Vertical Systems

Latchways ManSafe vertical systems are ideal for use on towers, masts, monopoles, lattice structures and silos. Mansafe is built for flexibility and enables a system to closely follow the contours of the vertical structure. Horizontal and inclined sections can be included where appropriate.

As with all Latchways’ products, components are made of quality materials to withstand the harshest environmental conditions. The system is safe for usage in all sorts of environmental conditions.

Equally, the proven effectiveness of the system’s LadderLatch unit with its unique Latchways starwheel component provides workers with the security of being constantly attached to the system while also having both hands free to go about their duties. If a worker should fall from the system, the LadderLatch unit immediately locks onto the system cable and arrests the fall.

In the event of a fall, a worker attached to a ManSafe for Ladders system is far less likely to be injured during the fall arrest process compared to a fall from a traditional hoop system. Whereas hoop systems prevent a worker falling backwards off a ladder, the hoops themselves present a significant threat if the worker should fall down a ladder.
