The Gear Pilot concept makes the administration, inspection and documentation of PPE child's play

Discover a unique PPE concept for more transparency and efficiency.


The demands on users and rentals of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment against fall) are becoming more and more complex. The equipment must regularly be checked. Its use has to be documented. In the professional/commercial field, legislature has clearly defined the use of PPE. According to law, every distributing company is responsible for the perfect condition of their PPE. The same legal bases as in occupational safety also apply in the leisure sector, if climbing gear is handed over to third parties free of charge or against a fee. For operators of climbing gyms and adventure parks, alpine club sections, mountain guides, mountaineering schools, sports stores and tourism associations this represents a big challenge. Inspecting and documenting the use of PPE products is time-consuming and cost-intensive.

And this exactly is where the EDELRID GEAR PILOT comes into play. Our comprehensive tool for the registration, administration and inspection of PPE products eases your life considerably – thanks to a unique combination of APP, training sections and documentation. Get to know the GEAR PILOT App now! It is divided into three sections:



Administration, inspection and documentation of PPE products

The PPE section of the GEAR PILOT app is automatically unlocked as soon as a participant has successfully passed one of our DGUV trainings*. The qualified personnel for PPE is guided step by step through the inspection instructions with easy-to-understand graphics and images. In doing so, he or she gets instructions for visual inspection, mechanical functional testing as well as instructions for small repairs.

Furthermore, in the PPE Inspector section you can perform PPE inspections, generate product data sheets and send them out to your costumer. All data is stored in a central database and can be recalled by a PPE inspector in any place and at any time.

* Since 2014, EDELRID offers two-day trainings for the inspection of personal protective equipment at our company location in Isny. Participants are trained to become qualified personnel for PPE against falls. In addition to the standardised contents of the DGUV 312-906 the training also comprises the focus on PPE in sports and leisure. During the training, participants learn all necessary knowledge on work safety and accident prevention regulations as well as on the regulations of the insurer. The comprehensive knowledge on materials and products is deepened in the EDELRID laboratory using practical examples.
