VRS - vertical rail system

Checkmate's Vertical Rail System is a simple-to-install safety solution for all ladder and vertical access situations.

The highly-reputed VRS has been used on the likes of the One World Trade Centre to provide safety to maintenance engineers. The lightweight trolley has a gravity and dynamic brake with easy glide-action for snag-free movement. The extruded alloy rail is designed with a 'T' slot in the back to assist installation, reducing the accuracy required for the position of anchorage points. The use of slipping joints allows for the connection of dissimilar metals, and eliminates the issues of thermal expansion.
