Fall protection and insulation system
Sky-Web and Sky-Web II Fall Protection and Insulation Support Systems are the easy-to-install safety systems designed to enhance worker safety and productivity on the jobsite. The system features and benefits include:
- Web of knotted nylon mesh attaches to the perimeter of the roof’s secondary structural members to protect against leading-edge-of-roof falls.
- Passive-restraint solution similar to an automobile airbag.
- No action required by workers, such as tying off with lanyards, to provide safety.
- Greatly reduces the distance of a fall—and thus the severity of injury.
- Can remain in place after building is complete to act as a support system for roof insulation.

Note: Sky-Web systems do not eliminate fall hazard from the non-leading edge of the roof and during installation.
Bosch Power Tools
Bosch Power Tools is heating up job sites this fall with the launch of the company’s first 12V Max heated jacket and battery holster/controller USB power backup. The jacket is water and wind resistant for maximum warmth and flexibility, while also offering a convenient built-in battery backup power source to keep USB-compatible cell phones and other important electronics charged and ready to go. This product also features three quick warming core heat zones that start warming in a matter of minutes and provide up to six hours of heated runtime on low heat level. A three-level heat controller button on the jacket’s chest lights up in red, green and blue to denote heat levels of high, medium and low. Visit boschtools.com for more information.
The company’s new Podium Ladder offers a larger standing surface providing more comfort and four times greater work zone that enables the user to reach all directions from one position. One of the benefits of this design is how easily it enables the user to reach traditionally difficult areas by providing a greater range of motion. The waist high guardrail and the larger platform surface also delivers more comfort for the user required to stand for a prolonged period of time. The guardrail uses the Locktop design that securely and conveniently organizes tools and accessories at the top of the ladder. The functional top is also transformed to serve as a wraparound guardrail for total freedom of movement. The ladder also features the newly designed Edge360 bracing system that increases the size of the ladder foot pad, braces the first step and provides protection at all angles.
