Overhead Systems

Maximum accessibility & hands-free mobility to safely go about your duties.

  • Change direction with ease
  • Innovative Constant Force technology controls the load on the system in the event of a fall.
  • Reduce the number of costly 'T' bars and anchoring points with Constant Force technology's ability to span 60m
  • System tested to BS EN 795; certified by SATRA and conforms to BS EN 362:1992

Ladder Systems

Hands-free, personal safety for fixed industrial ladder applications, including chimneys, towers, cranes, and silos. MSA Latchways ladder systems are unobtrusive and lightweight, and stand up in snow, ice, or other adverse weather conditions.

Falling down a ladder is not the same as falling backwards off of a ladder. While traditional hoop systems may prevent a worker from falling backwards off of a ladder, the hoops themselves present a significant thread should a worker fall down a ladder. A worker attached to a MSA Latchways ladder system is far less likely to be injured during the fall arrest process compared to a fall from a traditional hoop system.
