Vertical Fall Arrest Systems
Vertical Fall Arrest Systems ensure that users remain safe whilst climbing. It is important that the user can ascend and descend comfortably and safely, which is why the Lad-Saf™ system has been so popular over the years.
It has been available for over 30 years and is the biggest selling vertical fall arrest system. It has been installed in all continents across the globe and it is this experience which has led to the development of one fully certified system, including the shuttle that is now the new standard Lad-Saf® system.
The new Lad-Saf™ sleeve has been designed to meet all applicable safety standards around the world, in conjunction with other Lad-Saf® components, creating a universally approved vertical fall arrest system. This means that the Lad-Saf™ system can be used the world over and there is no requirement for different components in each region around the globe.
The whole system is certified to EN 353-1:2002, ANSI-ASC A14.3-2008 and CSA-Z259.2.1-98 (R2004).
The Lad-Saf™ system allows up to 4 users on the system at any one time and enables them to connect and disconnect at any point of the lifeline.
The design also allows the shuttle to remain attached to the user to eliminate the potential for dropping and creating Lost Time Incidents or causing potential injury.
Alongside the new shuttle the new Lad-Saf™ system has extra options, including 8mm (5/16”) cable which is easier to handle in confined environments
There are new top bracket assemblies for the range of 8mm cables too. New internal components are used within the head assembly to ensure optimal performance and safety. Housed inside are the elastometric attenuator (shock absorbing element) and the strand vice, specific for the cable diameter used.
