About new build fall protection

We work closely with architects, specifiers and contractors to provide the very best technical advice and help ensure your new build project remains compliant at every stage.

We offer PPE – including harnesses, lanyards and personal fall limiters – that can be used during construction as well as fully compliant height safety systems for ongoing building maintenance.

Our highly competent project managers and technicians are experts at following architectural plans. We will resource all necessary fall protection system components and complete installations according to requirements. We can also provide BIM models for integration into your specifications.

If fall protection is a late addition to a new build project, we will assess the structure – utilising our technical knowledge and practical understanding of worker safety – to propose the ideal height safety solution for your needs.?Click here to download MSA Latchways BIM models.

That’s the perfect time to contact us. We have extensive experience working with older buildings and challenging retrofits.
