WE INTRODUCED THE PROFESSIONAL LADDER SYSTEMS IN WIND TURBINES
When using built-in vertical ladders inside wind turbines, the sense of safety becomes more palpable than anywhere else. The necessary feeling of safety that should be a matter of course can only be guaranteed with a first-class, rugged ladder system. Over 50 years ago, Hailo developed the aluminium ladder in Europe, introducing the professional ladder system to wind turbines. As a result of this pioneering achievement, Hailo Wind Systems was founded and developed into today’s global market and technology leader for safe and reliable climbing technology.
With many innovative ideas such as the patented double-beaded rungs, special grip profile, autonomously deicing rungs, or side rails with led lights, our ladder and fall arrest systems comfortably outperform the global competition. Whether individual vertical ladders in a variety of versions, materials, and sizes, with fall arrest rails or ropes incl. the accompanying fall arrest devices, rest platforms, climb assists, to guide service lifts, CCVs (Cold Climate Version), in accordance with or with tailored accessories such as ladder holders, side-rail brackets, or nacelle ladders: Our internationally certified ladder solutions stand for reliability, quality, and safety.
Ladder systems with fall arrest systems
We offer rail and rope-guided fall arrest system solutions, with decades of proven reliability in practice, for optimal safety in wind turbines. The ladder system is fitted with a guide rail or safety rope and the necessary attachment points. Naturally, we also offer you the prefabricated complete system solution or kits for pre-installation, as well as certified rope and rail-guided accompanying fall arrest devices, including fixed guidance.
Our climb arrest system solutions stand for optimal safety, reliability, and quality. All solutions comply with the PPE Directive (EU) 2016/425, are internationally certified (e.g. in accordance with EN 353-1:2014), and suitable for use as fall arrest protection systems on fixed ladders. All parallel-running fall arrest devices, with years of proven reliable operation in practice, are additionally fitted with integrated shock absorbers to minimise catch-impact forces.
