Ladder Systems — Hands-free, personal safety for fixed industrial ladder applications, including chimneys, towers, cranes, and silos. MSA Latchways ladder systems are unobtrusive and lightweight, and stand up in the snow, ice, or other adverse weather conditions.

Falling down a ladder is not the same as falling backward off of a ladder. While traditional hoop systems may prevent a worker from falling backward off of a ladder, the hoops themselves present a significant threat should a worker fall down a ladder. A worker attached to an MSA Latchways ladder system is far less likely to be injured during the fall arrest process compared to a fall from a traditional hoop system.
