NFPA Configuration

The primary system revolves around the TerrAdaptor Tripod System. This system includes all of the necessary parts to assemble a standard symmetric tripod that provides the ability to reach a height of approximately 10-feet. The system comes packaged in three compact packable bags to make it easy to “grab your bags and go” as well as store the System together in an organized manner.


The TerrAdaptor system has been tested extensively in both lab and field environments. As a result, the TerrAdaptor Portable Anchor system in the standard symmetric tripod and quadpod configurations are the only systems of their kind to be certified by UL to NFPA 1983
