HDG = Hot Dipped Galvanized
Some poles need special solutions to enable ongoing access for maintenance. Projects may be unsuitable for our Mid-Hinged Poles. Or where poles are installed in remote locations which may be inaccessible to cherry pickers and elevated work platforms, it may be difficult to maintain the light fittings, communications or other equipment.
Safety Climb System
In these cases we recommend the use of a Safety Climb System. This system incorporates the use of either fixed or removable climbing rungs strategically spaced along the pole and an adjustable safety steel wire lanyard system. The system allows the climber to secure themselves with a safety harness to a secure steel cable that runs the length of the pole and is fastened at the top of the pole, the base of the pole and along the length of the pole with rubber securing cleats. These cleats allow for the cable to be temporarily removed from the cleat while the latch way is slid past the cleat and the cable is then re-secured.
All the appropriate brackets and attachments are manufactured and / or attached to the pole during its manufacturing process and are hot dipped galvanized with the pole. If required, the system can also be supplied complete with safety harnesses and a latch way mechanism for the operator to use when climbing up the pole.
Our Safety Climb Systems are usually supplied with our poles, however they can be supplied separately as an adjustable clamp on system for an existing pole. Care must be taken to assess the structural suitability of the existing pole to carry the additional sail loading of the Safety Climb System.
Our Safety Climb Systems are supplied hot dipped galvanized and can be painted or powder coated to match our poles. Complete Safety Climb Systems can be viewed and tested on erected poles set up for demonstration purposes at our Osborne Park premises.
