FrenchCreek's rigid rail climbing systems provide maximum climbing safety for workers in a multitude of applications, such as: towers, antennas, chimneys, stacks, scaffolds, support poles, wind generators, signs, water tanks, dams, silos, shipboard, ladders, and virtually any place that climbing must be done! The rail attaches quickly and easily to any ladder, step iron, or climbing surface. The trolley moves freely along the rail until a slip or fall occurs, when the trolley instantly locks, and the fall is immediately arrested.
The removable extension is used to access a permanent rail system/ladder from the top, when a permanent extension is not possible or desirable. The extension is positioned into the existing permanent rail with a machined high-strength alignment bar and support channel, as shown. Extensions can be manufactured to specific customer requirements.
All FCP flexible cable climbing systems come with a top bracket, bottom bracket with tensioner, rung clamps for up to 1-1/8" diameter rungs, 3/8" galvanized wire rope lifeline permanently terminated at one end and clips on the other end, with standard lengths varying from 20' to 300', and an appropriate amount of cable guides based upon length. Full body harness and cable grab sold separately. Mounting hardware is available for other applications besides fixed ladders. Please contact FCP for more information. We will be glad to configure a custom system to meet your specific job application.
FCP's Ladder Lock System is constructed of heavy-gauge, rust proof aluminum. The braces and hardware are made of galvanized heavy gauge steel. Installation is easy (no welding or cutting), just bolt the hardware in place, and secure for a no maintenance, permanent installation that will prevent the ladder from unauthorized use. Dimensions: 8' high x 36" wide x 1/8" thick.
