Roof Horizontal Lifeline
CAI Safety specializes in OSHA-compliant roof horizontal lifeline systems. This fall protection system can be used for continuous fall restraint or fall arrest coverage around roof leading edges and openings.
A feature of our roof horizontal lifeline system includes a 100% pass-through which allows the user to walk uninterrupted over the entire span of a lifeline.
Fall Protection Challenge
When you need access to large sections of the roof to perform, maintenance, repair or inspections, a fall protection system is required per OSHA. A guardrail system may not be cost effective and multiple anchor points may be an inefficient way to move about your roof.
Fall Protection Solution
A horizontal lifeline fall protection system allows the user to access large spans of the roof in a safe and efficient manner. The pass-through feature of the horizontal lifeline means the user never has to disconnect from the fall protection system when navigating around anchors. The roof horizontal lifeline can be positioned to keep the user in fall arrest or restraint based on your access requirements.
Features & Benefits
CAI Fall protection experts have implemented Horizontal Lifelines for applications including the maintenance and inspection of the following: roofs, HVAC, skylights, solar panels, drains, gutters, security cameras, communication systems and many more!
100% CONTINUOUS FALL PROTECTION
One of the major benefits of a horizontal lifeline system is that a skilled designer will place the system in a manner that provides continuous fall protection from the roof access point such as a hatch or ladder to the parts of the roof requiring access such as HVAC equipment.
ROOF ATTACHMENT OPTIONS
The horizontal lifeline system will be designed to be supported from your roof structure. CAI fall protection systems have been installed on various roof types such as standing seam, composite, Membrane, Built-up, Concrete, Metal, and Wood Sheeting.
The horizontal lifeline is 316 stainless cable as well as most of the components to provide a long lifespan in outdoor environments.
OSHA & ANSI COMPLIANT
A qualified person will design the roof horizontal lifeline system that complies with the regulations and allows you to be productive. The qualified person is required to design your fall protection system as OSHA 29 CFR 1926.32(l) states.
CAI horizontal lifeline systems have a pass-through feature. This allows the user continuous uninterrupted access by means of a special machined trolley that safely transitions over intermediate anchors without having to disconnect from the fall protection system.
By using energy absorbing posts or installing in-line shock absorbers we reduce the forces of the fall on your roof to protect the structure and the user.
Besides the cable horizontal lifeline we can also provide a rigid track system that is preferred for its aesthetics, low profile and reduced fall clearance features.
Roof Connection Types
Aluminum clamps are designed to attach to the standing seam without making any roof penetrations.
COMPOSITE OVER CONCRETE
Installs into concrete decking roofs by penetrating with concrete bolts.
COMPOSITE OVER STEEL DECK
Anchors to built up or composite steel panel roofs with penetrating toggle bolts.
WOOD DECK BUILD UP
Installs on wood block built up roof types and penetrated with lag bolts to fasten the anchor to the roof.
WOOD BLOCK BUILD UP
Installs on wood deck built up roof types and penetrated with lag bolts to fasten the anchor to the roof.
TRAPEZOIDAL INSULATED PANEL
Designed to attach to metal sheathing or trapezoidal roofs with penetrating system fasteners.
