Vertical Ladder Rigid Track Lifeline Systems

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.


New development: removable SPEED ATTACH runner

Designed to be attached and removed from any point on a C profile rail system, the new SPEED ATTACH surpasses all previous models and still features the usual safety measure of two redundant retention systems.

This prevents the occurrence of operating errors or accidental opening of the runner when in use.

The advantages of our SPEED runners at a glance:

  • Dual redundant safety system
  • Low wear due to high-quality stainless steel rollers
  • Certified for both chest and climbing protection eyelet use: No danger of misuse due to incorrect anchoring.
  • A fall indicator on the energy absorber indicates to the user when the runner needs to be taken out of service.
  • Thanks to the modular design of the unit, it is easy to recondition after the energy absorber has been triggered and to replace rollers in the event of wear.
  • Many safety-relevant features, such as simultaneously operated elements for opening the SPEED ATTACH to reduce accidental misuse to a minimum.
