Safety and Self Rescue System for IDC Warehousing
Complete safety system for vertical access ladders fitted to warehouse beam or rail cranes. Unit allows full access and egress to the ladder and racking system to maintenance personnel.
The Preventor – Descender unit is fitted with 30m (ADUL-30) or 16m (ADUL-16) cable set. The system allows free movement up and down the ladder but in the event of a fall the unit will lock off within less than 20 cm and immediately switches to a fully automatic descender. Descent speed is approx 0.8 metres per second.
Using this set up allows safe climbing and self rescue from the ladder. If an incident were to occur the worker could be left hanging awaiting a rescue and possible effects of suspension trauma. Using the automatic unit prevents suspension trauma and the need for warehouse staff to organise what could be a complicated rescue.
