Climb Assist Equipment

Wind turbines without service lifts can be equipped with a climb assist system to facilitate the users’ climbing up the tower using an endless rope with a tensile strength ranging between 30 and 40 kilos, which saves considerable effort.

Quite frequently these devices loosen or break down, usually due to misuse. That’s why they must be adequately used and maintained in order to comply with OEM instructions and recommendations.

Manufacturers specify that lift inspections should be performed once a year and, depending on how intensively they are used, within shorter periods.
