Vertex PN 2001

Vertical Anchorage Line System on Flexible Steel Cable Line
Ref : VERTEX PN 2001

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 movement.
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:

  • It is simple and easy to install requiring minimum effort for installation.
  • The Rope Grab comes with special anti-gravity locking system which enables it to be fitted always in the correct position.
