Red Wing, Minn.-based Capital Safety has launched a pair of safety tools aimed to increase the safety of technicians working at height.

Developed to provide assistance to those who climb tower ladders inside wind turbines, the company's DBI-SALA Powered Climb Assist System provides weight relief to workers, reducing fatigue and improving climbing longevity.

The system - which features a wire cable, wire cable grip and lanyard assembly, portable motor control unit, cable tensioning system, and top and bottom bracket assemblies - adjusts to environmental conditions and adapts to end-user movement to allow users to ascend and descend. This adjustment system suits a wide range of climbing styles and user weights and can be transported to support multiple systems and wind towers.

The company also rolled out a product to aid the descent of wind technicians. The Rollgliss Technical Rescue product line is built to be durable and reliable, especially in harsh conditions, to ensure the safety and security of workers risking their lives during rescue operations. The product line also includes 10 RescueMate Haul Kit models with either manual or automatic locking/unlocking cams to provide a safe and efficient progress capture system during personnel rescue and positioning, notes Capital Safety.
