Ports and Harbours




There are over 950 ports, harbours, jetties and piers around the coastline of the UK – All surrounded by water Reach and Rescue are a supplier to many ports in the UK and the world. We provide our long reach telescopic pole systems to the largest Port in the UK and many others. Not only do we supply the Water Rescue equipment, we also supply a container release attachment to assist in releasing container hooks without deploying abseiling trained personnel which take time and of course, the risk “The reason we purchased the poles was that it not only had a number of attachments which meant it was capable of doing a number of tasks but also its the only pole that we could find that reaches up to 17 metres. The reach is important as this gives us a capability to reach those persons who we could not before, but we were also impressed with the high degree of control which we have with the pole at those distances.”
