Stopsave: The height safety & fall protection specialist
Your height safety partner

Stopsave: the height of safety

At Stopsave, we take the risk out of working at heights.

We’re experts in height safety, and supply a wide range of specialist products to ensure that no worker is exposed to unnecessary danger when operating at height, whatever the environment.

We have invested in building up and servicing the UK’s largest fleet of height safety equipment, available for purchase or hire from our depots in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, and Cumbernauld, Glasgow.

We are authorised agents for most leading height safety equipment manufacturers, and our experienced technicians and engineers inspect, service, repair and re-certify our products to ensure they are correctly installed and meet safety legislation requirements.

Our sales and operations team is highly experienced in all aspects of height safety, and is always willing to share its specialist knowledge with customers. Our advisory services range from product recommendations for specific work activities to helping clients to develop and maintain an effective height safety strategy.

Stopsave has made substantial investments in the size and scale of our hire fleet of height safety products, and this enables us to offer a ready-response service from stock for most applications.

We track 5000 height safety products in operation to ensure their service record is up to date and that they are safe to use.

We work closely with managers and employers to develop an effective
height safety strategy: we become your professional height safety partner.
