The fall protection provider has been working to develop its roofing portfolio for the past 12 months. Latchways’ initial BIM portfolio demonstrates a major investment into the future growth of the business and brings a unique offering to customers. By being able to integrate fall protection at the design stage of buildings, architects and specifiers get an entirely simplified process which at the same time offers more complexity and more intelligence.

Sheu Wah Ho, technical services engineer at Latchways plc, explained, “Our ManSafe fall protection systems are trusted around the world to ensure people are safe on an extraordinarily wide range of structures, from buildings to towers to bridges. So it’s hugely important for us to continually be proactive and give our customers the absolute best in fall protection. BIM is really starting to be embraced by the construction industry as a whole and we wanted to be the first in fall protection to be there.”

Speaking about the advantages offered by the new products, Wah Ho said, “We can offer our customers full compliance with standards, full compatibility with existing systems, clear modelling guidelines, improved design processes and most importantly, the capability to truly protect people working at height.”
