Lifeline Systems for Fall Protection

Flexible Lifeline Systems has designed and installed Lifeline Systems to provide safe and effective fall protection in a variety of applications for over 20 years. On average, we design, supply and install over 45,000 feet of cable-based safety lifelines every year.

Proprietary Optimized Systems

Lifeline Systems typically consist of a 316SS 8mm cable supported every 30’, with overall lengths up to 500’ or more. Integrated energy absorbers, turnbuckles and tension indicators manage loads imparted to the supporting structure and the users. Our proprietary software analyzes the dynamic forces of each system to provide predictable and real world results to ensure worker safety in the event of a fall.

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. Also known as HLL, Horizontal Lifeline Systems provide increased safety, mobility, and reliability during the job. HLL Systems can be designed to provide either fall restraint or fall arrest protection and are used in various applications, such as loading docks and bays, rail runways, rooftops, bridges, etc.
