 SOLL GlideLoc Ladder 

A Discrete and Safe Solution for Vertical Access 
 
GlideLoc Fall Protection ladders provide a safe and controlled means of vertical access whilst working at height. 
The system is made up of a centrally mounted GlideLoc rail with rungs fixed directly to it making a solid ladder, the ladder is fixed back to the structure via our specially made brackets. 
 
The GlideLoc system is used throughout the world in industries such as Utilities, Telecommunications, Construction, Steeplejacks, Wind Energy and Building Maintenance. GlideLoc offers employers, designers and users a safe, aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective alternative to traditional hooped ladders. Our systems can be adapted to suit any situation fixing to steel, brickwork or even through cladding. 
 
System conforms to BS EN 353-1 - 2014 

 How it works 

The GlideLoc Rail uses a shock absorbing travelling device called the “Body Control I” it runs along the track and provides the link between the user’s harness and the system. In the event of a fall the traveller physically locks onto the track preventing further decent and minimising injury. 
 
As the locking of the Traveller does not rely on friction, as is the case with some rail and cable systems, the user is given complete confidence and wear of the track is minimal. 
 
In most instances the user can self-rescue simply by releasing the traveller with a slight upward pull as the user climbs. 

 The Systems comes in 2 different designs:  

 
GlideLoc Yspar Ladder 
The fall protection GuideRail forms a unique central spine to which the rungs are welded, to form a solid ladder. This ladder is best suited to an industrial environment and is available in Galvanised, Aluminium and Stainless Steel. 
 
GlideLoc Twin Ladder 
More like a conventional ladder twin has a central rail, with rungs welded with fixed side stinger/stiles. The side rails (stingers) offer additional support to the user when climbing and descending. Available in Galvanised, Aluminium and Stainless Steel. 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 GlideLoc Top Extension 

This allows the user to be stood on the top rung of the ladder while still being connected to the fall arrest rail. This also includes an EN 795 tested eyebolt allow the user continuous connection. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Rotary Top Exit Section 

This works similarly to the 1m top extension allowing the user to stand on the top rung. The top 350mm of the Rotary Top Exit Section rotates 180° with the user as they step on to the roof top. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Twisted Change-over Rail 

Like the 1m top extension but instead of extending vertically the fall arrest rail bends on to the roof top. As the user steps on to the roof his traveller follows the Guide Rail, resulting in continuous connection until the user is a safe distance away from the fall risk. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Ho-Vert Turntable 

This allows the user to be continuously connected while stepping from one ladder across a platform to the next ladder. The user climbs to the top of the first ladder and positions the Traveller into the turntable and turns it 90°, then steps on to the platform and the traveller follows him gliding alone the horizontal rail. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Shaft Entry Device 

Ideal for those who have shafts and manholes. This allows the user to connect to the fall arrest system before climbing down into the shaft. This can also be used for exiting through a roof hatch. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

GlideLoc systems are used in conjunction with the following travellers:  

Söll Vertical Body Control I Fall Arrester
