    Our Height Safety Ecosystem

    WE THINK 360

    To us, simple means one sole focus, one trusted partner, and complete protection from every angle. We call this 360-degree height safety.

    Our Purpose


    We're here to make safe simple – so our partners can focus on what's important to them.

    Our Story

    Scale & Agility

    As the world’s largest independent height safety brand, we have the scale to make things happen. But we think size is nothing without agility. Our structure enables us to adapt to changing demands and move fast when speed is needed.
