Column Climber CC13X Combo
Column Climber™ (CC13 for flanges to 1" - 1-7/8") 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 for initial connections; and also as a work platform. Column Climber can be freely used within fall protection guidelines, either with our accessory products, or with standard fall protection products.
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™ 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, increasing safety while at the same time increasing productivity. The need for costly aerial man lifts and even ladders is diminished because Column Climber™ can be used in many instances where formerly there was no other option.
Column Climber's high-strength 514 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).
Adjustable, super hard, HHA military-spec armor plate steel nosing allows for quick adjustment to accommodate varying flange thicknesses.
Column Climber™ focuses on direct, personal steel worker fall prevention, rather than simply fall protection, believing that it is preferable to never fall than to be protected after the fact.
Both the strap/buckle assembly and nosings are designed for easy replacement in case of wear or damage.
Column Claw™ (CCW1) is our patent pending lightweight steel-alloy, rapid-adjust, sliding anchor point specifically designed for use with Column Climber™ to create mobile fall protection which meets 100 percent tie-off requirements, yet still allows vertical mobility while ascending and descending columns.
Column Claw rapidly adjusts and clamps to column flanges up to 14" wide and 1-7/8" thick and stays in place, but 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.
T Lanyard (TL11 chain) is specifically designed as a positioning lanyard for use with our front-flange mounted Column Claw.
Column Climber has been reviewed by OSHA and can be used in accordance with current fall protection standards. Column Climber can be used as an access/positioning device AND as a personal work platform. Please see our use guidelines for more information: http://column-climber.com/guidelines-specs/
