FLS engineered, fabricated and installed a total of twelve enclosed track and trolley systems capable of supporting three users each. FLS designed the safety systems at elevations below HVAC and fire protection equipment to prevent interference with other hangar systems.
Overhead fall protection was needed to safely access the tanker trucks in the inside truck bays as well as the railcars along a 300’ section of track.
FLS engineered a solution to accommodated the facility’s overhead gantry cranes so they could travel unimpeded by the overhead self-retracting safety lanyards.
FLS designed and installed three FlexRail Fall Protection Systems, one approximately 350 feet in total length over the rail line and two FlexRail approximately 292 feet in total length over the loading area and rail line.
Overhead fall protection was needed on the old and new plastics silos for workers to connect the feeder tubes to tanker trucks while on top of the trucks. FLS designed, fabricated and installed 8 FlexRail Systems.
Due to new operational needs, the client needed to extend the existing systems in one bay to offer further fall protection coverage for their workers. The total addition was of 250ft of Twin FlexRail.
As part of the new development, FCL Builders contracted Flexible Lifeline Systems for the design, fabrication, supply, inspection, load testing and certification of the FLS’ rigid rail fall arrest solution, FlexRail.
For this project, Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, engineered, and installed a total of six (6) Type 1 FlexRail systems. Each system was designed and engineered for a two (2) user fall arrest.
FLS provided foundation design and anchor bolts for gallow mounting, as well as all fabricated parts, hardware, and system components.
FLS designed compliant and user-friendly fall protection for an American Airlines maintenance hanger while specific clearance requirements.
The FLS team devised a hybrid system, in which a very light-weight tube would be installed the full length of the cable system run. This tube acts as a compression strut along the entire length of the cable, and will distribute any fall arrest loads, both horizontal and vertical, without structural damage to the wood trusses.
The project consisted of providing five new horizontal lifeline systems to provide workers an overhead tie-off while working on the rigging grid.
An overhead fall protection system was needed in their Acrylic Bay to access the tops of trucks loading materials for distribution.
Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, engineered, and installed one 140′ Overhead Horizontal Lifeline on gallows. Encore Wire installed foundations based on Flexible Lifeline Systems’ design and anchor bolts.
FLS designed, fabricated, and installed gallows with connected overhead horizontal lifeline systems. These systems allow Katoen employees to safely access the tops of bulk railcars.
Merfish came as a new customer for Flexible Lifeline Systems, seeking out a fall protection solution for its employees climbing stacks of pipe in order to attach rigging hardware for lifting with overhead cranes.
Overhead fall protection was needed to safely access the tanker trucks and ISOTainertrailers in the truck bay. A FlexBridge was designed by FLS engineers to safely access both lanes in the truck bay regardless of the configuration of the trucks/trailers below.
The Southwest Airlines maintenance team required the capability to add two 737-900 aircraft near the front of one of their hangars requiring the engineering of atypical support connections for the system anchor points.
FLS installed approximately 900 total feet of FlexGuard Permanent Guardrail on various areas of the main building roof. Most notably, the area around the rooftop access hatch was able to be protected by FlexGuard Permanent, due to the versatility and adjustability of the product.
Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, installed, and engineered an 85 feet long Multi Span Lifeline System with eight redirect anchors.
Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, supplied, and installed 32 Tieback Anchors, one 280 feet Multi Span Lifeline System, and one FlexGuard Portable safety railing.
Flexible Lifeline Systems’ scope of work included the design, supply, and installation of four Horizontal Lifeline systems. Two systems were positioned on Roof A and two systems on Roof B starting from the hatch and running the parameter of the rooftoop.
The FLS design included a structural analysis of the new building and a rigorous approval process to prove that the FLS system was a substantial improvement over the system originally specified for rooftop fall safety.
Horizontal Lifelines and single point anchors were needed on multiple rooftops to allow safe access to the roof for maintenance.
FLS designed three Multi-Span Lifeline Systems (33’, 113’ and 210’) to access the roof on 2 buildings at the Brooks Peanut Co. shelling factory (a subsidiary of Olam Edible Nuts).
FLS Engineers provided an OSHA compliant system that includes horizontal lifeline systems along with strategically placed tieback anchors to accommodate window washing personnel.
Flexible Lifeline engineers reviewed construction plans and assessed potential hazards. FLS designed, supplied, and installed a Multi-Span Lifeline System totaling about 480ft, located approximately 10ft along the rooftop’s leading edge.
FLS designed, supplied, and installed thirty-four (34) membrane posts (PN LAKL2POST) to the roof deck using toggle bolts (PN LAKL2TOGA) to make a single 1250 ft. Multi-Span Lifeline System.
FLS installed approximately 900 total feet of FlexGuard Permanent Guardrail on various areas of the main building roof. The area around the rooftop access hatch was able to be protected by FlexGuard Permanent, due to the versatility and adjustability of the product.
Rooftop tieback anchors were needed to facilitate a window washing system for Texas A&M University.
FLS designed and engineered five single point anchors for a Nestle and Ozarka distribution center.
The Flexible Lifeline Systems (FLS) Mobile Fall Arrest System was quick to install, can be reconfigured as needed, and very reasonable when compared to installing a permanent fall arrest system that could only be used in one location.
