Lad-Saf X2 Detachable Cable SleeveCapital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, introduces the Lad-Saf™ X2 Detachable Cable Sleeve, the next generation cable sleeve designed to be used as part of the complete Lad-Saf™ Flexible Cable Ladder Safety System.

The Lad-Saf X2 Detachable Cable Sleeve offers hands-free climbing, automatically following the user during ascent or descent, and one-handed cable attachment or detachment for fast, easy and safe connections. Its lightweight stainless steel construction offers added durability and longevity to the sleeve.

The compact and more ergonomically refined Lad-Saf X2 sleeve has two independent means to activate its fall arrest function: a mechanical system that locks onto the cable almost immediately in the event of a fall; and a supplementary inertia system that activates locking independent of the mechanical system, providing a redundant safety system for added protection. In addition, the inertia system prevents unintentional upside-down installation. The Lad-Saf X2 sleeve also features an in-line shock absorber to reduce the forces a worker’s body will experience in a fall arrest event.  

“Jobs that require workers to climb ladders, poles, towers and tanks are not only physically demanding, but create safety risks at height,” said Joe Yeatman, systems and anchors product manager at Capital Safety. “We developed the Lad-Saf sleeve to provide a cable based fall protection option, and with the addition of the next generation Lad-Saf X2 sleeve, ladder system climbing has reached the next level in ease of use and safety.”

The Lad-Saf X2 sleeve meets all the requirements of the proposed new ANSI Z359.16 Standard for Climbing Ladder Fall Arrest Systems. All Capital Safety products adhere to current OSHA or ANSI industry standards.
