Railcar/Truck Overhead Horizontal Lifelines

Overhead Fall Protection Systems For Railcar & Truck Loading

Overhead horizontal lifelines provide the most customizable pass-through fall protection in the world. This is particularly important for our clients who service different types and sizes of railcars and trucks.

Single Span Systems

Single span systems are economical, cable-based, stainless steel fall arrest systems that provide fall protection for up to three users for 200 feet.

Flexible Horizontal Lifeline for Trucks

Multi-Span Systems

Our multi-span system accommodates horizontal, inclined, curved and vertical requirements, allowing a user to travel unlimited lengths without having to disconnect and re-connect to the system.

Horizontal Lifeline Installation

Thanks to the flexibility of FLS, our engineers are able to develop and install both single and multi-span flexible horizontal lifelines that accommodate all your protocols. With these systems, multiple workers have the ability to safely and efficiently access the entire length of any truck or railcar.
