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.
