Quality

Quality

The essential attribute of the MSA Latchways fall arrest system is that it can be relied on to arrest a fall at the first time of asking. Where lives are at stake, the MSA commitment is to 100% effectiveness.

  • As an ISO9001 company, quality is central to all design and manufacturing procedures and is embedded into every aspect of the Latchways business process.
  • During product development, prototypes are subjected to comprehensive testing including static strength, corrosion resistance, locking, conditioning and dynamic performance. Testing is conducted in MSA's own laboratories and the results are submitted to external laboratories for independent verification.
  • Many system components are made from marine grade 316S stainless steel and the critical cast components are made from 17/4 PH stainless steel.
  • Every system is individually inspected and all critical castings are subject to X-ray inspection and either dye penetrant or magnetic particle analysis.
  • Every product is marked to provide complete traceability.
  • The minimum Latchways standard is that every component will perform to a safety factor of two.
