EDGE Fall Protection’s Fixed Ladder Fall Arrest System is a galvanized steel vertical ladder fall protection safety system, designed to protect workers wearing personal fall protection equipment from falls when climbing fixed ladders. This 2-user ladder climbing safety system includes the top and bottom brackets, pre-swaged 3/8 inch 1 x 7 galvanized steel cable, and one guide.
EDGE’s Ladder Fall Arrest System
Durable Secure Lifeline Design
Two mounting brackets, one at the top of the ladder and one at the bottom of the ladder, secure a vertical lifeline to the fixed ladder. These mounting brackets fit a variety of fixed ladder styles which may have different rung spacings and different rung shapes.
A durable, 3/8 inch 1 x 7 high-strength galvanized steel cable is stretched between the top and bottom brackets to create a secure lifeline. For additional stability to the lifeline, a cable guide attaches to the middle rung. There is 100% tie-off capability with an integrated fall arrest anchor point on the top bracket, rated to 3,600 lbs.
Permanent installation of this ladder fall protection system is easy with included mounting hardware and robust cable tensioning and termination.
Worker’s Safety and Security
A worker attaches a compatible cable sleeve to the ladder lifeline and connects it to a lanyard or self-retracting lifeline (SRL). The sleeve moves with the worker which allows for mobility up and down the entire height of the ladder while climbing and locks in place should a fall occur. It eliminates the need to disconnect and find new tie-off points along the way. This ladder fall protection system allows two users to safely climb the entire length of the ladder and safely transition to the top of the ladder. The weight capacity is 620 lbs.
