The composite pole climber has been developed in close cooperation with swedish Telia and ergonomic experts to reduce knee and back strain. The footplate is made out of glassfibre reinforced nylon and the gripping arm out of epoxy. Straps are made from polyester. The pole climber is very light and comfortable compared to traditional steel climbers. The advantage of the composite material is lack of microscopic cracks as with metallic climbers. According to regulation climbers are to be inspected annually and have a life time of 10 years. The climbers has been tested according to swedish regulation AFS 2000.6.
