Fixed Access Ladders

A fixed access ladder with fall arrest protection is a safety system designed to prevent falls and provide fall arrest capabilities for workers using fixed ladders to access elevated areas. It combines a fixed access ladder structure with additional safety features such as vertical cable-based fall arrest systems.

Fall Arrest Systems

The fall arrest system typically consists of a guided type of fall arrester that travels along an anchorage line attached to the ladder. This fall arrester automatically locks onto the line in the event of a fall, preventing the worker from falling further and minimising the risk of injury.

By integrating fall arrest protection into a fixed access ladder, this system eliminates the limitations and inherent dangers of traditional ladder loop protection during a fall. It enhances worker safety, climbing mobility, and productivity by providing a continuous safety solution while ascending or descending the ladder.

Fixed access ladders with fall arrest protection are commonly used in various industries and applications where workers need to access elevated structures such as buildings, towers, chimneys, or silos. They comply with safety regulations and standards to ensure the highest level of protection for workers at height.
