Rooftop Horizontal Lifeline Systems For Fall Arrest
FLS Multi Span Lifeline Systems are versatile, economical solutions that equip rooftop workers with continuous, active fall protection. A single horizontal lifeline allows up to three workers to perform their tasks with complete fall protection. Because workers are continually attached to the safety line, Multi Span Lifelines make it possible for workers to safely access all areas of a rooftop.
The FLS Flexible Horizontal Lifeline has created a revolution in fall arrest system design through the use of energy absorbing anchorage posts. Multi Span Lifelines can extend up to 50 feet between posts. The system is modular and utilizes a post and base plate allowing for easy configuration and streamlined efficient installation.
Compatible With All Major Roof Types
In the event of a fall, energy absorbing anchorage posts disperse and minimize loads applied to the rooftop. The system has been designed for application across virtually all major roof types including relatively delicate roof structures without costly penetrations and closures. The system can also be applied to standing seam, membrane or metal profile rooftops.

Rooftop 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.
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.
