V-TEC™ Self-Retracting Lifeline
With premium stainless steel components and innovative engineering, the V-TEC Self Retracting Lifeline incorporates a precision-made spring radial energy absorber that requires zero calibration or adjustment. The retraction dampening feature controls cable retraction speeds preventing pre-mature and accidental load indicator deployment.
MSA offers several types of reliable restraint lanyards, which are primarily used for travel restriction and work positioning.
V-TEC™ Personal Fall Limiter
The V-TEC PFL Retractable Lanyard is the most compact & lightweight self-retracting lanyard ever developed in its class using multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology. This new design eliminates the need for an external energy-absorber outside of the housing making it the smallest retractable lanyard in its class on the market.
Latchways Sealed Self-Retracting Lanyards
The Latchways Sealed Self-Retracting Lifeline range offers a dependable means of fall protection and has been specifically designed for use in harsh environments such as oil rigs, wind turbines and other offshore applications.
The Anthron Descender is a manually operated, controlled descent device most commonly used for suspended work positioning, self-evacuation, or rescue operations. A cam assembly provides friction on the rope to hold a load or allow the load to descend at a controlled rate. The system consists of a 7/16" (11mm) rope, the Anthron Descender, and two carabiners. Proper roping and rigging diagrams are on the side of the device, which can be installed or removed at any point on the rope and has a working load of 300 pounds (136 kg).
Freestanding Constant Force® Post
MSA's Latchways® Freestanding Constant Force post provides assured worker safety at height where there is an occasional or temporary requirement to access flat roofs or structures.
Gravity® Suspension Harnesses
The Gravity Suspension harness provides unparalleled comfort for all applications that require extended periods of time in a fall protection harness. The features and benefits of this new family of harnesses from MSA are designed to reduce fatigue and allow users to perform their duties better and in more comfort. Models are designed for very easy donning, one hand adjustment at all adjusters, and modern styling.
Latchways Standard Self-Retracting Lanyards
The Latchways Standard Self-Retracting Lanyard range offers a dependable means of fall protection and has been specifically designed for use in a number of different environments enabling an unhindered hands-free fall protection solution. Utilizing modern engineering and innovative design, they are the most advanced self-retracting lanyards on the market.
Latchways WinGrip® Vacuum Anchor
The Latchways WinGrip is a vacuum anchor fall protection system for use in aircraft manufacturing and maintenance, as well as a variety of other environments and industrial applications. WinGrip is safe and flexible, it can be used on the fuselage, stabilisers and wings; the system is quick to install, simple to use and is suitable for work inside the hangar and outside on the apron.
Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems
The MSA range of Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems provide a permanent fall protection for maintenance works in all industrial environments. The setup of Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems is fit for purpose and tested not only according but also beyond various global standards and legislations. Multiple components offer a wide range of corners, intermediate wire guides and brackets to overcome critical situations on-site. A number of different energy absorbers allows to reduce load into the user and structure in the event of a fall. The patented starwheel technology Transfasteners® allow the system users to walk freely along the entire lifeline system.
Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems for HV Power Transformers
The MSA range of Latchways® Horizontal Lifeline Systems for HV Power Transformers provide a permanent fall protection during routine maintenance or emergency works performed at the top of the transformer. A built-in energy absorber allows to reduce the load into the structure with a minimum cable deflection in the event of a fall. The patented starwheel technology Transfastener® allows the system users to walk freely along the entire lifeline system.
Latchways® Inclined Lifeline Systems
The MSA range of Latchways Inclined Lifeline Systems provide permanent fall protection for maintenance works on structures that slope. These lifelines are assessed by Notified Bodies to be fit for purpose in inclinations between 10° and 90°. Workers climbing on environments such as suspension bridges, conveyors, telecom antennas on roofs or other inclined structures can be secured and walk freely along the entire lifeline system. The guided type fall arresters lock-on immediately if the system user would either fall or slip.
Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems
MSA's range of Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems provide outstanding personal safety for individuals accessing areas requiring the use of a fixed ladder in a wide range of applications. This range of lifelines has the inherent flexibility to be configured for any ladder, regardless of type, shape or size.
Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems for Wind Turbines
MSA's range of Latchways® Ladder Lifeline Systems for Wind Turbines provide outstanding personal safety for individuals accessing the nacelle by the means of climbing a fixed ladder.
Latchways® Overhead Lifeline Systems
Missing structural elements are often critical in environments such as warehouses, loading bays, factories, maintenance bays or airplane hangars. MSA's Latchways® Overhead Lifeline Systems help to overcome this challenge by allowing free span-distances up to 60 m (197 ft) and accessibility for up to 10 users depending on the case.
Latchways® Roof Light Covers
Falls through fragile surfaces are one of the biggest causes of accident when it comes to working at height. Rooflights when flush or inplane can be difficult to differentiate from the roof surface. The MSA Latcwhays Roof Light Covers are a simple solution to provide protection to workers when there is presence of fragile surfaces. This Skylight protection is simply installed over the fall hazard creating a certified protective surface incase of an individual or an object falling.
Latchways® Sealed Self-Retracting Lanyards for Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations
The Latchways® Sealed Self-Retracting Lanyards (SRL) for Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations offer reliable fall protection to workers transferring to and climbing offshore wind turbine foundation ladders. Designed to work in the harshest conditions, the Sealed SRL has undergone extensive, independently verified testing to ensure consistent, reliable long-term performance.
Latchways® Single Point Anchors
The MSA Latchways® Single Point Anchor range provides permanently fixed and removable anchor devices to which a worker can confidently and safely attach a connecting device. The MSA Latchways Single Point Anchors can be used in a wide variety of environments and applications, such as construction, general industry, power generation or transmission, wind energy, etc.
A fall restraint lanyard connection is used between the anchor point and the body harness to prevent the user from reaching the fall area and work positioning applications. MSA restraint lanyards are available in web and kernmantel rope.
