Gravity personal protection and safety products

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The use of fall protection systems requires appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be specifically selected for use with each individual system. Gravity Solutions Limited offer PPE, with each system that we install, with all items conforming to European legislative requirements as a minimum. Items of PPE are supplied with comprehensive instructions.

Fall Protection systems generally require the use of some or all of the following items:

  • Full body harness
  • Transfastener
  • Shock absorbing lanyard
  • Retractable lanyard
  • Safety rope and grab unit
  • Connector

In addition to the end user examining PPE prior to use it is a requirement that all items of PPE are examined by a competent person on an annual basis.

Gravity Solutions Limited also offer a range of rescue equipment.


A crucial element of most Latchways fall arrest systems is the unique Latchway's Transfastener, which is covered by international patents.

The Transfastener's starwheel design allows continuous movement along the cable based system and eliminates the need for people using the system to detach and reattach to the system when changing direction or passing intermediate anchors and deviations.

The Transfastener may be used from both sides of the system and moves along horizontal systems, around corners and up and down inclines. Product variations enable the same convenience and safety for ladder, tower and overhead systems.

The Latchways Transfastener is made from 316S and 17/4 PH stainless steel to ensure strength and prevent corrosion.
