Ladder Safety Systems 

Designed for installation on fixed, permanent ladders of virtually any height, Gemtor ladder climber’s safety systems feature a safety sleeve that automatically follows the ascending and descending movements of a worker along a fixed ladder. If a slip or fall occurs, a locking mechanism engages, limiting the fall to a few inches and reducing the possibility of serious injury. 


Gemtor ladder systems Include:


  • Full-body harness
• 100' of stainless steel cable (other lengths available, 30' minimum)
• Most installations can be completed by maintenance personnel in less than one hour.
6000 Series
The 6000 Series features a removable safety sleeve, so that a worker can take the sleeve with him from site to site. The 6000 Series is an economical solution for situations with many ladders in use. Workers need only one sleeve per user, and can hook up to any Gemtor 6000 Series system.
