Permanent mansafe systems. Fall protection.

Fixed Ladder Fall Arrest Systems

Vertical cable-based fall arrest systems can be integrated with any fixed ladder to dramatically enhance the safety of workers climbing a variety of tall structures, from buildings to chimneys, silos to towers.

Designed to follow the profile and gradients of a fixed ladder, a STQ Vantage vertical safety line systems enable workers to move up and down the complete height of a structure without having to disconnect the harness and find a new tie-off point.

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.

Invisirung vertical track ladder system with folding step handles

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 with Folding Handles and Steps

These ladder track systems ensure users are safe at all times when ascending and descending ladders. Even in the event of a fall the user will remain safe and will not suffer the risks posed from falling through a hooped ladder, which can cause serious injuries, especially to the user's more vulnerable limbs (legs, arms, neck etc).

Bespoke Access Ladders and Steps

This client needed to gain regular and safe access to the upper roof area. To match their requirements we designed a bespoke, wide runged ladder to enable easy access.

This is a light-weight aluminium design with grab rails for user safety, and a landing platform. This will remain in condition whilst galvanised equivalents begin to degrade.
