Vertical Anchorage Line System on Rigid Aluminium Rail
Ref : VERTEX PN 9000
This is a complete Fall protection Ladder System which consists of Hot dipped galvanized Steel Ladder Rungs over which is fixed the Vertical Anchorage Rail made of Aluminium Alloy. This system is an ideal choice for use where there are no pre-fabricated ladders or climbing structures available for climbing and can be fitted over various structures using different types of fasteners.
The system conforms to EN 353-1:2014
The Rungs of the Ladder, made of Galvanized Steel, are fitted at a suitable distance from the underlying structure/profile to allow enough foot space. The rungs also have a grooved surface that allows a slip-free grip while climbing.
The Aluminium Anchorage Rail fitted on to the center of the Rungs of the ladder is smooth and allows the Guided type Fall-Arrest Trolley to glide effortlessly over its length. This trolley moves up and down accompanying the user who is connected to it with the help of an Auto-locking Karabiner.
The Trolley is made of Stainless Steel and has wheels made of Brass, making the system highly corrosion resistant and extremely smooth in working.
In the event of a fall, the trolley immediately locks over the Rail, thus arresting the fall. Also, while not in use, the Unidirectional locking system of the Trolley does not allow it to fall freely down the Rail. The system comes with an Extension Arm that curves at the Ladder-end over the working platform. This allows the climbers to be connected with the trolley even at the Ladder termination, ensuring complete safety.
The bottom most section is the Aluminium Rail Extremity which is equipped at the end with a lock that prevents the trolley from moving out of the rail.
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.
This system can be used on telecommunications towers, radio and TV masts, power supply and hydroelectric installations, wind power facilities, construction, chimney and industrial plants, buildings and facades, crane installations, shafts and manholes, aircraft hangars and for loading/ unloading of trains and vehicles, petrochemical plants, on-shore and off-shore oil rigs, ship-building.
