New Partner: PEAR PAC
The latest addition to PACE Networks offering for rail overhead line teams is the invaluable Pear Pac.
This health and safety device not only reduces trip hazards, improves worker carrying loads, and avoids injuries to staff, but it also speeds up the process of taking an isolation, with hands now free for gates and balance. Behind the development of the patented Pear Pac was the in-depth knowledge of UK isolation teams, well versed in the challenges of flexible earths over the shoulder hitting shins and knees and RoLE boards cutting hands.
The new Pear Pac, so called for the shape of the cables when applied, features a well-padded and adjustable backpack, and an adjoining plate with mounted prongs. These are shaped to allow easy wrapping of flexible earths, and attachment of RoLE boards and other OLE equipment. Carrying this equipment on a linesperson’s back greatly reduces any risk of injury, increases comfort, lowers fatigue, and speeds up the isolation process.
“We are pleased to add this to our OLE low level surveying tools. The health and safety of workers is of utmost importance, and Pear Pac’s ability to reduce workplace injuries whilst increasing productivity is invaluable.” Sam Roberts, Business Development Director Rail, PACE Networks.
