How many times have you felt the need to climb the side of a steel column? For me, no more than 2 or 3 times. But if you're some sort of steel worker that needs to get up to high places to inspect, work, or do whatever people do on the sides of very high steel beams, these unique column climbing shoe attachments might be for you.

They're called Column Climbers, and they're to bused in tandem with a column claw the grip with your hands, a harness, along with safety tie-off lanyards that'll catch you if you happen to slip or fall. When used together, the steel column climbers allow workers to comfortable stand upright and stand with two hands free on the sides of steel beams without the need for a forklift, crane, or construction elevator.
How they work is, the Column Climbers attach to your feet right over your shoes, and use extreme leverage while attaching to the flanges of the beam. The leverage force applied by the climbers are so intense that they can not be dislodged with a sledgehammer blow, nor does mud, dirt, grease, water, ice, or even asphaltic coating on the steel have any affect over the climbers grip.
Depending on the size and thickness of the steel beam flange, you may need to adjust the column climbers to fit properly using the adjustable, military-grade armor plate steel nosing. The shoe attachments also use a wrap-around heel bar and high-temp, cut-resistant straps with quick-connect buckles that allow you to step in and out of the climbers very quickly and easily.
These unique steel column climbing shoe attachments gives steel workers unmatched mobility that allows them to quickly climb to wherever they need to be without waiting on cranes and other mobility equipment to become available. They can instantly climb up and down, positioning themselves correctly and safely to connect, bolt-up, or weld.
