This allows the user to safely access or exit the hatch by attaching to the fall arrest anchor (self-retracting lifeline) on top of the telescoping post. The telescoping single point anchor extends 30”.|
|Cable Trolley (Included with system) – The trolley is designed to follow the user along the lifeline while ascending or descending and instantly lock in the event of a fall. Integrated with stainless steel shock-absorbing element that includes an impact indicator so that user can confirm system is safe prior to use.|
|Nano-Lok 6 ft. (1.8m) Self-Retracting Lifeline/Device (Class A & B) (CSS-3101228) – [OPTIONAL]
[REQUIRED FOR THIS SYSTEM IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE ONE]
Nano-Lok™ self-retracting lifelines are ergonomically designed for ease of use and is ideal for direct connection to most harnesses. The extremely compact and lightweight design is virtually unnoticeable on your back, staying out of the worker’s way and making it ideal as a lanyard replacement. Buy Individually →Usage: When a user ascends the ladder, the user is tied-off to the cable system via the trolley system. Once the user reaches the top of the ladder, and is ready to exit the roof hatch, the user ties off to the already connected SRL device at the top anchor point of the extension pole. Once connected to this device, the user can now disconnect from the cable system trolley, to climb out off the roof hatch.
|Full Body Harness w/ Front D-Ring (Universal Size) (CSS-1102010) – [OPTIONAL] Designed to meet the durability, all-day comfort and safety requirements while working at heights on a construction site, use heavy-duty webbing that is almost twice as strong as the standards require. The Ladder Fall Arrest System requires the user to tie-off to the front d-ring of the harness. The harness distributes the load of the fall on the users body. Buy Individually →|
