The SELS Ladder Arrest Height Access System - A fall protection concept for the highest safety requirements
The SLAS Safe Climbing system includes fall protection ladders, guide rails, and guided type fall arresters. System accessories such as entry and exit devices, roof ascent or shaft entry equipment make it possible to design a system that is not only appropriate for the structure of the building or installation, but which also satisfies the very highest safety requirements.

A reliable fall arrest solution
Vertical Guide RailsThe EN 353 compliant guide rails can be assembled on existing ladders, step irons etc.
Horizontal Guide Rails
The EN 795 compliant anchorage devices are based on guide rails and are designed to provide a safe working environment for people working at height such as on roofs. The worker wears a full body harness and uses a lanyard (or other connector compliant with EN 354/ EN 355) to connect to the eye of
the shuttle, which travels along the rail. For overhead applications a retractable fall arrester can be used to provide the most effective means of protection.
Horizontal Guide Rails can be fixed on the ground, to walls or even overhead - fixing span of 1m (40 in.).
Available in lengths of up to 4m (13 ft.) in straight or curved form and made of aluminium, galvanised steel or stainless steel. Suitable for up to 3 persons at a time and can allow continuous transfer to vertical guide rails using a turntable.
The permanent safe climbing system
Ladder Arrest systems are available as ladders as well as guide rails.
Fall protection ladders have an integrated guide rail for the guided-type fall arrester as the centre stile. They are available in aluminium, galvanized steel and stainless steel, either with or without side stringers:
- Anodized Aluminium: For high corrosion and distortion resistance, good appearance and ergonomic support.
- Hot dipped galvanised steel: The cost effective solution for general applications.
- Stainless steel: Suitable for harsh environments such as chemical plants, food industry, off-shore and industrial chimneys and shafts.
|The Y-Spar Ladder
The so-called Y-spar is a cost-effective option. The low surface area keeps wind and snow loads transmitted on to the sub-structure to a minimum.
|The Twin Ladder
The operator can glide his hands along the side rails when ascending without having to hold onto the rungs. Ideal for dirty environments. Söll Twin Ladders offer high distortion resistance.
Technology & Expertise from Professionals for Professionals
The heart of the system is the guided type fall arrester
The user wears a safety harness before climbing onto the system.
The fall arrester, also known as a fall arrest shuttle, is attached to the front of the harness using the incorporated karabiner.
In the event of a fall...
...the fall arrester prevents free falling by self-locking in the rail and stopping the fall within a few centimetres, offering complete safety at whatever position or height. According to EN 353, part 1, the arresting force on the user must not exceed 6 kN (1350 lbs.).
Fall arrest forces of SLAS fall arresters are less than 4 kN (900 lbs.).
Meets all global safety standards
The fall arrester is inserted into the guide rail. When climbing or descending, the fall arrester glides smoothly in the guide rail. The ergonomically shaped full body harness provides stability to the user.
SELS Ladder Arrest fall arresters are some of the safest and most innovative products in the market.
The patented new COMFORT fall arrester provides the connection between the full body harness worn by the worker and the guide rail. This combination ensures complete safety during descent and ascent, with or without leaning back. The stainless steel catch locks onto the rail in the event of a fall.
Operates with and without leaning back.
Other fall arrest systems require the User to lean backwards, to allow the device to unlock and slide. This is difficult in confined spaces and the User has to move the device manually. This can be dangerous and discourages use of the system. With the COMFORT fall arrester, leaning back is not necessary and the device will travel smoothly in all applications.
|COMFORT||COMFORT 2||UNIVERSAL II||COMFORT UK|
The integral karabiner is double self-locking and is made from light-weight aluminium. It ensures extremely short arrest distances and low arrest forces of only 3.7 kN (832 lbs.).
Made entirely of stainless steel. The functional design of COMFORT 2 is identical to the aluminium shuttle and offers additional advantages since it is designed for severest stresses, is extremely durable and easy to clean.
Can be inserted into or detached from the rail at any location. The body and the opening mechanism of the patented fall arrester are made from stainless steel.
With double self-locking karabiner and strap webbing for rescue actions which require the cutting free of the injured person.
Permanent Ladder Safety System Examples
|Wind Turbine - With galvanised steel ladder||Chimney - With retro-fitted guide rail||Telecom-station - With aluminium ladder on the Zuspitze||Floodlight mast - For stadium lighting with galvanised steel ladder|
SELS Ladder Arrest is a fall protection system, permanently installed on buildings, towers, masts, etc... comprising a guided type fall arrester, which glides up and down a steel or aluminium notched guide rail. The rails can be retro-fitted to existing ladders, or alternatively are incorporated in a complete safe climbing system. A wide range of mounting brackets are available for fixing to most structures.
Permanent Fall Protection Ladder System
The law requires protection against falling from height.
Building owners and managers must provide safe systems of work!
Why put a fall protection system in place?
Falls from height are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death at work. Analysis of all industrial accidents usually highlights inappropriate working conditions as a principal factor. In the case of work at height the consequences are immediate and serious, resulting in major disability or death. Approximately one in seven work place fatalities are due to a fall from height. Just look at the statistics below!
What the Law says!
According to the European directive 89-686, the employer or company responsible must put fall protection measures in place for the persons working at height. The employeer should try to minimise the risk through design or engineering controls and provide measures to prevents falls. If this is not feasible then other protective measures should be considered, such as personal fall protection equipment and systems.
The major causes of injury in the workplace.
- 2% - Electricity.
- 3% - Various Appliances.
- 3% - Manual Handling.
- 4% - Mechanical Handling.
- 5% - Moving Objects.
- 12% - Workplace Violence.
- 30% - Falls from Height.
- 41% - Vehicles.
We can provide a safety solution for every application.
Which system is the correct one?
Various systems are available in the market and they differ in their design and application significantly. Safety features, functions, handling and ease of use, should all be evaluated. Additionally; durability, maintenance costs and long term value should be assesed in order to select the best system. In all cases, fall protection systems should be designed for each specific application. This will minimise the risk of a fall from height and maximise the effeciency of the work being carried out.
