of months. We will post updates as soon as completed.

We are committed to producing the best safety equipment for confined space access and work at height. For those who work in the height safety industry and pride themselves on delivering the best equipment to operators/clients, we would suggest adopting EN 360:2023 products as early as possible. Safety without compromise.
