SOLL Vi-Go Vertical Cable System
A unique and versatile Solution for Vertical Access on existing ladders
The Vi-Go vertical cable system can be retrofitted to ladder’s rungs or side stringers, providing a comfortable non restricted climb with the benefit of fall arrest.
Unrivalled Fall Arrest
Due to its technological design and internal mechanisms, the fall arrester is extremely safe as it eliminates incorrect usage and due to its absorbing element reduces the fall impact on the user.
Safety for all Users
Each fall arrester is equipped with a shock absorbing element made of stainless steel which is unique to Söll. This highly effective, durable absorber reduces the impact force to a minimum on a worker‘s body in the event of a fall. The value falls considerably below 6 KN which is stipulated in the EN 353-1 standard.
How it works
The user wears a full body harness (EN 361 compliant) and fastens the karabiner hook of the Söll Vi-Go Shuttle to the fall protection/fall arrest attachment ring of a harness.
The unlock button is pressed with the thumb; the slider can then be opened using ﬁngers. The shuttle can be placed on the approved cable by lifting the latch slightly.
Users can start climbing or descending once the shuttle has been ﬁxed to the cable. The short distance between the harness and the shuttle is ergonomically positive and very safe.
Since each shuttle is equipped with a cushioning element as opposed to being on the cable, the loads on the cable ﬁxings are effectively reduced. After a fall the cable does not necessarily need to be replaced.
Söll Vi-Go is approved and certiﬁed according to the most important international standards. (EN 353-1, ANSI, AS/NZS 1891.3, & GB 6095-85/6096-85)
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.
