Capital Safety Confined Space
In confined space entry and confined space rescue situations, your safety equipment must operate quickly and flawlessly. That’s why Capital Safety developed an extensive line of high quality, rugged rescue and retrieval systems that meet a variety of confined space safety needs, plus offers customized solutions.
Our confined space safety systems have delivered decades of trusted service and meet applicable industry standards, so it’s no surprise that our confined space equipment is the first choice of safety engineers and site directors.
Confined spaces vary in size, shape and location and there isn’t a standard or typical application. A confined space safety system can usually be divided into either a “vertical” entry type system or “horizontal” type.
If entering confined spaces such as a manhole on a street vertical confined space rescue equipment is needed. Some confined spaces require entry from the side such as a tank, and for these you’ll need a side-entry or horizontal type confined space safety equipment.

MSA XTIRPA confined space entry systems allow for vertical or horizontal entry into many common confined space applications such tanks, vessels, transformers, sewers & manholes. These systems are lightweight, portable and easy to setup allowing for users to save time throughout the workday.
