Cable-Based Overhead Fall Protection For Aircraft Hangars
Overhead horizontal lifelines provide the most customizable pass-through fall protection in the world. This flexibility is particularly important for our aviation clients who service dramatically different types and sizes of aircrafts in a vast variety of structures.
Fall Protection Expertise
As the industry leader, Flexible Lifeline Systems (FLS) is acknowledged as the only true turnkey provider of innovative fall arrest solutions. We set the standard for fall arrest capability, quality, and efficiency when it comes to fall safety for aircraft maintenance.
Single span systems are economical, cable-based, stainless steel fall arrest systems that provide fall protection for up to three users and a span of 200 feet.
Our multi-span systems accommodates horizontal, inclined, curved and vertical requirements, allowing a user to travel unlimited lengths without having to disconnect and re-connect to the system.
Overhead Cable Fall Protection System Features
Cable based systems offer unparalleled flexibility. Our engineers are able to develop and install both single and multi-span overhead horizontal lifelines that accommodate aircraft ranging in size from 777s and C-130s, to Cessna and Challenger aircraft.
Cable based systems allow multiple workers comfortable and safe access to all working areas of the aircraft. Maintenance personnel will able to safely service the fuselage, wing, tail, or engine.
Continuous Fall Protection
The unique and patented overhead shuttle unit glides freely over stainless steel cables providing continuous protection over the entire length of the system.
Cable based systems include built-in user-friendly tension indicators, in-line energy absorbers to reduce end loads, serial numbering of all components and are simple and economical to install.
Indoor and Outdoor Use
Systems are all-weather use for optimum productivity so they can be installed wherever aircraft maintenance is needed, whether inside the hanger or outdoors.
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.
