Having to flip through a handful of catalogs or thousands of web pages to find the gear you and your crew need can be time-consuming. That’s why our Gear Experts® have created tower climbing kits and can help you create custom kits that will save you time and make your job of buying a range of equipment easier and more cost-effective. These kits have a lot to offer.
Custom Kits Save
The custom kitting process is easy and typically takes only a few minutes to get a quote. First, you’ll start off by answering a few questions from one of our Gear Experts®. They have years of experience helping a variety of crews and they truly care about your business. They’re going to put in the effort to learn and understand your specific needs.
Attention to detail ensures your crew will be safe and fully compliant.
Kitting allows you to train your crew on the same equipment. Training your crew on the same gear adds a higher level of safety for many reasons.
Working with unfamiliar devices can add time to any task and can sometimes lead to accidents. It’s especially important for your whole team to understand how to handle another crew member’s gear in a rescue situation.
If everyone is using the same gear there will be much less room for confusion. When your crew is properly trained and comfortable working with their equipment they’ll handle these difficult situations quickly and safely.
Saving Time and Lowering Costs
The benefits we’ve already mentioned are designed to lower the overhead cost of managing your crew. Buying components in a kit will also save you time when placing an order and when receiving a shipment.
You don't have to wait on different shipping schedules for every single item when you buy a kit. Buying gear separately might not be a big issue on one or two items, but when you buy several things for multiple crew members those wait times can be a headache.
Invoicing and Inventory Control
If you plan on reordering your custom kit we can set up your kit with a custom part number. The part number can be invoiced as one line item to simplify the reordering process. This will save time during order review and payment. Your accounts payable team will thank you!
We also forecast our stock around your ordering schedule to make sure you’re always covered when you need it.
On top of all that, we can also brand the items in your kit. We can help place your company logo on helmets, vests, harnesses, signs, and a lot more.

What kind of kits are already assembled?
We have a wide range of tower climbing kits that are already assembled to include everything needed for a climber to work safely. The actual components of the kits vary depending on each kit and your preferences.
What do pre-assembled tower climbing kits come with?
What the kits include depends on the kit you choose and if you want add-on or upgrade items. However, the tower climbing kits all come with the standard equipment needed for a climber to work safely. Pre-assembled tower climbing kits all include a harness, a lanyard, and carabiners. Many of our kits also come with bolt bags, gloves, spreader bars, safety glasses, helmets, and cable safety sleeves.

There are a variety of ways you can fill out a rescue kit with gear. Generally speaking, no two rescues are the same. Every situation has its own circumstances which may require a slightly different set up. That’s where our knowledgeable, trained customer service folks come in to get you the right gear for your job.
We have a few different fundamental kits put together on our site which can be further customized. They’re comprised of the barebones pieces which will work in a basic rescue… let’s look at what’s in our Deluxe Rescue Kit:
For starters, you’ll need a good length of rope based on the distance you’ll be travelling during the rescue. Anchor that to the tower using a webbing sling and a carabiner. Along with that you’ll need some sort of descent device to help control your way back down the tower. We like the Petzl I’D. It’s well designed and works for a variety of tasks.
Next, you’ll need a way to raise the victim from his fall. A simple pick-off strap works for this, but if you want to make things a little easier on yourself… toss in a haul kit for a little mechanical advantage. These haul kits come pre-rigged and are kept in a nice pouch so they’re ready at a moment’s notice.
Finally, all of that goes into a kit bag to keep it together in your truck, just in case you’d ever need it.
Again… Just because we have these kits put together, doesn’t mean that they will be perfect in every situation. Perhaps your needs would require an automatic descent device, or maybe an extra pulley or two. A hand ascender could be added for another anchorage point on a rope or assist in climbing.
