Altus Safety, the working at height solutions provider, has become the latest specialist fall protection company to be appointed as a Registered Installer by prestigious safety equipment brand, MSA Latchways.
Joining a select network of approved installers around the UK, Altus Safety has gained the coveted Latchways Registered Installer status after only two years in business, thanks to the track record and expertise of the company’s senior team and its reputation for delivering technically complex and challenging projects.
Altus Safety has undergone a rigorous due diligence process, which included submission of documentation to back up the company’s competence in commercial planning, technical capabilities, and health and safety expertise, culminating in installation training for all Altus Safety engineers. The company’s directors, Simon Mealor and Mark Weaver, have also undergone in depth training in the design and installation of Latchways’ horizontal & vertical lifelines, walkways and edge protection systems, alongside the rest of the Altus Safety team, to ensure a consistent approach across the company and the entire Latchways Registered Installer network.
Comments Paul Horobin from Latchways: “We have been extremely impressed with both the calibre of work that Altus Safety has delivered and the professionalism of the team. The company may be young, but it’s backed by over a quarter of a century of combined experience from the co-directors and staff with an ambitious, dynamic approach to growth that reflects our own commercial culture and positioning as market leader.
“We are very selective about the Registered Installers we appoint because they are representatives of the MSA Latchways brand so we have to be confident of their installation expertise, professionalism and commercial outlook. Altus Safety ticked all the boxes for us and we’re delighted to welcome them to our UK Registered Installer network.”
Headquartered in Cheshire with a southern office in Reading, Altus Safety has grown quickly since being established in 2016 and operates nationally to provide permanent fall protection, roof access and façade access safety solutions for both the new build and refurbishment construction sector, the facilities and property management sector and direct to end user clients.
Simon Mealor adds: “As fall protection and working at height professionals, we have built an enviable reputation very quickly due to our expertise and our proven project delivery capabilities.
“The natural synergy between our brand as a sought after and respected working at height solutions provider and MSA Latchways’ market-leading position make this a perfect, mutually beneficial partnership that will capitalise on the shared ethos of both companies and benefit customers with both premium systems and a value-added service.”
