Vi-Go Vertical Cable System

Jul 21, 2020 Posts

The unique & versatile system Söll Vi-Go is a fall protection system used in OEM or retrofitted onto existing climbing devices. The Vi-Go Vertical Cable System can be retrofitted to the ladders or rungs used in wind turbine, power supply, telecommunications or other industries. The system, which can support up to 8 workers, consists of:  

Approved cable (three diameters and two materials for choice)  

Ergonomic interfaces  

A revolutionary guided-type fall arrester adaptable with all approved diameters of cable  


High Quality & Flexible 

Components are made from high quality materials with corrosion resistant finishes.  Söll Vi-Go system is especially versatile and very simple to install thanks to its very few components.  Söll Vi-Go is available in different models and materials.  

Suitable for Many Locations 

Söll Vi-Go interfaces give access to different applications from the most standard to the most specific.  The system offers installation compatibility in a wide variety of environments (vibration, wind, rain, heat) and has been designed to increase user safety.  

Unrivalled Fall Arrest 

Due to its technological design and internal mechanisms, the fall arrester is extremely safe as it eliminates incorrect usage and due to its absorbing element reduces the fall impact on the user.  In the event of a fall, the system (cable & interfaces) does not require alteration hence only requires an inspection by a competent person.  

Safety for all Users 

Each fall arrester is equipped with a shock absorbing element made of stainless steel which is unique to Söll. This highly effective, durable absorber reduces the impact force to a minimum on a worker‘s body in the event of a fall. The value falls considerably below 6 KN which is stipulated in the EN 353-1 standard.  Since each shuttle is equipped with a cushioning element as opposed to being on the cable, the loads on the cable fixings are effectively reduced when there are several users. After a fall the cable does not necessarily need to be replaced.  

Easy To Use 

The user wears a full body harness (EN 361 compliant) and fastens the karabiner hook of the Söll Vi-Go shuttle to the fall protection/fall arrest attachment ring of a harness.  The unlock button is pressed with the thumb; the slider can then be opened using fingers. The shuttle can be placed on the approved cable by lifting the latch slightly.  Users can start climbing or descending once the shuttle has been fixed to the cable. The short distance between the harness and the shuttle is ergonomically positive and very safe.
