June 27, 2014 – Capital Safety has introduced the Lad-Saf X2 detachable cable sleeve, a cable sleeve designed to be used as part of the complete Lad-Saf flexible cable ladder safety system.
The Lad-Saf X2 offers hands-free climbing, automatically following the user during ascent or descent, and one-handed cable attachment or detachment for fast, easy and safe connections, says the company. Its lightweight stainless steel construction promises added durability and longevity to the sleeve, while an in-line shock absorber reduces the forces a worker’s body will experience in a fall arrest event, says Capital Safety. There are two independent means to activate the unit’s fall arrest function: a mechanical system that locks onto the cable, and a supplementary inertia system.
