INDIAN INOVATIX LTD. (IIL) developed its first product ‘Guardall’ – Vertical Fall Arrest System on Rigid Rail for the safety of its own workmen when they were required to climb the 100 mtrs. tall microwave tower at "Pij", Gujarat, for Department of Space under the ‘SITE’ Programme of Late Dr.Vikram Sarabhai, which dawned the Satellite era in india, for education of rural masses.
Subsequently, ‘Guardall’ was perfected and was manufactured & installed on Reactor V - Project Dhruva, India’s first indigenous atomic reactor. This job was secured against global competition for BARC.
During all such jobs on height, Inovatix realised that there are different situations and actions which are encountered by the workman which make them vulnerable to accidental falls.
Inovatix then developed unique fall protection systems which are designed to take care of different hazardous situations and actions at height. Further, the fall protection systems limit the free fall to a few centimetres or limits the average force on the body to 3G.
Inovatix also recognised the need to rescue the workmen from height. Consequently, equipment with controlled descent feature which lowers the workman to a safe place was developed.
Inovatix believes that fall protection equipment should operate reliably and predictably, which is automatic as opposed to manual operation, since accidents or emergencies are unexpected.
Inovatix has done the pioneering work in the field of design, development, installation of fall protection safety devices, rescue equipment and emergency escape device. Information on some of the important devices and equipment is given on the following pages alongwith illustrative pictures demonstrating the product in use
