Horizontal Lifeline Systems for Fall Safety
Flexible Lifeline Systems has designed and installed Multi Span Lifelines to provide safe and effective fall protection in a variety of applications for over 20 years. On average, we design, supply and install over 9 miles of cable based lifelines every year.
Proprietary Optimized Systems
Multi Span lifelines 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.
Continuous Fall Protection
Multi Span Horizontal Lifeline Systems feature intermediate supports and cable shuttles allowing users to pass thru without disconnecting from the lifeline, ensuring 100% tie-off.
Multi Span Horizontal Lifeline Systems are used in a variety of industries and applications including; roofs, overhead cranes, pipe racks, railcars, water treatment facilities, arena rigging grids and many more.
Multi-Span Lifelines Case Studies
FlexGuard Installation for a Warehouse Roof
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.
Multi-Span Lifelines for Building Maintenance
Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, supplied, and installed 32 Tieback Anchors, one 280 feet Multi Span Lifeline System, and one FlexGuard Portable safety railing.
Texas State University
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.
UTSA Rooftop Safety System
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.
Olam Edible Nuts – Multi-Span Lifelines
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).
Chait & Company – Multi-Span Lifelines
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.
Orion Construction Multi Span Rooftop Lifeline System
The General Services Administration requested the installation of a new fall protection system that replaced the existing non-engineered system located on the main roof level and to add a new system on the upper roof level.
Horizon Group/Houston Community College – Rooftop Multi Span Lifeline System
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.
George Steel – Rooftop Multi Span Lifeline System
FLS Engineers provided an OSHA compliant system that includes horizontal lifeline systems along with strategically placed tieback anchors to accommodate window washing personnel.
