Northern Divers Water Rescue Reach Poles provide a rapid, agile method to reach a conscious in-water casualty. The poles can equally be used to retrieve items from the water. The carbon fibre construction means they are five times as strong as steel, yet weigh about two-thirds less, making it very easy to operate at such lengths. Pole sections cannot be fully separated, each section has a clamp that unlocks a section and enables easy adjustment for fast extraction and retraction. On the tip of the pole is an aluminum bayonet fitting for use with the poles quick-release accessories.
The lightweight yet strong design guarantees control and confidence in the reach pole which gives the user accuracy and speed in crucial rescue situations. The design also ensures high levels of stiffness and rigidity, even when extended to its full length, reducing unwanted flexing and keeping the Rescue Reach Pole in the desired position.
