The Pro-Bel Group of Companies has specialized in the design, manufacture, installation and inspection of window washing/fall arrest systems for over 25 years. We work with architects, general contractors and building owners designing systems that can include tie-back safety anchors, horizontal cable systems, monorail, rigging sleeves, davit bases, davit arms and roof cars. Our systems can be used for fall restraint; fall arrest and/or building maintenance.
We offer a free design service where we design your suspended maintenance equipment to meet all Codes and Standards no matter where the building is located. The system on your building may vary from anchors to powered platforms or require a roof car. We would be happy to make an appointment to come out and see your building to ensure that your system complies with ANSI/IWCA I-14.1 Standard, OSHA and any other State Codes.
