NSC 2018 Product Showcase
The 2018 National Safety Congress & Expo, the largest U.S. annual

The new Patent Pending SafeAirLADDER™ is designed to help prevent confined space accidents, and monitor and report environmental conditions inside a confined space. The ladder utilizes a gas metering sensor mounted to the base of the ladder, inserted into a confined space. The top of the ladder mounts onto the manway and has an integrated alarm console, which remains outside of the space. This system is intended to act as a secondary safeguard to reduce the potential for accidents and alert management of attempts to enter a space without metering the atmosphere first.
