  1. 3Z RF Vision Antenna Aligner Warranty & Damage Protection Plan

    Antenna alignment is an important part of installing and maintaining antennas. Without proper alignment, you can run into a whole slew of issues like coverage gaps, network performance gradation, and loss of revenue. That’s where an antenna aligner like the 3Z RF Vision Antenna Alignment Tool comes in. In the first three parts of our four-part blog series on the 3Z Vision Antenna Alignment Tool, we covered the device itself, the tools and accessories that can make the antenna aligner extremely versatile, and how to properly care for and inspect your antenna aligner. This week our Gear Experts® are going to cover the warranty and replacement plan available for the 3Z Vision Antenna Aligner.

    Warranty


     

    The warranty for the 3Z RF Vision Antenna Aligner is similar to many standard warranties for electronic devices. We will outline some of the points below but recommend that you read this document which covers the Manufacturer’s Warranty in its entirety as well.

    What Is Covered

    The warranty is a limited warranty that covers factory defects in materials and workmanship in the product(s). It is effective for one (1) year from the date of original purchase and includes hardware as well as firmware and software updates.

    What Isn't Covered

    The warranty, like most warranties, doesn’t cover damage, deterioration, or malfunction resulting from any alteration, modification, improper or unreasonable use or maintenance, misuse, abuse, accident, neglect, exposure to excess moisture, fire, improper packing and shipping (such claims must be presented to the carrier), lightning, power surges, or other acts of nature. Basically, take care of the device and don’t try to fix it yourself if something starts malfunctioning. If you start having issues, contact one of our Gear Experts® and we will help you get the process started.

    Who Is Covered


     

    It is important for us to mention that only the original purchaser of the RF Vision Antenna Aligner is covered under the warranty. This means that the warranty is non-transferrable, and you will need proof of purchase in order to make a claim.

    For more information about the warranty claim click here.

    As you see from the warranty information, not everything is covered. Not to mention that the warranty only covers the first year of you owning the device. That’s where something like the Damage Protection Plan comes into play.

    Damage Protection Plan


     

    The damage protection plan is an optional plan that can be purchased in conjunction with the 3Z RF Vision Antenna Aligner. This plan is unique because it can be renewed every two years – ensuring that you never have to go a minute without being covered.

    Included in the Damage Protection Plan

    The damage protection plan covers:

    → Bi-annual premium calibration for the term life of the plan ($895.00 value per 2 years)

    → Bi-Annual battery replacement included for the term life of the plan during bi-annual calibration ($595.00 value per 2 years)

    → The manufacturer´s warranty is extended during the Damage Protection Plan period.

    → Bi-annual cleaning, and/or tune-ups during included recalibrations.

    → Damage caused by accidental physical damage including unit dropped from buildings and towers.

    → Damage caused by spilled liquids or accidental rain.

    → Cosmetic defects or damage (such as cracked outer cases, cracked LCD screens) or defects that inhibit the proper operation and performance of the covered items.

    → Electrical damage caused by improper or over-charging of battery or using incorrect voltage outlets or incorrect recharging adapters.

    → Damage due to dust, animal or insect infestation.

    → Repair or replacement due to vandalism, riot, or general environmental conditions, including but not limited to rust, corrosion or mold.

    The Fine Print

    The damage protection plan is subject to the following

    → Each time a 3Z RF Vision is sent to repair, 3Z Telecom will charge an Evaluation Fee of $99.95 to evaluate the condition and repair plan required for the equipment.

    → The 3Z RF Vision is subject to a $2,000 deductible in the event that a full replacement of the product is required.

    → The damage protection plan cannot be transferred to any other alignment tool.

    → All shipping and associated costs are the responsibility of the owner and not included in the damage protection plan.

  3. Cold Stress 101

    It seems like just yesterday we were focusing on heat and how to work in it. But, with winter in full swing, it’s time to talk about the cold. This week our Gear Experts® are going to discuss cold stress and how you can combat it while on the job site.

