MSA's Design and Specification Team

MSA Latchways Design and Specification Team

MSA offer a free design and specification service providing comprehensive support and advice for clients, architects, contractors and specifiers. Following the hierarchy of fall protection and combining excellent technical knowledge with a clear understanding of the concept of worker safety at height, the in-house team can design the ideal fall protection system layout for your project and assist you with:

  • Assessing the risk
  • Selecting the right system
  • System applications
  • User competency
  • Product compatibility (for example with major roofing manufacturers)
  • Specifications (including NBS and Master Format)
  • Standard fixing details
  • Design layout guidelines
  • Alternative Latchways products to meet your requirements

The Team can provide system designs for all applications—not just rooftops—including traditional horizontal systems, overhead/industrial systems vertical systems and WinGrip systems.

Latchways ‘Work at Height Proposal’

A ‘Work at Height Proposal’ is supplied to all customers to offer information and advice on how to provide a complete fall protection solution. The Proposal includes:

  • A full system design (using the information provided in the Design Questionnaire—see below)
  • Information on the Latchways product range and how they are Fit-for-Purpose.
  • Guidance on planning for rescue should a fall occur.

Design Questionnaire

The completion of a Design Questionnaire enables MSA to be able to specify a full Latchways design. The Questionnaire takes into account:

  • Areas requiring access
  • Construction of area requiring fall protection (e.g. roof material)
  • Any known hazards

Download a Design Questionnaire (see below) or contact the Design and Specification team for more details.

Installer Companies

The Design and Specification service is supported by a global network of installer companies who play a full and pro-active role in providing a complete solution for the chosen design, from installation, testing and certification through to maintenance of the system.
