"One of the best innovations I've ever seen come around in 34 years in the steel business."
The ultimate combo for vertical mobility, while maintaining 100% tie-off and +/- 2-0 foot fall arrest at all times. The CC0X Combo includes our our patent pending Column Claw™ and T-Lanyard.
Column Climber™ patented design gives the steel worker unmatched mobility, as an access device, and unparalleled convenience as a personal work platform, at every work point.
Column Climber™ allows a steel worker to securely and comfortably stand upright and work with two hands free, positioning themselves correctly and safely to connect, bolt-up, or weld, or inspect, increasing safety while at the same time increasing productivity.
Column Claw™ is our patent pending lightweight steel alloy, rapid-adjust, sliding anchor point specifically designed for use with Column Climber™ to create personal mobile fall protection which meets 100 percent tie-off requirements, yet still allows vertical mobility while ascending, descending and working on column connections.
Column Claw rapidly adjusts and 'clamps' to column flanges up to 14" wide and 1-7/8" thick with its super fast slide-lock collar, yet still effortlessly 'slides' with its user as they ascend or descend a column. Clamping, loosening, and adjustment are done quickly with one hand and require no wrenches, pins, etc..
When used in conjunction with Column Climber and our T-Lanyard positioning lanyard, Column Claw's fall-activated, self-locking fall protection mechanism will positively engage the column in the event of a user fall and arrest the fall in +/- 2-0 feet.
The need for costly aerial manlifts, ladders, and other positioning devices is diminished or eliminated because Column Climber™ can be used in many instances where formerly there was no other option.
Column Climber™ is a simple-to-use device that allows a worker to safely and effortlessly climb up, climb down, and work right from a steel column at the connection point. Column Climber is classified as both an access device, used to ascend and descend, and also as a 'work platform'. Column Climber comes in 2 models: CC02 for flanges to 7/8" or CC13 for flanges from 1"-1-7/8".
Column Climber can be freely used within fall protection guidelines, either with our accessory products, or with standard fall protection products.
Column Climber™ allows a steel worker to securely and comfortably stand upright and work with two hands free, positioning himself correctly and safely to connect, bolt-up, or weld, or inspect, increasing safety while at the same time increasing productivity. When used with our exclusive Column Claw and T-Lanyard products, a worker can achieve unrestricted vertical mobility, 100% tie-off, and +/- 2-0 foot fall arrest.
Column Climber's high-strength 514 alloy steel footframe (design engineered to support over 700 pounds per foot) supports the entire length of your foot eliminating any leg or foot fatigue during regular or extended use. Slip-resistant EVA worksoles permit sure-footed movement over typical jobsite surfaces like decking and concrete.
Its wrap-around heel bar and high-temp, cut-resistant straps with quick-connect buckles allow you to securely step-in and step-out in seconds. The inclined jaw design allows Column Climber’s vise-like lock-and-release action to function intuitively with your body’s natural stepping-climbing motion making ascending or descending a column as natural and easy as climbing stairs.
Column Climber's grip is not impaired by mud, dirt, grease, oil, water, ice, or even asphaltic coating on the steel. The leverage force applied by each foot is so intense that it cannot be dislodged by a sledgehammer blow (based on factory testing).
A rapid-adjust, 6-position, super hard, HHA armor plate steel nosing allows for quick adjustment to accommodate varying flange thicknesses.
