Discover our range of innovative and bespoke abseil and facade access solutions that provide uninterrupted hands-free access.
An abseil and facade access height safety solution is great for projects with very clear ongoing maintenance and repair requirements. This includes;
Defined: The form of fall protection which involves the safe stopping of a person already falling, i.e. to arrest the fall".
PBI is proud to supply and install a diverse range of innovative personal fall arrest systems which allow significant freedom for work to be completed at height.
Remaining connected at all times forms part of our vision; "to make safety an instinctive culture".
That is why we are delighted to offer a wide range of access solutions designed to keep users safe while accessing height or moving to a location to carry out work.
Ladder, guardrails, walkways and vertical fall-arrest systems all form part of a comprehensive PBI Height Safety Solution.
Anchors often form a vital part of a complete fall protection solution (i.e. pendulum anchors), or sometimes they are their own solution.
Anchors are usually installed and used to connect lanyards and other forms of tie-off to provide fall-restraint or fall-arrest.
PBI is proud to supply and install a diverse range of surface mounted or structurally fixed abseil and fall-arrest anchor points that can be used across a wide-range of roof profiles and surfaces.
Cable Systems (often referred too as "static lines" or "horizontal lifelines") are a extremely useful fall protection option to provide a users with continuous hands-free connection.
Consisting of wire cable secured by a series of end-termination, intermediate and corner anchor posts, cable systems can allow multiple users to connect using a harness, lanyard and shuttle. As a result, cable systems are ideal for large areas like warehouse and rooftop roofs.
With roof, surface or structurally mounted options, cable systems are is extremely flexible and can be used as part of a wider height safety solution.
Depending on your project, davit and needle systems can for an important part of your height safety solution.
From a working at height perspective, a davit system is a portable lightweight anchor device that can be used in fall-arrest scenarios, abseil and for rescue either after a fall or for an emergency escape from a dangerous situations. With removable arms poles are arm, davit system bases can be covered when not in use for aesthetic purposes.
Needle systems protrude over the facade of a building or edge of a structure providing a secure anchorage for abseiling or for a rescue situation. Often connected to a rail system, needles can be moved along a surface to provide uses flexibility.
Rail systems are arguably one of most flexible and useful fall protection systems. With a range of abseil and fall-arrest application, rail systems often offer flexible installation options that include surface mounted, side-mounted and overhead.
Most rail systems allow multiple users making them extremely productive and efficient when completing work. They are also extremely useful in rescue situations.
A key benefit in the rail vs cable system decision is that rail systems often have even load distribution which ensures that even if one user falls, the integrity of the system will not be compromised.
PBI is proud to supply and install industry-leading vertical fall protection systems that keep users safe while accessing heights.
Whether you're working above or below ground, going up to a different level often involves the risk of falling.
Vertical systems allows users to connect to a safety system prior to leaving their level (i.e. the ground) and ascending to a different level/height.
Our innovative solutions are compatible with most ladders and other height access solutions ensuring retro-fitting is an option.
Our fall protection solutions do not just stop at systems. For a solution to be truly comprehensive, understanding requirements and having the right personal protective equipment is crucial. That is why we work with ZERO® Height Safety to bring you globally-leading and innovative height safety and general construction personal protection equipment.
