Proprietary Systems & Anchors
Fall protection system for any user attached to this system. Particularly adapted to all vertical access for inspections, repairs, maintenance. Ladsaf can be mounted on all kind of structures (wood, steel, concrete, chimney, antennas, allowing one (1) or more persons (up to 4) to go up and down on those structures in perfect safety.
Sliding Wire Rope Grab provides connection between climber and wire rope. The rope grab can safely traverse intermediate brackets. Its opening system with double security allows user to connect and disconnect anywhere on the line; without any risk. Depending upon the design (See Installation), Ladsaf can accommodate up to four users at any one time.
Top bracket incorporates Elastomer Impact Attenuator. This ensures maximum force on the body in the event of a fall does not exceed 6kN, in accordance with European standards.
Legislation and Standards
Ladsaf system conforms to EN 353-2 and is marked CE. It must be installed according to manufacturer instructions.
For normal system operation, ladders should be positioned at least 15° from the vertical. The system may be attached to ladder rungs in a variety of ways:
- With U-bolts
- Bolted directly through the stringer
- Through-bolted (for wood poles)
- Clamped to the tower framework
Ensure the climbing structure to which Ladsaf is to be installed is capable of supporting the loads imposed by the system. The required bracket load may be assumed to be distributed evenly between the number of rung attachments.
Wire Rope Grab
Incorporated shock-absorbing lanyard standards:
- Guided type fall arrester - EN 353-1/2
- Karabiner - EN 362
- Energy absorber
- Annual inspection mandatory
Servicing / Maintenace
No specific maintaince outside standard mandatory inspections.
Visually check cable and grab for corrosion before and during each initial ascent.
Average lifespan: 10 years
Full check and servicing by manufacturer of the system (including cable grab) required:
- Annual (six months if in maritime /corrosive environment or if used intensively)
- After any fall
Ensure the climbing structure to which Ladsaf is to be installed is capable of supporting the loads imposed by the system. The required bracket load may be assumed to be distributed evenly between the number of rungs to which it is attached.
Bottom bracket connection must be capable of supporting a system pretension load of 3.3kN (340Kg) in the direction of loading.
Top bracket load requirements vary depending upon the number of users allowed on the system at any one time, the top bracket model and the type of connection.
Top bracket load requirements per no. of users
1 person 15.0kN
2 persons 19.1kN
3 persons 24.0kN
4 persons 28.0kN
Max Number of Persons
People must keep a sufficient safety distance between them in order to avoid any collection in case of fall.
