  • Innovative Constant Force technology controls the load on the system in the event of a fall.
  • Reduce the number of costly 'T' bars and anchoring points with Constant Force technology's ability to span 60m
  • System tested to BS EN 795; certified by SATRA and conforms to BS EN 362:1992 and all applicable OSHA regulations.

Temporary Rope System

Wind Turbine fall protection for the construction phase.

MSA's Latchways Temporary Rope Systems provide fall protection during the construction phase of an onshore wind turbine. Single Point anchors are installed onto the wind turbine ladder at the point of manufacture and provide a top and bottom anchor onto which the temporary rope system is fitted.

  • Reusable - As soon as a permanent system, like the MSA Latchways vertical cable system, is installed,the temporary rope system can be removed and stored in its bag for future use or further construction stages.
