Mac-pro has been developed, tested and made in Australia. Using a heavy duty and robust nylon compound for protection against sharp edges, rope wear and high surface temperatures. The mac-pro provides a smooth edge for a rope path, providing edge protection whilst threaded through the aperture of typical steel grid-mesh.
Mac-Pro's are sold in pairs.
Technicians should always ensure precautions are taken to prevent damage to anchor lines when they are in use. Hazards such as sharp edges, abrasive surfaces, corrosive substances and heat sources are common in the workplace and may damage ropes which may come into contact with them or close proximity.
Wherever possible, any hazard that could cause damage to the anchor lines should be removed. Technicians should utilise the hierarchical approach when identifying rope protection and edge management methodology, which prioritises the removal of hazards before considering avoidance through rigging methods or mitigation through rope protection.
