Vertical Ladder Systems
Permanent Vertical Safety Systems
Permanent Ladder Systems offer a simple and economical
solution where permanent fall protection is required.
They are designed to provide fall protection when climbing
or descending ladders or vertical structures. They consist of
either galvanised or stainless steel wire rope terminated to an
The operator utilises the rope grab, a light weight detachable
stainless steel fall arrest device complete with shock absorber
which allows hands free operation. A locking bar prevents the
device from being positioned upside down. The device with the
integral shock absorber is connected to a harness with ladder
The wire cable slides through the U shaped body of the device,
with a small nylon wheel facilitating the running. Should a fall
occur the device locks on the cable, stopping the fall with the
shock absorber greatly reducing the chance of injury. Simple
and strong, the device is easy to visually inspect for any web
damage, oxidation or deformation prior to use.
Flexible Cable System
system is designed to provide maximum personal
fall protection whilst ascending or descending a ladder. The
system can be made to suit permanent ladders of any length.
When used in conjunction with the Lad-Saf
sleeve, this will
limit a fall by an operator to a maximum of 600mm.
Old-style fall protection solutions such as ladder cages
are a poor solution by contrast - they tend to cause more
injury to a worker and will not arrest a fall. In addition, they
are considerably more expensive to install, and rescue
from a ladder cage is very difficult.
How It Works:
A 10mm galvanised steel cable is secured along the length
of the ladder with a termination bracket at the bottom and a
shock absorber at the top. An adjustable spanner is then used
to tighten the wire to the correct operating tension using a shear
washer - no torque wrenches are required. The Lad-Saf
is then attached to the cable using two deliberate actions. The
operator is protected once they attach the Lad-Saf
their full body harness with a frontal fall arrest D-ring, using a
To avoid deterioration from exposure to the elements or theft,
sleeve should be detached at the completion of
every use. Each Lad-Saf
sleeve can be used by a
single operator, and up to 4 operators can use a
To prevent vibration and wind noise, Intermediate
cable guides are adhered at 8m intervals
along the ladder.
In an application such as a standard
25m ladder, installation can be
completed in less than 2 hours.
Söll Ladder System
The Söll fall protection system utilised GuideLoc
which is a guided type 1 fall arrestor used in conjunction with
fixed ladder elements of the Söll system. Available in a variety
of configurations and materials, the unique glider travels
smoothly up and down the rails in the centre stile with minimal
The comfort guide type 1 fall arrestor runs smoothly
through the guide rail to enable smooth ascents and descents
on the ladder system. The guide attaches the users full body
harness by a locking karabiner, enabling the operator to travel
freely up and down the ladder system.
In the event of a fall, the fall arrestor prevents a free fall by self-
locking in the guide rail. This offers the user protection in every
position and at any height.
Ladder System Features:
• Söll guide rails can be combined with horizontal routes,
which enable the user to move vertically or horizontally
without having to detach from the system.
• The ladder system is available in, aluminium,
hot galvanised steel and stainless steel.
• Manufactured to handle the toughest environmental
• Accessories such as entry and exit devices, roof
ascents or shaft entry equipment available.
