IBC Solar and Preising present the Aerofix Latch fall protection system. It is directly connected to the module array.

Working safely on flat roofs
The system can protect up to three people at the same time.

In combination with suitable personal fall protection equipment, the system allows good freedom of movement over the entire solar plant. Thus, it is possible to enter the area at risk of falling without extra and time-consuming hooking and unhooking. Irrespective of the arrangement of the solar modules, the protection equipment can be used on module arrays with at least 20 connected solar modules.

The system can withstand a fall weight of three people. The Aerofix Latch fall protection system can only be used in combination with the IBC Aerofix mounting system and is sold and installed exclusively by IBC and its authorised specialist partners, who also provide training for the installation of the fall protection system. According to IBC, existing installations can be retrofitted at any time. The Aerofix Latch has a European-wide approval and will be first introduced in Switzerland, followed by Norway and Sweden.
