The patented starwheel technology Transfasteners® allow the system users to walk freely along the entire lifeline system.
The MSA range of Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems for HV Power Transformers provide a permanent fall protection during routine maintenance or emergency works performed at the top of the transformer. A built-in energy absorber allows to reduce the load into the structure with a minimum cable deflection in the event of a fall. The patented starwheel technology Transfastener® allows the system users to walk freely along the entire lifeline system.
The MSA range of Latchways Inclined Lifeline Systems provide permanent fall protection for maintenance works on structures that slope. These lifelines are assessed by Notified Bodies to be fit for purpose in inclinations between 10° and 90°. Workers climbing on environments such as suspension bridges, conveyors, telecom antennas on roofs or other inclined structures can be secured and walk freely along the entire lifeline system. The guided type fall arresters lock-on immediately if the system user would either fall or slip.
MSA's range of Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems provide outstanding personal safety for individuals accessing areas requiring the use of a fixed ladder in a wide range of applications. This range of lifelines has the inherent flexibility to be configured for any ladder, regardless of type, shape or size.
MSA's range of Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems for Wind Turbines provide outstanding personal safety for individuals accessing the nacelle by the means of climbing a fixed ladder.
Missing structural elements are often critical in environments such as warehouses, loading bays, factories, maintenance bays or airplane hangars. MSA's Latchways® Overhead Lifeline Systems help to overcome this challenge by allowing free span-distances up to 60 m (197 ft) and accessibility for up to 10 users depending on the case.
Falls through fragile surfaces are one of the biggest causes of accident when it comes to working at height. Rooflights when flush or inplane can be difficult to differentiate from the roof surface. The MSA Latcwhays Roof Light Covers are a simple solution to provide protection to workers when there is presence of fragile surfaces. This Skylight protection is simply installed over the fall hazard creating a certified protective surface incase of an individual or an object falling.
The Latchways® Sealed Self-Retracting Lanyards (SRL) for Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations offer reliable fall protection to workers transferring to and climbing offshore wind turbine foundation ladders. Designed to work in the harshest conditions, the Sealed SRL has undergone extensive, independently verified testing to ensure consistent, reliable long-term performance.
The MSA Latchways® Single Point Anchor range provides permanently fixed and removable anchor devices to which a worker can confidently and safely attach a connecting device. The MSA Latchways Single Point Anchors can be used in a wide variety of environments and applications, such as construction, general industry, power generation or transmission, wind energy, etc.
The MSA range of Latchways® VersiRail guardrails provide a temporary or permanent fall protection system for leading edges. MSA guardrail systems are customizable for added versatility and provide passive fall protection for the user, incorporating the durability and reliability needed to get the job done and are aesthetically pleasing for any building type.
The MSA range of Latchways® Walksafe is a leading roof walkway system that has been trusted for decades in roof access strategies. Roof walkways provide a delineated access route that restricts the worker to safe zones when working at height. Walkways provide traction for user to prevent slips and trip, but also work to protect the roof surface from foot traffic.
