Lifelines For Roofs

XS Lifeline

Safety Above All

If guardrails are not a feasible option for your project: our lifeline systems offer absolute safety. With a horizontal lifeline system, a user wears a harness that is connected to permanent steel cable track that runs through multiple anchor points fixed in the roof.

Our horizontal lifelines were developed and tested according to the highest international safety standards. With LinkedPro, our multi-cable lifeline solution, users can safely pass each other in an unsafe zone without having to disconnect from the lifeline.

Simplicity Defines Quality

Our systems are designed to make fall protection easier for everyone involved: users, clients and suppliers. We offer a complete range of solutions for a durable lifeline track on roofs with slopes up to 15 degrees. But every building is different and every project has different requirements.

Recognizing this, we offer a modular range of fall protection solutions that covers almost any roof surface, with just three base plates. Different components can be combined to create a suitable and cost-effective lifeline solution, based on a project’s requirements and the desired specifications.

Our Base Plates

Absorbtion

The forces that are released in case of a fall may cause damage to the roof, at the points where the lifeline in anchored. Depending on the type of roof surface, it may be necessary to install components that absorb these forces, such as XSDynamic or XSBending kit.

Anchor points can be equipped with an XSBending kit pro: a mechanism that bends in the direction of the fall. With XSBending kit pro, fewer anchor points are needed to achieve the desired performance.

For more fragile structures or longer lifeline routes, XSDynamic can absorb even greater forces.

Using A Lifeline

The amount of user knowledge required to safely use a horizontal lifeline depends on the layout of the lifeline on the roof.

A lifeline track that follows the contours of the roof (at fixed distance from the edge) requires limited user knowledge. This way, those responsible for the safety of the system (or the safety of people working on the roof) are less reliant on workers using the system correctly.

But if the distance between the lifeline and the roof edge varies, then a user needs to  adjust the length of his lanyard, which requires significant user knowledge and entails a greater risk of misuse.
