VerticalX Vertical lifeline

Vertical X is a flexible lifeline suitable for protection against falls from heights to be installed on ladders and vertical walkways.

Thanks to the geometry of the end supports and the cable grommet, the passage of the shuttle is smooth and precise, guaranteeing an immediate stop at all times in the event of the operator accidentally falling.

Engagement and exit of the fall arrest shuttle can be performed at any point in the system.

The shuttle is equipped with an energy absorber according to EN 355 to limit the stopping force to 6 kN, is certified according to EN 353-1:2014+A1:2017 and is CE marked.

The system is mainly installed on existing ladders, but a wide range of standard and special brackets allows it to be applied directly on load-bearing structures.
