Catchfans – the new high-rise protection

19 September 2018

Every person working on high-rise construction sites is potentially at risk from falling objects. Often, falling objects can also put members of the public at risk too, beyond the workzone boundary. The Catchfan is designed to absorb the energy of falling objects and mitigate against falling objects posing a danger to the public or causing potential damage to property.

Our Catchfans are known worldwide to add a greatly improved level of collective protection in high rise construction and offer versatility and accommodates the variety of challenges any site can present.

With increasing numbers of high-rise projects in progress and in planning throughout Canada, the Catchfan offers a versatile and transferable solution for temporary works designers and site planners, helping to achieve an improved level of protection on high-rise construction sites.

Some advantages of using the Catchfan:
  • The vertemax™ Catchfans can be used on both reinforced concrete and steel frames. See which components fit different applications below.
  • Standard sizes of 6m (19′-8″) and 4m (13′-1″) project from the building 10′-6″ giving you the protection you need.
  • This is capable of arresting a 100 kg mass twice on any part of the system from a 7 m drop height.
  • The Catchfan is manufactured and tested to be fully compliant with Canadian, North American and European Standard EN-1263-1 Type T.


vertemax™, the workzone safety company, works hard to develop and bring to market products and services designed to protect people.  Putting people first, whether the general public, on-site workers or any of your team, our products offer both the highest safety standards and cost benefit.

We’re supplying the #construction, #rail, #industrial and #marine industries with first-class workzone safety to customers worldwide by:

  • Innovation to protect people

Providing a holistic approach to working safely at height, the Catchfans in conjunction with our barriers can be used in double height, providing a great solution for a self-contained building.
