DBI-SALA Powered Climb Assist SystemCapital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, announces two new safety products.

DBI-SALA® Powered Climb Assist System

The new DBI-SALA® Powered Climb Assist System, specifically developed to provide assistance for those who climb the internal ladders of wind towers.

The new system – which features a wire cable, wire cable grip and lanyard assembly, portable motor control unit, cable tensioning system, and top and bottom bracket assemblies – adjusts to environmental conditions and adapts to end-user movement to allow users to ascend and descend effortlessly. This personalized adjustment system suits a wide range of climbing styles and user weights, and can be easily transported to support multiple systems and wind towers.

“Wind turbines can be tiresome and time-consuming to climb, and when workers are worn-out, their safety and productivity is compromised,” said Chris Elder, engineered systems senior product manager at Capital Safety. “Our new Powered Climb Assist System by DBI-SALA provides weight-relief to workers, which reduces fatigue and improves climbing longevity. The system design enhances the total assist range with five force level settings, so workers can get the job done faster, easier and, ultimately, safer.”

The DBI-SALA® Powered Climb Assist System is a non-fall arrest rated system and is used in conjunction with an approved ladder safety system. Optional power cords are available to match appropriate receptacles to meet global compatibility.

Rollgliss™ Technical Rescue Product Line

Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, introduces the new Rollgliss™ Technical Rescue product line for use in industrial environments. The Rollgliss Technical Rescue range of products was designed to meet the needs of rescuers for rigging, encompassing everything from simple descent systems to complicated high lines. The entire Rollgliss family of rescue products is compatible with the existing line of industrial rescue systems, including pre-rigged rescue kits such as the Rollgliss R350, R500 and more.

The Rollgliss Technical Rescue product line is built to be durable and reliable, especially in harsh conditions, to ensure the safety and security of workers risking their lives during rescue operations. It offers various accessories, including descenders, rigging plates, anchor straps, carabiners, ropes, and pulleys. The Rollgliss Technical Rescue product line also includes ten RescueMate™ Haul Kit models with either manual or automatic locking/unlocking cams to provide a safe and efficient progress capture system during personnel rescue and positioning.

“When you risk your life to save the lives of others, you want to know that your rescue system won’t fail you,” said Emmett McGregor, global product manager at Capital Safety. “Workers can trust in the strength of the Rollgliss family of rescue products because they have been specially engineered to work harder and last longer.”