    Cold Stress


     

    Cold stress isn’t something that people typically talk about. While heat stress is mentioned often and everyone at least knows a little bit about it cold stress doesn’t get nearly as much coverage. But its effects can be just as damaging to your body. So, what is cold stress? Cold stress occurs when your body can no longer maintain its normal temperature. When your skin temperature drops low enough it can begin to lower your internal body temperature.

    To maintain your vital organs, the body reroutes blood away from your external extremities in an effort to keep your core temperature up. This blood flow change can cause serious complications or even death. When gauging whether or not cold stress is a threat keep these 3 things in mind:

    Dampness & Windchill

    → Pre-existing health conditions and poor physical conditioning

    → Improper attire

    Cold Stress Injuries & Illness


     

    Cold stress, like heat stress, can cause serious illness. Common injuries and illnesses of cold stress include:

    → Hypothermia: A dangerously low body temperature that can result in gangrene or death.

    → Frostbite: The freezing of body tissue (usually skin) that results when the body redirects blood flow away from the outer extremities.

    → Trench Foot: A foot condition caused by overexposure to cold water or mud. Causes the surface tissue of the foot to die and turn black.

    Staying Warm


     

    While the threat of cold stress is serious, the solution to prevent it is simple: dress properly. Dressing for cold weather is the most important and effective precaution you can take to reduce the chances of cold stress. Here are some of our favorite options when it comes to protecting yourself from the cold:

    Ergodyne 6466 N-Ferno Thermal Jacket


     

    The Ergodyne 6466 N-Ferno Thermal Jacket is your first line of defense against winter weather. Let’s break down what makes this jacket so effective. On the outside, it features a 500D Nylon body with 1600D Nylon reinforced zones in the upper arm and shoulder section to protect from wear and tear. It also features a waterproof coating to prevent liquid from making contact with your skin (remember that dampness can lead to cold stress). The inside is made of 3M Thinsulate insulation which provides top-notch warmth with a quilted layer for comfort.

    This jacket isn’t short of storage either. Whether you are carrying hand warmers or something like a two way radio this jacket can handle it. It features two exterior pockets on the front and back and it has an interior device pocket. The YK zippers and spandex cuffs on the arms help seal out the cold and keep you nice and warm.

    Milwaukee M12 Heated Jacket


     

    The Milwaukee M12 Heated Jacket comes in a variety of colors and styles. It is also available in a “kit” version that includes a battery and charger. This jacket combines toughness and technology to redefine layering on the job site. The key feature of this jacket is the carbon fiber heating element that creates and distributes heat across the chest and back. The jacket is powered by an M12 Red Lithium Battery that provides 8 hours of runtime. It also features a one-touch LED controller that allows you to choose from 3 heat settings per zone. The three zones are chest, back, and front hand pocket (the chest and back zone can be adjusted independently from the front hand pocket zone).

    Now, let’s talk about toughness. This jacket is made out of 900D ripstop polyester with nine riveted reinforced pockets (including battery pocket). It features integrated knit cuffs, an exterior storm flap, and a drop tail extended back for maximum comfort and coverage. And, most importantly, it’s washer and dryer safe so you can get it dirty and throw it in the laundry without having to worry about a thing.

    Cold stress is no joke, but it’s pretty simple to prevent. If you need help finding the perfect winter solution for you and/or your crew or you just have questions about cold stress – click here to contact one of our Gear Experts®.

  4. Carabiner Gates 101

    There are few, if any, items in your gear bag that are as versatile as a carabiner. Carabiners come in all shapes, sizes, and strengths and making sure that the carabiner you use is up to the task is an important part of your safety. In this blog post, our Gear Experts® are going to give you the low down on carabiner gates.

    Gate Ratings


     

    A carabiner gate is the portion of the carabiner that can open to allow the carabiner to attach to the item you want to attach it to. The gate will have a specific rating that states how many pounds of force can be applied on the gate before it is damaged. This rating is separate from the load rating of the carabiner and will be stamped directly on the gate. Typically, it will be in one of 3 formats: 3,600 lbs., 16kN, or 3.6m. If you do not see this stamp on your carabiner there’s a good chance you’re not in compliance and you should not continue to work with that gear.

