Fall Arrest Ladders for Safe Working at Height

Protect personnel accessing your roof space with specialist Access Ladders designed with high quality fall arrest tracks.

Adjustable to meet any height requirement, Heightsafe’s vertical access ladders comprise sections in modular form, meaning they are adaptable with little or no need for cranes or heavy lifting equipment – providing adequate fall arrest protection for users once installed.

  • Product Options

    Heightsafe design and manufacture safe, strong and top-quality systems to meet your access requirements

    • To prevent unauthorised access either a solid security panel, or a removable lower ladder section can be fitted directly to the base of the ladder
    • To protect workers at height, safety cages and rest platforms can be installed
  • Professional Safety Ladders

    Heightsafe have developed a fall arrest system for ladders that incorporates an enclosed safety track to eliminate the risk of a fall from height, providing extra protection for employees and contractors.

    This compact system is the perfect solution where hoop arrangements are not appropriate or safe, as when used with a slip grip traveller and a shock absorbing lanyard, the system locks into place, limiting a user’s fall. This PPE is included in all of Heightsafe’s quotations for Fall Arrest Ladders.

    Users can not only travel in a vertical direction when using this system as by utilising a turntable section, the user is also given the ability to move into an adjoining horizontal profile, without disconnecting. Speak to our specialists today for more information.
