Next to a new extension of the Forth and Clyde Canal stand two 30-meter high horse-head sculptures called The Kelpies. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.
People often come to admire the sculptures but not many consider the difficult height access issues presented by their design, particularly reaching the sculptures lighting.
Working with Eurosafe Solutions, Safety At Height have provided a safe and comfortable access solution integrating the PivotLoc and GlideLoc Yspar ladders.
Both systems have a rigid central fall arrest rail, which when used with the Söll comfort traveller offers a secure confident climb at any height.
In the event of a fall the comfort traveller will lock in position, the internal shock absorber will be activated and will reduce the load on the user and the structure.
As the fall distance for the user is reduced self rescue is possible.
