One of the major advantages of a Latchways ManSafe system in a heritage environment is its discreet appearance. The inherent flexibility of the system means that it can be installed to be as unobtrusive as possible while still meeting the appropriate safety requirements. ManSafe systems can be designed to operate horizontally, up and down inclines and vertically to follow the often complex contours of a heritage building or structure.

Latchways installers are trained to give special consideration to the aesthetic requirements of the environment. Equally, they will work in close co-operation with traditional craftsmen, such as lead workers, to ensure that the installation process does not compromise the structural integrity of the building.

ManSafe systems have been specified on historic and heritage buildings around the world. In the UK they are installed on St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Portsmouth Royal Naval Dockyard and Canterbury Cathedral. Common applications include ManSafe horizontal systems for both internal and external access to roofs and parapets.
