The Arresta-Rail

Designed to prevent falls from existing fixed ladders.



About the Arresta-Rail System

The Arresta-Rail is a fully tested Vertical System that is CE marked in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 795: 1997 and the codes of practice intended to complement it.

The Arresta-rail safety system arrests falls when climbing or descending vertical or near vertical industrial ladders and other similar access ways.


The standard requires that the imposed load, under dynamic testing, is below 6kN and that the system can sustain a 15kN static load without ultimate failure.

Customer should satisfy themselves that the ladders or structure to which the system is fixed can itself withstand the imposed dynamic load as a minimum requirement.

Testing service available if required.
