3M offers the new Lad-Saf X3 Detachable Cable Sleeve with carabiner and dual-independent locking system, which fits a solid core cable. The Lad-Saf X3 3/8″ (9.5mm) Detachable Cable Sleeve is part of a permanently installed ladder safety system. It is designed to work with many different styles and lengths of ladders on structures, such as wind turbines or communication towers.
Lad-Saf’s flexible system consists of a top and bottom bracket that act as anchors for a steel cable that runs the length of the climbing area. A Lad-Saf X3 sleeve connects the worker to the system that automatically follows the user during the climb and locks onto the cable in the event of a fall. This safety mechanism lets the worker regain his or her footing.
Optional brackets and designs are available for bolting or welding the system. In fact, hundreds of different brackets, styles and configurations are available to suit almost any application. There are choices of rung clamp sizes and styles, and different systems for straight or curved ladders, and for connection to wood, concrete, or steel structures.
The system can also be used by up to four workers simultaneously for added jobsite flexibility. An informational video on the Lad-Saf X3 Detachable Cable Sleeve can be viewed here.
