If you are trying to decide between a Horizontal Lifeline System on your roof versus a Non-penetrating Guardrail System, consider the following:

Non-penetrating Guardrails
Aluminum Fixed Mounted Guardrails
Horizontal Lifeline & Anchors
CAI Safety Roof Horizontal Lifeline Anchor
An Engineer must verify that your building structure can support the fall protection loads. REQUIRED REQUIRED
Roof penetration and sealing to accommodate anchors. REQUIRED REQUIRED
Installation by a certified installer of horizontal lifelines. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Training all employees who use the horizontal lifeline system. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Annual inspections required on all fall arrest systems (semi-annual if in California). NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED


Fixed mounted guardrail systems have many advantages over horizontal lifelines. There are exceptions and we will be glad to discuss them with you.
