Fall protection- Don’t fall for it

Sperian Protection says it can now, through its flagship Miller by Sperian brand, provide a complete fall-protection solution for the construction industry – from products through to training and equipment inspection.

It singles out its Söll Vi-Go system – a cable-based vertical-arrest safety system built on the company’s successful rail-based technology, Söll Glide-Loc, which is said to render vertical arrests of up to 200m safe. The system’s energy absorber is integrated into the fall-arrester, rather than the cable’s fixed supports, and is said to be quick to react in the event of a fall. Sperian adds that the Vi-Go bracket keeps the impact force levels in the event of a fall far below 6 KN.

Miller by Sperian now offers tailor-made safety at height training courses, which, it says, are taught by experienced instructors. The courses can be taken at its training centres, or on clients’ premises. The company also recently launched an automatic inspection-date reminder system through its dedicated fall-protection site For further product information click on the link below:
