Climbing with HighStep Easy always takes place in combination with an additional, independent fall protection - The HighStep Protector. The HighStep Protector is connected to the users safety harness on one side and embraces the HighStep Rail on the other. While the user climbs up or down as directed, the HighStep Protector runs freely along the rail in the same direction as the user. However, if the downward motion is too fast, i.e. in case of a fall, the spring force moves the double catch back into the Rail and prevents a free fall.
