Product / Hercule Horizontal Fall Arrest
Horizontal fall arrest/goods carrying enclosed track system, tested to the requirements of EN795.
Overhead Fall Arrest
Hercule caters for low ground clearance applications where conventional fall arrest solutions are not suitable, making it ideal for installation in industrial environments, warehouses, loading bays and vehicle/aircraft maintenance workshops.
The enclosed track system eliminates excessive build-up of debris from collecting on the main running track while the lightweight trolley with sealed bearings allows the operative to move completely "hands free" throughout the system. This means that if the operative falls the trolley will be immediately above them, so preventing the pendulum effect which is often a problem with conventional horizontal life line systems.
Hercule’s flexible design means that it is able to cope with bends and changes in height within the run of the system. The system can also be installed as a double track and trolley device with a further single track running in between to accommodate all required positions, making it particularly suitable for lorry and aircraft maintenance.

Rise in working at height safety breaches
Working at height continues to be a concern on construction sites with latest figures showing a rise in safety breaches and fatalities.
Suspended sentence for repeated safety breaches
Roofer had already been served with two prohibition notices on two separate occasions for working at height with no suitable edge protection.
