19 Sep URGENT: Product Safety Notice from DBI-SALA / Capital Safety
LADDER SAFETY SYSTEMS USING 3/8 INCH 7X19 STRAND GALVANIZED CABLE
Capital Safety today issued the following Product Safety Notice:
This Notice concerns the DBI-SALA Lad-Saf™ Flexible Cable Ladder Safety System, also known as a ‘Safety Climb System.’ Capital Safety has received a limited number of reports of 7×19 strand carrier cable slippage from the carrier clamp in the top bracket of these ladder safety systems. Although this top bracket design has been used in the market for more than 40 years without incident, the reported slippage raises the potential for injury to users of affected systems.
Based on our analysis of component manufacture dates, the affected systems are:
- systems using 3/8 inch 7×19 strand galvanized cable, with
- top bracket assemblies (including carrier clamps) purchased from Capital Safety between September 1, 2013, and May, 13, 2014
