              VERTICAL ANCHORAGE LINE SYSTEM                                        Conforms : EN 353-2:2002

              System Ref: VERTEX PN 2001
              System Specifications

              Conforming to the Norm EN 353-2:2002 this vertical
              Fall Arrest system is an integrated solution to arrest
              the fall of a user who has to constantly climb up &
              down a ladder. It consists of a vertical anchorage line
              made of stainless steel wire rope, installed on a ladder
              using an appropriate mounting bracket at the top.
              A stainless steel Rope Grab moves up & down the
              anchorage  line,  accompanying  the  user  who  is
              connected to this rope grab with the help of a small
              shock absorbing lanyard.
              To maintain the tension in the wire rope, a dead weight
              is connected to the lower end. Also, an end clamp
              provided at the end of the wire rope is fitted to the
              ladder rung to maintain the anchorage line in position.
              Intermediates  are  provided  at  regular  intervals  to
              prevent  dislocation  of  the  anchorage  line  from  its
              mean position due to wind pressure or mechanical
              The system also has an Inspection Name Plate which
              is  installed  on  the  first  rung  of  the  ladder  for
              identification,    traceability  and  maintenance  of
              inspection records. One stainless steel cable is used
              to fasten the System Name Plate to the structure. At
              time of installation, the relevant details are punched
              on  the  plate  by  a  number  punch.  The  revalidation
              dates  are  punched  each  year  on  the  plates  after
              inspection and revalidation.
              Significant Features are:
              Ÿ It is simple and easy to install requiring minimum
                 effort for installation.
              Ÿ The Rope Grab comes with special anti-gravity
                 locking system which enables it to be fitted
                 always in the correct position.

              Extremity Plates for Two Ladder Rungs
              Extremity plate used to install a vertical anchor line
              made of SS wire Rope installed on a ladder with U-
              bolts  &  nylock  nuts.  Fixing  on  two  rungs  provides
              better structural strength to the system.
