How Ladder Vertical Fall-Arrest Cable Systems Work
To arrest a fall the system is used in conjunction with a guided type fall arrester. The fall arrester travels along the anchorage line, and accompanies the user without requiring manual adjustment during upward or downward changes of position and locks automatically on the anchorage line when a fall occurs.
By removing the limitations and inherent danger of traditional ladder loop protection during a fall, a permanent safety system for fall arrest on ladders will increase worker safety, climbing mobility and productivity.
Differences between hooped ladders and personal fall-arrest cable ladder systems explained here.
Fixed Safety Ladder Installations:
This ladder fall arrest lanyard and track system enables users to safely climb the ladder. A fall would be arrested immediately.
Safe access to and from the roof edge has been developed by this guardrail and ladder fall arrest system.
Vertical ladder fall arrest systems enable continous safe access to high level roofs.
The above 3 photos show the completed installation of a vertical track fall arrest system. The handles and steps fold against the ladder rail providing a subtle roof access sytem.
Securely fixed to the wall, this roof access system is compliant to BS EN795 and will effectively arrest the fall of an operative.
The system is simple to use, and requires a full body harness and a travelling fall arrest anchor which follows the user up and down the track, keeping the operative safe at all times.
Vertical Fall-Arrest Ladder Cable Systems
These fall arrest ladder safety devices are attached to the users harness, providing continuous fall arrest protection.
Attaching a fall arrest cable system to an existing ladder wihtout suitable safety is excellent way of meeting working at height requirements.
A Quick & Easy Ladder Safety System Installation To An Existing Ladder
A permanent fall-arrest safety system can be quickly fitted to an existing ladder, without the need to replace what has already been fitted.
This fall-arrest cable system is fitted to the rungs and extends between the top and bottom rungs. The user simply attaches a travelling anchor to the cable which runs smoothly up and down the cable without restriction.
Hoops provide an element of protection although do not provide total safety and cannot guarantee the user's fall will be arrested.
Wrap-Around Ladder Lock Out Panels
Preventing unauthorised roof access is important when protecting PV panels and plant equipment, especially in easy access or public areas. This lock-out panel was fitted and simply locked with a padlock, providing our customer peace-of-mind that their assets were protected.

Vertical Fall-Arrest Ladder with Folding Steps
These ladder track systems ensure users are safe at all times. In the event of a fall the user will remain safe and will not suffer the injuries posed from falling through a hooped ladder; hooped ladderes can cause serious injuries, especially to the user's more vulnerable limbs (legs, arms, neck etc).
The operator pulls down the folding handles and steps as they ascend the ladder.
