The C7 Cable Climbing Sleeve is a patent-pending fall arresting sleeve designed to be up to 25 percent lighter and to provide unrivaled climbability. With its true, easy, one-handed operation, users can attach, detach, and re-attach the sleeve in seconds. It offers uninterrupted ascent and is engineered to mitigate nuisance lock-ups on descent after long days at height. It’s designed with a double-action gate opening mechanism that ensures the sleeve will stay securely attached to the cable. The C7 Cable Climbing Sleeve’s built-in energy absorber and anti-panic locking cam ensures safe arresting performance in the event of a slip or fall.

The Cable Climbing System offers users easy installation with superior energy-absorbing properties, making it an ideal personal fall arrest system (PFAS) solution for vertical applications. Its patent-pending mounting clamps reduce needed installation hardware by up to 25 percent, offering easier installation and reducing the risk of dropped objects at height. The system also features a patent-pending energy absorbing component that provides superior arresting forces in the event of a fall.

“We designed the system and C7 Cable Climbing Sleeve with the end user as our primary focus,” said Kevin Fitzpatrick, Guardian’s senior product manager. “We wanted workers to not only maintain a safe climbing experience but also do so with ease. When used together, the Cable Climbing Sleeve and System makes climbing easier and quicker for a better all-around experience.”

The C7 Cable Climbing Sleeve and Cable Climbing System are qualified to ANSI Z359.16 and OSHA 1910.26 & 1926.1053 when used together. The Cable Climbing System is available in galvanized steel utilizing a 3/8”, 1×7 strand, galvanized steel solid core cable.