    Hiking Through the Woods


     

    We’ve all see those carabiners that hold your keys or are used to connect your canteen to your hiking backpack. Imagine that you are on a hike and you have your canteen connected to your backpack with one of those carabiners. As you climb the motion of the backpack moving slowly wiggles the gate of the carabiner open and your canteen falls to the forest floor. You’re focused on getting to your campsite and you bought an ultra-lightweight canteen, so you don’t notice that it falls off – that is, until you go to get a nice refreshing drink of water. If only you had used a carabiner with a gate mechanism. Then your canteen wouldn’t have been able to be opened by accident and you wouldn’t have lost your favorite canteen.

    Carabiner Gate Mechanisms


     

    The purpose of carabiner gate mechanisms is to prevent the accidental opening of the carabiner while it is in use. Losing your canteen while hiking is bad but having your carabiner come detached from an anchorage point while you are 100 feet up on a tower is worse. Carabiner gates come in a few different varieties (screw-lock, twist-lock, and auto-lock). For tower climbing, the most common is the twist lock, but some other work may require another variety of gate function.

    Screw-Lock

    The screw-lock operates by unscrewing the sleeve down the gate to open. This gate will not auto-lock as the sleeve has to be manually tightened after the gate snaps shut.

    Twist-Lock

    The twist-lock is a double action gate that quickly opens with a simple twist and pull movement.

    Auto-Lock

    This is a three-stage design as it requires 3 different motions to open. First you pull the sleeve down, then twist, then pull back to open. Some auto-lock carabiners only twist in one direction, while others can twist left or right.

  5. Product Spotlight: Sterling Rope PDQ Tower Emergency Descent System

    In a perfect world, we would never have to talk about emergency situations. But, sometimes accidents happen and here a GME Supply we take pride in helping keep you safe on the job – and better informed about what gear can help when you need it the most. This week our Gear Experts® are going to cover the Sterling Rope PDQ Tower Emergency Descent System.

    What’s Included


     

    An emergency system isn’t very useful if it doesn’t have the gear needed to handle the situation in a safe and effective manner. So, let’s go over what is included in the Sterling Rope PDQ Tower Emergency Descent System.

    Descent Device

    This system features the Sterling Rope PDQ Control Descent Device. The PDQ Device is made from lightweight high strength aluminum and has an asymmetric cam, features hands-free lock-off, and an anti-panic feature. It weighs only 6.8 ounces and has an MBS of 13.3 kN.

    Rope

    Depending on the needs of your system you can get two different lengths of rope – 100 mm (328 ft) or 120 mm (394 ft). The rope is 6 mm XTEC Technora heat resistant high strength rope. It features a Technora sheath and the core offers maximum cut and abrasion resistance.

    Carabiners

    There are 2 ASD carabiners included in the system. They are auto-locking D-Shaped aluminum carabiners with a threaded captive eye pin and 3,600 lb gate.

    Bag

    The bag completes the system and provides an easy way to take the system up and down a tower. It is a weatherproof bag that also provides storage protection. The low profile roll top bag includes a shoulder strap for ease of transportation and has a 22-liter capacity.

    Features


     

    The Sterling Rope PDQ Escape System is lightweight and strong, making it ideal for tower, wind turbine, and other at-height applications. It is heat resistant to over 900°F, is rated up to 310 lbs., and meets ANSI Z359.4. The kit comes fully assembled and ready for fast deployment and it weighs under 10 lbs. – 8.85 lbs. to be exact.

    Mechanical Advantage


     

    If you’re looking to gain some mechanical advantage with the PDQ system you can easily pair it with the Sterling Rope PDQ Raise and Rescue Kit. The micro pulleys and anchor slings in this kit help to convert the PDQ Tower Descent kit to a mechanical advantage system for raising a fallen worker and transferring them to a lowering system.
