The SKYTAC climbing protection system allows you to climb safely up or down to any height or depth on installed vertical ladders. The guide rail with a C profile is made from 3mm wide galvanized steel and the rungs have an extra zinc layer for better protection against corrosion. To enhance the safety of users of the climbing protection system, SKYLOTEC has developed the SPEED, the only runner in the world with two redundant brake systems and a catch function that works according to speed.
The principle behind SPEED is simple: the lock system is hidden in the housing and is therefore protected against unwanted access. An additional lever means that SPEED works like a pull-back runner. The runner is short and so, therefore, is the fall distance. This makes it easier to climb and also reduces injuries caused during falls. In the event of a failure of the pull-back system, whether through misuse or unfortunate circumstances, the runner can only reach a maximum pre-set speed. If this speed is exceeded, the second safety catch independently kicks in: a centrifugal brake swings the lock system out and the runner is blocked. A high number of catch in the TAC rail allow a very short fall distance. This significantly reduces the risk of injury in the event of a possible fall.
