HighStep modular climbing solution

Monday, 25 July, 2016 | Supplied by: Ferno Australia


The Swiss-engineered HighStep is a modular climbing solution designed for challenging height-access applications.

The system comprises a simple-to-install, low-maintenance rail system which is paired with climbing devices to facilitate mechanical and automated climbing. Mechanical climbing is achieved with HighStep Easy, a climbing device similar to a pair of shoe pedals, and HighStep’s fall arrestor, Protector. Automated climbing is achieved with HighStep Lift — a portable, battery-powered elevator.

The system is designed to be safe with three points of continuous contact at all time, reducing risk of falls and mishaps without compromising climbing speed.

It is also designed to be ergonomically friendly and efficient to climb. Climbing on the HighStep Easy uses similar movements to climbing stairs with the height of each step determined by the user. Rests can be taken at any point whenever the user feels fatigued — the need for rest platforms becomes redundant.

The system is simple to install with minimal engineering required compared with other climbing systems.

Suitable for a wide range of applications, some examples include: electricity pylons and power plant, telecommunications and broadcasting towers, tower cranes, mobile and overhead cranes, wind turbines and confined space/underground access — shafts and tunnels.
