DBI Sala Horizontal Lifeline Systems

A horizontal lifeline may appear to be a basic line strung between two anchors, but it is not. It is critical to choose a system that has been precision engineered and rigorously tested to meet OSHA and ANSI requirements. These systems are used to protect workers operating in the horizontal plane who may not have continuous access to suitable anchorage points. Some important considerations when selecting a system include.

Purpose-Built For:

  • ANCHORAGE STRUCTURE - The structure your system must attach to, such as an I-beam, rebar stud, concrete column or roof, can dictate the type of specialized system required.
  • PORTABLE OR PERMANENT - Temporary jobs require lightweight and easy-to-use portable systems that can be moved from one location to another. If a hazardous work area is accessed often, such as a rooftop, a permanent solution like evolution, may be a better choice.
  • CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS - The distance between the work area and the next level or obstruction is often called "fall clearance", and this is a critical factor when choosing your system. Anchorage height, type of lifeline and length are just a couple of factors that will affect the required clearance needed.
  • LIFELINE TYPE - Synthetic lines are extremely lightweight and compact while galvanized or stainless steel options offer added corrosion and abrasion resistance.
  • NUMBER OF USERS - Always consider the number of workers required to get the job done and choose a system that can accommodate those personnel safely.
