The BTS VertiClimber is a fixed wire rope vertical climbing lifeline system

that provides 100% Fall Protection from the Ground Up. Using an easily operated detachable sliding type 1 fall arrester, the user can slide up and down the entire system which consists of stainless steel swage-less components.

The type 1 fall arrester is designed to grab and lock against the 8mm wire rope the instant a fall begins and reduce the distance of fall to less than 300mm. Once the karabiner is installed, the type 1 fall arrester cannot be unintentionally removed from the cable. The type 1 fall arrester has a built-in mechanism preventing it from operating in the upside down position

BTS Vertical Safety Climb Cable System is designed to provide fall protection while climbing or descending a variety of ladders or vertical structures. Applications include telecommunication towers, light poles, water towers, hydro electro towers, stacks or any other climbable structure that requires permanently placed climbing protection.
