Fall Protection Systems
Barton’s vertical, horizontal and overhead cable fall protection systems can be designed to follow the often complex contours found on rigs, pipe racks, flare stacks, derrick ladders and gantries and have proven reliability in even the harshest climatic and environmental conditions.
The quality materials used in the componentry of Bartons’ products are proven durable and reliable in even the worst climatic and environmental conditions, both onshore and offshore.
Case Study: The Judy Platform
Barton’s design department was delighted to bring to its client EnerMech Ltd a bespoke, reliable and innovative solution regarding safe access to the flare deck of the Judy platform.
Working in harsh conditions at sea, our team of highly trained technicians installed 60 metres of Latchways BridgeLatch fall protection systems to the handrails of the flare deck access stairs. Equipped with a BridgeLach travelling device, our client’s maintenance engineers were able to walk up to the deck safely and unhindered. The BridgeLatch unit rotates freely through the intermediate cable guides to give the user continuous hands-free protection. In the event of a fall, the BridgeLatch unit locks onto the cable and arrests the fall. It can be used on an incline of up to 70°. All Latchways components are independently tested and are now ATEX rated for use in explosive environments.
