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.

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.
