Cable Based Horizontal Lifeline Systems
FLS Cable based horizontal lifeline systems are a versatile fall protection solution that provides 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.
Pass Thru Capability
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.
All Flexible Lifeline Systems are available in 316 stainless steel cable and components, ensuring they will last for 20+ years.
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.
