A Saskatoon-based company has developed a system designed to prevent people falling from grain bins.

Northern Strands unveiled its grain bin tethering device at Ag in Motion last week. The device features a cable that runs from the bottom of the vertical ladder to the top of the roof ladder. A wire rope grab moves along the cable while attached to the climber’s harness.

The company is offering cable mounts for Westeel and Westor 1805 bins, and are also working on mounts that fit other bin designs.
