Capital Safety Introduces Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder

Press release date: June 10, 2008

RED WING, Minn. - June 10, 2008 - DBI-SALA, a Capital Safety brand, introduces the Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder, which provides a means of assisted rescue after a fall has occurred where standard fall protection equipment is in use. The Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder can be anchored to a structure and dropped down to the victim's level so that he or she can climb up or down to safety.

"It is essential to have a rescue plan in place," states Charley Bryant, product marketing manager for hardgoods with Capital Safety. "The Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder meets timely rescue requirements by providing immediate response and aid to the fall victim in most environments, including confined spaces. The Rescue Ladder is especially important to have when professional rescue personnel like a fire department or professional rescue company are not readily available."

The Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder is easy to climb with rungs that are reinforced with plastic and steps that are staggered instead of straight across. The lightweight synthetic material makes the 3.8-pound ladder easy to transport to the rescue area. It is ideal for use on construction sites where falls over edges are a common hazard, and by utility workers who use specialized equipment to access confined spaces.

The Rollgliss® Rescue Ladder is available in eight-foot sections; extra sections can be added to lengthen the ladder for specific site requirements. The Rescue Ladder comes complete with three connecting carabiners that can be anchored to a structure or other anchorage connectors, including web tie-off adapters, cable tie-off adapters and fixed beam anchors. The Rescue Ladder can also be mounted to a davit arm with an accessory plate to provide a stable ladder for access into confined spaces. Once finished, the ladder can be disconnected and stored for reuse.
