Multi-Span

The multi-span horizontal cable system connects two or more single-span systems. It accommodates horizontal, inclined, and curved requirements. Unique trans-fasteners allow a user to travel unlimited lengths without having to disconnect and re-connect to the system. The multi-span system includes all of the features and benefits of the single-span system along with 100% fall protection for multiple users from the ground up.
