  • Horizontal Lifelines For Fall Arrest Systems In Temporary or Permanent Solutions
    arrest systems also referred to as HLLs protect workers on elevated work surfaces such as rooftops chemical vats bridge trusses pipe racks crane runways or steel girders on the upper floors of buildings during construction In maintenance facilities they protect workers atop airplane wings buses and large trucks HLLs can be temporary or permanent A Variety of Factors Should Be Considered For HLL Installation Factors to be considered in the design and selection of HLLs include the potential for pendulum like swing falls the maximum forces that could be generated in the event of a fall the number of workers that need to be protected the strength of the building members or other places where the line will be mounted and the height of the system from the ground or other level including intermediate obstructions such as equipment of a pipe rack Additionally where more than one option is available the ease with which workers can do their job while being protected and cost considerations become important Click to Call or dial us at 1 855 279 2000 To speak to a FallProof expert about how these solutions can be installed in your workplace please click on the button above or send us a note using our quick contact form You will be able to upload drawings and other materials to help with our preliminary evaluation of your needs Horizontal Cable Lifelines Horizontal cable lifelines are an active fall arrest system that can be installed for workers at height across a broad spectrum of industries and applications FallProof has designed engineered and installed them for railcar loading and unloading steel mill crane runways aviation hangers rooftops etc Less expensive and quicker than their rigid track counterparts these systems are generally used for projects with higher fall clearances Fixed Track Rigid

    system features a taut steel cable with a rope grab or other type of stopping mechanism The cable runs midway between the rails and is attached to anchor points at the top and bottom with additional connections depending on the length The worker uses a short lanyard to attach a carabiner on the rope grab to a D ring on the front of the safety harness As the worker climbs the arrester travels up or down with him If the worker missteps the arrester locks up on the cable and arrests the descent within a very short distance When properly used the fall is arrested within one or two rungs and self rescue is possible merely by stepping back on Self Retracting Lifelines Can Provide Protection In Some Situations In some situations protection can be easily provided by using a self retracting lifeline SRL A single point anchor is attached to the roof or other structure at the top of the fixed ladder and an SRL is attached to the anchor and connected to the worker s body harness As he climbs up or down the SRL either lets out or retracts similar to a seat belt In the event of a fall the SRL immediately locks up In each of these systems the worker can safely climb up and down the entire length without having to disconnect and reattach to a tie off point along the way When permanently installed outside all components must be designed to stand up to the elements For that reason they are generally manufactured out of either galvanized or stainless steel When designed and installed by FallProof you can count on everything being fully OSHA and ANSI compliant Click to Call or dial us at 1 855 279 2000 Contact us today by clicking on the blue button above to initiate a call or by using our contact form and providing us with a brief description of your workplace needs You will be able to upload documents or drawings all inquiries are held in strict confidence We also offer a free on site assessment We are confident that before long you will be sharing our worker first philosophy Read more about us here Below are a few examples of how these applications are put to use As in the picture above lifelines are used for roof access applications at warehouse and industrial buildings Workers needing access to a roof for inspection and utility repairs often need to climb up a ladder attached to the side of a building Installation of these systems provides adequate fall protection to those workers allowing safe access up and down the ladder Another application where these systems are used is in the wind and power industries Placed inside shafts and attaching to the ladders these systems are used as active fall arrest protection for workers who are making the ascent to the top of the turbines Being enclosed in the wind turbine shaft does not provide protection from falling
