Vertical fall safety provides security to workers. These include vertical safety harnesses,safety string trolleys, confinement protection, and lanyards. While not guaranteed to avoid an accident, these are often the best way of mitigating risk factors.
Both vertical and horizontal lifelines are designed to protect,but can’t always be used in office environments. There are many types to choose from, but engineers must consider the right type based on each specific situation to ensure the best type of protection is expected.
They’re a much better option than using ladders as they allow for people to stay flexible as they climb to work at many heights without needing to keep finding a new location to tie off. With a vertical fall protection system, accidents that occur from falls up the height of a line can be avoided thanks to a fixed-rate grip along the lines.
The Vertical Lifeline is a convenient system for setting up custom routes of protection. It offers the extra flexibility of climbing without unclipping, which eliminates the risk one may fall when they are near the top of their ascent or descent. It is often a must-have safety feature for climbing public ladders, wind turbines, pylons, railings and skylight screens, etc.
Permanently attached to the anchor point with a safety system, rather than leaving it for later. The idea behind these systems is that workers can maintain safety by means of ladder safety climbing devices. A variety of connector types and designs exist to meet your needs and best follow safety guidelines.
● Ladder Fall Protection System
● Power Line Wire Rope Lifeline
● Communication Tower Lifeline With Rope Grab
● Vertical Lifeline With Rope Grab System For Utilities
● DBI Detachable Cable Sleeve
● Flexible Cable and Fixed Ladder Fall Protection Systems
These safety systems are economical and versatile ways to eliminate the risk of falling off a ladder. A ladder safety system will usually consist of a carrier, safety sleeve, lanyard, connectors, and body harness.
DBI detachable cable systems offer more safety than the usual ladder cages. Additionally, the lad-Saf’s flexible cable system provides fall protection when climbing a fixed ladder, allowing users to move unrestrictedly.
● Comes with an integrated fall protection anchor point.
● Easy installation and use
● Cable Termination with Precision
● Long-lasting structural integrity, and corrosion-free service life.
● Comes with flexible mounting brackets for versatile use
The grab personal fall arrest devices are specifically designed to help keep workers safe while balancing mobility. It assists easy movement along the rope while still enabling you to have two free hands. With the Ropes Positioning Devices, pull them in motion to quickly lock your position when descending or ascending.
The benefits of vertical protection include safety, in addition to aesthetic considerations. The cable is a perfect solution for a permanent installation and is highly resistant to damage. This system can last longer without being affected by rot or mold, while Poly-Steel is resistant to water absorption and will not deteriorate when in contact with water.
Vertical safety protection ensures a reliable ladder appearance, a safe environment for the employee’s health, and a review of global regulations. According to OSHA standards, if the height exceeds 20 ft then, an appropriate cage must be used. There are exceptions that can take place when there is the danger of falling out or falling past landing areas. These include chimneys, towers, well cases. Ladders that are statistically used often should also consult vertical lifelines for safety measures.
Vertical lifelines offer the same protection while allowing a change in the height at which you are working. Besides, our systems can be adapted to virtually any climbing situation (e.g., ironworkers climbing to their area of work on the rebar frame of a pour-in-place concrete wall). When combined with anchoring systems, it may be preferred over screens and rails in these situations.
