CHECKMATE SAFETY LLP Technical File Ref VR VR – Vertical Rail NEVER COPY, AMEND OR ISSUE THIS DOCUMENT WITHOUT THE WRITTEN AUTHORITY OF CHECKMATE ISSUED BY: Oliver Auston 3 1 O UTLINE OF DEVICE FUNCTION VR The design is of an extrusion that runs inside another extrusion and in the event of a fall a cam locks the trolley within the rail. The trolley cam is sprung loaded (one tors ion spring each side of the cam) to give a mechanical lock or park facility and a gravity lock caused by a fall. The device is fitted with a SAL absorber sewn directly to the unit. The device will trail a person as they climb and will run down the rail unassisted as they descend. The design allows for the rail sections to be connect ed with studs and pr ovide a good interface of sections so that the trolley m oves between sections un hindered. In case of temperature variations and the c ontracting/expanding differences between the rail and the support structure the rails are mounted using sliding “T” bolts that allow variances to be overcome.

Installation Guide 1. Check you have the correct am ount of equipment before starting the installation. This can be checked agaist orders and packing list within packaging. 2. Check you have the correct tools for the installation.See tool guide for details. 3. Check you and your team have the correct PPE Equipment necessary to install systems if on site and at height.(If in doubt consult CHECKMATE for recommendations) Tools: 19mm spanner or socket with wrench , torque wrench with a range of (0-50 Nm) and hammer, level ,tape (for locati on of T bolts) pencil or marker. See section 3 (General Arrange ment) plan for system set up. a) Position extrusion on ladder or alterna tive location and mark where the fixing locations are to be. (Min number of fixi ngs per length of 4m extrustion is 2 sets) Next slide the ‘T’ bolt sets dow n the ‘T’ slot and using a sm all amount of tape hold in a rough poistion so as to stop them silding. Present extrusion to location and hold in posit ion, the second installer can then place back plates over rungs or brackets and usi ng washers and nuts provided hand tighten. Once hand tight check level and position of syst em. Hold and tighten with spanner to till the system is tourt. Using the torque wrench, torque fixings to 35Nm (-0+5). b) If another extrusion length is to be joined, locate dowels in through holes of extrusion and using hammer tap down until flush with head of dowel. Place the expansion plate over the dowels. The fi rst rail is now ready for the second extrusion to be located and fitted in place. c) Follow procedure a) and repeat. d) If end plates are to be fitted follow pro cedure b) but use end dowels and end plate. e) Install certificati on plate to accescable area, date and number system.

Planning Guide When specifying the CHECKMATE VR SYSTEM you need to check the suitabilityand location for the system. (Access ladders for; roofs, cranes, chimneys, platforms, flaf poles, communication towers and any other height access areas) You need to check for: • split levels in ladders and platforms, • fixing locations and position, • that the area below is clear of obstructions and potential hazards • if permanent end stops are required (if you never want the user to leave the system) • any angles (systems must not deviate from 12 ° ) • number of users Accurate dimensions and information are required for: • ladder length and width (to check foot room) • fixing location (central or side) • fixing type (rung or fabricated mounting plates)
