Permanent Lifeline Systems

Permanent Horizontal Lifeline

A Permanent horizontal lifeline System is typically a cable that is installed parallel to a fall hazard. Properly connecting to a horizontal lifeline with a lanyard and harness enables the user to travel parallel to the fall hazard. The lifeline is usually attached to the structure at set intervals, and can often change direction to follow the profile of the roof edge or other fall hazards. Horizontal lifelines can be attached at foot level when working on a top-level surface, such as a roof, but can also be attached overhead, such as airline hangers and bus depots.

A Horizontal Lifeline (HLL) system is required when a worker needs to traverse an area at height, such as a narrow roof area near the roof edge or along a sloped roof, while still connected and protected by a Fall Protection System. The design of the HLL is a complex process as loads are applied differently than from a single anchorage point.
Flexible horizontal lifeline systems (HLL) are for the attachment of personal protective equipment
(PPE) for protection against falls from height.

These systems are used for fall arresting and may be used for work positioning and travel restriction (worker restraint). Lifeline System in the form of fall protection that involves the safe stopping of a person already falling. It is one of several forms of fall protection which also include fall prevention (general protection that prevents persons from entering a fall hazard area e.g., guard rails) and fall restraint (personal protection which prevents persons who are in a fall hazard area from falling, e.g., fall restraint lanyards).

  • Very hard and robust components, equipped with extra-reinforced 7mm thick chains.

SecuRope - On Ground

  • EN 795:2012 Type C
  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

SecuRope - Overhead

Securope overhead lifeline. Most used configuration for industrial halls as the overhead lifeline reduces the fall distance.

  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

SecuRope - Overhead Lifeline Installation

In order to secure the TSS engineering department adapted the SecuRope system to the particular requirements of the factory.

Type of fixation - On post

The user stays connected while moving along the lifeline and passing the intermediate anchors, having an excellent freedom of movement and reaching safely any point of the structure.

  • EN 795:2012 Type C and D
  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

Type of fixation - On Unipost

Unipost means « Universal post ». It may be installed on several types of roofing, hot deck, cold deck, wood deck, prefabricated slab and concrete slab, thanks to the universal fixing interface in laser cut plate.

The Unipost protects the roofing from possible damages, when stopping a fall, thanks to an energy absorbing device located at the foot of the post, only the post tube deforms and not the fixing interface.

  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

Type of fixation - On Cold Deck Brackets

The fixing bracket for cold deck roofs has a unique design that distributes the load evenly. Combined with the energy absorbing mechanism of the SecuRope NEO lifeline, it is the best system for fragile roofs. Supplied with self drilling screws specially designed for their high pull out strength.

Ideal for the maintenance and repair of any industrial facility, safe access to solar panels, ventilation outlets, roof skylights and gutters.

  • EN 795:2012 Type C
  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

Type of fixation - On Standing Seam Roof

The fixing bracket for standing seam roof is clamped on the seam and doesn’t require any perforation. The clamps combine high pull out and shear strength.

Combined with the SecuRope NEO lifeline, the system completely absorbs the dilatation and contraction of the standing seam roof. Easy to install on new constructions or existing buildings.

  • EN 795:2012 Type C
  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

Type of fixation - On Hot Deck Brackets

The Multipost and SpotAnchor are designed for hot deck roofs. High resistance toggle bolts enable the fixation on corrugated metal
sheets, wooden panels or precast concrete.

Only the toggle bolts passes through the isolation, then thermal bridges are minimized. The roofing collar, in bitumen or PVC-P, is prefitted in the factory to guarantee the waterproofness.

Easier to retrofit on existing buildings.

  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

Type of fixation - On Steel Beams

The NEO SecuRope lifeline can be attached to beams through a system of clamps. Using this type of fastening enables a solid fixation of the lifeline without drilling.
Particularly useful for industrial configurations, the SecuRope NEO lifeline with crimping rings can stop a fall with very low cable deflection.

SecuRail Lifeline Classic

Horizontal SecuRail lifeline on ground

The SecuRail is a rigid fall arrest rail that can be installed on ground, wall and ceiling configuration. Its rectangular shape integrates well in the aesthetics of buildings. The cross shaped junction absorbs the dilatation as a result of temperature variation. A variety of 6 fall arrest trolleys makes this rail highly versatile.

The openable trolley VIA 6 enables the end user to connect and disconnect the trolley at any point of the rail.

SecuRail Pro

Horizontal SecuRail 2016 lifeline on ground

The SecuRail 2016 is a rigid and versatile fall arrest rail. This unique profile has a high inertia that enables a 6 meter span between supports. lt is ideal for work sites with low fall clearance.

  • EN 795:2012 Type D
  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

SafeAccess Rail Fall Arrest

Horizontal fall arrest

The SafeAccess is an undeformable fall arrest rail for industrial applications. Installed in overhead configuration, it is the most suitable system when the fall clearance is low.

ATEX certified for potentially explosive atmospheres, this rail is also ideal for petrochemical industries.

The aluminium rail is protected by a high-quality powder coated surface treatment that resists to marine environment.

The NAV 2 trolley equipped with rollers follows smoothly without any action from the end user.

  • CEN/TS 16415:2013

SecureRope QuickSet Cable Lifeline

SecuRope QuickSet Vertical lifeline

The SecuRope QuickSet is designed for wind turbines, pylones, masts or industrial sites. This flexible system is used with stainless steel cables. The glider is openable and can be inserted or removed at any point of the cable.

Two types of fall arrest systems are possible with this lifeline.

Type 1: Energy absorber fixed on the top anchor. It is permanently fixed on the lifeline.

Type 2: Energy absorber fixed on the opening glider. The glider locks instantly in case of a fall, triggering the energy absorption device.

SafeLadder Pro

The SafeLadder works with the same rail system as the MastLadder.

A Securail Pro is integrated to the frame of a ladder. A GRANVIA 4 trolley is inserted on this frame, which means that the user can comfortably climb the ladder up while being secured at all times.

Various SafeLadder types and accessories are available to fit any situation:
temporary SafeLadder, platform to cross the parapet, fold-up section for confined spaces, telescopic SafeLadder and traversing SafeLadder along a SafeAccess rail.
