GRAVITEC IS TURNING 30!
Gravitec Systems has seen fall protection evolve from workers using waist belts and ropes to full body harnesses and energy absorbing lanyards. Over the last 30 years we have added engineers, trainers, technicians, writers, and graphic artists to our staff and expanded to almost 60 full-time employees. We made the move to Washington State and established North America’s finest fall protection training facility. We have grown alongside the fall protection industry and look forward to another 30 years of protecting workers at height and the innovations it will bring. Thank You to all who have supported us over the years. Click hereto see a little history.

PROJECT PROFILE: GOVERNOR'S MANSION
This past year Gravitec was both honored and thrilled to be involved in the fall protection maintenance of the beautiful Georgian style mansion that has been home to every Washington state governor since 1909. The Latchways Constant Force Post System was chosen for the mansion's flat roofs for its low profile, its energy absorption properties, and the fact it does not require invasive modification, which is key for the preservation of such an important and historical landmark.
