MSA Latchways WinGrip Single Anchor Systems
The WinGrip Single-Anchor System serves as the basis for all the MSA Latchways WinGrip Systems. It consists of a vacuum module, one or more WinGrip anchors, an adjustable safety line and a safety harness.
When used in accordance with the WinGrip working method for which training is supplied, the system creates a safe environment for one person working on wings, fuselage or stabilisers. The WinGrip Single-Anchor System can also be used in a variety of other environments and for various other industrial applications. It is quick and easy to install, portable, and suitable for the performance of both short-duration and prolonged maintenance work.
MSA Latchways WinGrip Multi user Life-line Systems
Just like the WinGrip Single-Anchor System, the WinGrip Multi-User Lifeline Systems make use of the WinGrip vacuum anchor module.
Several WinGrip vacuum anchors positioned in a line and combined with the WinGrip Multi-User cable system can be used to create a safe working environment for up to four people.
The WinGrip shuttle allows workers to travel the entire length of the MSA Latchways WinGrip Multi-User Lifeline System (10 to 36 metres).
MSA Latchways Wingrip All In One
A vacuum module integrated into the anchor is what makes the WinGrip AIO a stand-out system. It means the WinGrip AIO is light and portable and – used in conjunction with the WinGrip AIO nitrogen cylinder – also very flexible for both indoor and outdoor use.
A full WinGrip AIO nitrogen cylinder provides users with six hours of safe working conditions. An additional WinGrip Anchor can be connected in order to create a safe ‘triangle position’.
As it comes in its own WinGrip AIO Transport Case, the WinGrip AIO is ideal for carrying out on-site servicing.
MSA Latchways WinGrip Barrier Systems
The WinGrip Barrier System was designed to protect those working at height over prolonged periods of maintenance. The uprights of the WinGrip Barrier Systems are centrally positioned in the WinGrip vacuum anchor. The horizontal components can then be mounted.
The design of the WinGrip Barrier System means that there is no need for workers to wear safety lines and/or harnesses when within the safe zone. There is also no maximum to the number of people who can use it. WinGrip training (mandatory for all other WinGrip Systems) is not required for users of the WinGrip Barrier System (but is required for installers).
