The Latchways Mansafe for Ladders System provides outstanding personal safety for individuals working on any type of fixed industrial ladder. They can be configured for use on virtually any type of structure; applications include chimneys, towers, cranes, and silos. The systems are built around Latchways’ innovative starwheel component, which offers workers hands-free security–and its Constant Force energy absorber, a revolutionary technology that guarantees unrivaled protection for personnel working at height. The system’s universal attachment device rotates freely through intermediate cable guides for continuous, hands-free protection. In the event of a fall, the LadderLatch unit locks onto the cable to arrest the fall. At the same time, a fluorescent red indicator is exposed to indicate that a fall has occurred. In the event of a fall, the load on the worker is limited to a maximum of 6 kN by either a constant force absorber on the cable or a webbing energy absorber on the device. A webbing strap is incorporated into the system’s attachment device to facilitate rescue. LadderLatch systems are regarded as part of the tower structure and inspected accordingly. As an additional safeguard, Latchways require a 1% sample to be fully inspected annually.
