SureTrack Climbing & Fall Protection System
High strength aluminum SureTrack Trolley offers quiet, frictionless operation while climbing or descending. The stainless steel spring construction provides quick braking should a fall occur.

The system may also be provided as an integral part of a SureTrack Ladder for structures without existing ladders. This is a low cost alternative to new ladder installation with integral fall protection.

The Miller SureTrack system is a user friendly, reliable means of fall protection while climbing a ladder. Constructed of high strength 6061T6 aluminum, the rigid rail system provides for long term service life.


  • Climbing protection is assured on vertical, horizontal or curved applications
  • Lightweight, easy to install design; corrosion resistant aluminum construction
  • Ideal alternative to cages, offset ladders and transfer platforms
  • Easy to use for both novice and experienced climbers
  • Hands free operation whether ascending or descending
  • Arrest falls within inches
  • Accommodates multiple users at the same time for increased productivity and ease of rescue
  • Meets all applicable OSHA, ANSI and CSA standards

The system consists of three key components:

  1. Climbing rail that installs easily to existing ladders or step irons
  2. A trolley that couples positively to the rail, yet moves freely up or down
  3. A full body harness and / or body belt
