Horizontal fall protection is indispensable for working safely on roofs and other horizontal surfaces. For some years now, as a lifting and hoisting specialist, we have also specialised in fall protection, a field that is closely linked to lifting and hoisting. This enables us to provide you with excellent advice on horizontal fall protection systems, such as cable systems and anchor points. Discover the possibilities and contact our safety experts directly!
A lifeline with cable is the safest and most commonly used horizontal fall protection system. In this system, the user is connected to a cable that runs across the work area. The cable can be mounted on the roof, on a wall or above the user's head. The user is secured parallel to the hazard edge and can easily move across the work area because the fall arrest device moves smoothly over the cable. Another possibility is the installation of individual anchor points. However, this is a less versatile system than the cable system, and is therefore mainly used in smaller work areas. Van Gool supplies reliable, low-maintenance and inexpensive cable systems and anchor points from the Spanish brand Igena. This brand has been a leader in fall protection for years, and has developed reliable systems that are easy to assemble yourself. In addition, we supply separate components and personal protective equipment such as safety harnesses and helmets.
At Van Gool, the safety of you and your people is very important to us. This is why we attach such great importance to fall protection and only supply products in our range that meet the highest standards. Igena systems for horizontal fall protection, for example, are made of high-grade steel and meet the applicable NEN-EN 795:2012 safety standards for fall protection. In addition, we also inspect and certify safety products ourselves. If you wish, we can also inspect your horizontal fall protection system for you.
