Harken Industrial has introduced the PowerSeat, a sit-on powered ascender touted as a first for people working at heights.

Harken Industrial PowerSeat

Designed for use anywhere that rope access is possible, the Harken Power Seat is suitable for industrial maintenance, architectural and construction work, wind turbine and offshore construction, engineering and inspections, marine and rigging, and search and rescue.

Features and Design

The PowerSeat works with standard approved personal fall arrest systems but does not replace them. The fail-safe brake system protects from a free fall. In an emergency, the PowerSeat can be evacuated safely and left behind, as the operator is already clipped to conventional harness equipment.

Harken says the PowerSeat is simple to operate and has a full, 360-degree working area that allows unobstructed work, even in confined areas. The portable unit weighs just 14 kilograms (30.8 pounds) and is made to be strong, durable and corrosion resistant.

The PowerSeat load rating allows for a maximum working load of 273 kilograms (601.8 pounds), allowing it to handle a two-person load in rescue situations.

The manufacturer says the PowerSeat allows workers to work in comfort at heights for extended periods, increasing productivity by up to 50 percent.

Based in Pewaukee, WI, Harken Industrial is a division of Harken Inc., manufacturer of international performance sailing hardware. Harken Industrial designs and manufactures a broad range of material-handling apparatus. Its products include low-friction winches, pulleys, linear motion carriages, and rail and roller furling equipment.
