As approved installers, Rotrex OnSite is able to offer design and installation for all Latchways ManSafe products.
We also maintain, inspect, test and certify all makes of lifeline systems.
Key system checks include deployment of shock absorbers, swage tests and torque checks as part of this process
LadderLatch units provide workers with the security of being constantly attached to the system whilst also having both hands free for climbing.
Weightanka utilises a central attachment point which raises the point at which the arrest force is applied.
The WalkSafe system aids compliance with the Work at Height Regulations, CDM and Booklet HSG 33 ‘Health and Safety in Roof Work’.
Latchways ManSafe fall protection and access solutions are trusted around the world to ensure workers’ safety on buildings, towers, bridges and other structures.
Latchways Lifeline Systems – design and installation
This includes horizontal, vertical and overhead lifeline systems using Latchways Constant Force Post Technology or traditional Latchways stainless steel components. All of our engineers are trained at Latchways headquarters in Wiltshire and regularly attend refresher courses. Our experienced technical team can help with identifying your requirements by carrying out a site assessment. Additionally we are able to quote from tender documents for installation onto new or refurbished buildings.
Latchways – annual maintenance
It is a legislative requirement that fall protection solutions are tested and recertified annually by suitably qualified personnel. Key system checks include deployment of shock absorbers, swage tests and torque checks as part of this process. Upon completion of a satisfactory test an ID tag will be fitted stating the ID number, next test due date and the required system design details. Once recertification is complete a test certificate will be issued from our office. Our experienced technical team can help with identifying your requirements by carrying out a site assessment.
Fall restraint and fall arrest systems are completely different entities. In essence, a fall restraint system prevents workers from reaching a hazard, while a fall arrest system allows workers to reach a hazard and then protects them if they should fall.
A fall arrest system provides maximum freedom of movement for workers to conduct their duties. In doing so it allows them to reach the point where a fall could occur, such as the edge of a roof for gutter maintenance. However, in the event of a fall, the fall will be arrested and so allow the person to either effect a self rescue or be rescued.
These systems allow a person access to conduct their duties but prevent them from reaching a point where a fall could occur.
Restraint systems are generally suitable if the person needs to work at the edge of a hazard. For example, where there is a need to maintain gutters along the edge of a roof, or if there are other potential fall hazards such as a fragile roof, roof lights or air vents.
Latchways ManSafe for Ladders system provides outstanding personal safety for individuals working on any type of fixed ladder. Such is the simplicity of the design concept that the ManSafe for Ladders system can be installed to follow the contours of the structure and so maximise its safety value in a working environment. Equally, the proven effectiveness of the LadderLatch unit provides workers with the security of being constantly attached to the system whilst also having both hands free for climbing. If a worker should fall from the system, the LadderLatch immediately locks onto the system cable and arrests the fall.

- Can be installed for use in virtually all environments
- Can be integrated into a comprehensive system incorporating vertical, inclined and horizontal sections
- Rotates freely through the intermediate cable guides to give the user continuous hands-free protection
- In the event of a fall, the LadderLatch unit locks onto the cable and arrests the fall
- Energy absorbers built into the system protect the end anchors from excessive loads should a fall occur
- The unit can be attached or detached at any point in the system.
- Easy to install and maintain
- Comprehensive range of specialist components to enable installation on a wide variety of applications
- Meets all relevant international standards
A deadweight anchor device for use on roofs up to five degree pitch, where the absence of guardrails or permanent anchor devices would otherwise preclude safe means of access. Weightanka utilises a central attachment point which raises the point at which the arrest force is applied, thus reducing the distance the anchor device moves during a fall arrest event.
- Conforms to Class E EN 795, BS7883 and ISO 14567
- CE Approved to PPE Directive
- Galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461
- Does not penetrate the roof surface
- Base weights fully encased in rubber moulding
- Can be used on single-ply membrane, asphalt, concrete, mineral felt, steel cladding and stone chippings in wet or dry conditions
- For fall restraint, up to two workers may be attached providing they cannot get to less than 500mm from the edge
- Easy and quick to assemble
In conjunction with a ManSafe fall protection system, a designated walkway system can be specified.
Latchways WalkSafe walkway provides a level anti-slip surface, marking a designated route for workers to follow. WalkSafe can be fixed to all major roof types including standing-seam, composite, built-up on site, secret-fix and membrane and does not damage the integrity of the roof or compromise the guarantee.
The WalkSafe system aids compliance with the Work at Height Regulations, CDM and Booklet HSG 33 ‘Health and Safety in Roof Work’ which gives extensive guidance on how to work safely on roofs.
WalkSafe can provide a demarcation route which guides a worker’s movement in areas where there are potential fall hazards, whilst eliminating wear and tear on the roofing systems in heavily trafficked areas.Require a Lifeline System - contact us
