Versatile Fall Protection Solution

FLS Cable based horizontal lifeline systems provide a safe means of tie off for workers in a variety of applications. With spans up to 180’ and supporting multiple users, FLS Cable lifelines provide an economical and efficient solution for workers at height.

Whether designed for an overhead application, such as an aircraft hangar, or at foot level on a roof, a properly engineered FLS Cable lifeline ensures the safety of employees and workers exposed to falls.

Cable Versus Rigid Rail

There has been much debate about which is better, cable or rigid rail horizontal lifelines. When designed correctly, both cable and rigid rail lifelines offer excellent levels of fall protection. Rigid rail systems have the advantage of lower fall distances and are often preferred when work is performed less than 12’ above a lower level. Cable based lifelines have the advantage of practicality in scenarios where a rigid rail system is less feasible, such as on roofs, arena rigging grids and along overhead crane rails.

Continuous Fall Protection

Continuous Fall Protection

FLS Cable trolleys and shuttles on all cable based lifelines feature pass thru capability of intermediate support points. Eliminating the need to use double lanyards or disconnect from the lifeline reduces risk and improves user efficiency.

FLS Multi Span Lifelines has been third-party tested. They meet both OSHA and ANSI requirements as well as standards set by CSA 13-04 & 16-04.

Is a Horizontal Lifeline or a Rigid Rail system better?

Depends on the application, task, clearance, and feasibility of installation. Rigid Rail offers superior fall distances while Horizontal Lifelines can be installed places Rigid Rail may not be feasible.

What are OSHA regulations for lifelines?

For General Industry (1910), for Construction (1926). Recommend using ANSI Z359.6 for further guidance on any design of lifeline systems.

What is a horizontal lifeline?

A component of a fall protection system consisting of a line for connection to anchorages at both ends as a means for connecting other components of the system to the anchorage. Lifelines can be engineered as horizontal or vertical, temporary, or permanent, rigid or flexible.
