Vertical Rail System

A simple to install safety solution for all your ladder and vertical access situations. The lightweight trolley has gravity and dynamic brake with easy glide action for snag-free movement. The extruded alloy rail is designed with a ‘T’ slot in the back to assist installation, reducing the accuracy required for anchorage positions. The use of slipping joints allows for connection to dissimilar metals allowing for thermal expansion.
