Ladder safety made simple
German Master Roofer Udo Heyl suffered two accidents whilst working from ladders before developing the LeiKoSi system for quickly and safely securing the top of a ladder. Unlike other devices of this nature the safety attachment can be fixed in place on the ground using folding bars, in seconds and by following just a few simple steps.
It locks securely in the gutter, flat roof profiles or in window or railing parapets, providing a reliable way of securing straight, extending or cable ladders.
If the ladder needs to be moved, you can simply push it from the ground without loosening the anchoring - and because there is no need for a second person to secure the ladder, the LeiKoSi also offers economic benefits for businesses.
For his invention in 2019, Udo Heyl was awarded the national prize for outstanding innovational achievements for the building trade.
