Horizontal Lifeline Systems EN 795 Type C

Horizontal Lifeline System (Over head, Over roof, Side Wall)

A horizontal lifeline ( HLL) is a flexible line rigged in a horizontal plane secured at each end to an anchorage providing an effective fall protection solution for work requiring horizontal mobility along elevated surfaces.

Horizontal Lifeline Single Span & Multi span

HLLs can also be classified as either single span or multi-span. The simplest type of HLL is a single span. Having only two anchorage points, single span HLLs are limited to a straight line.
Multi-span HLL systems are not limited in length since they are supported at intermediate anchorages.
UNICARE’s sophisticated type of multi-span HLL uses a specially designed intermediate bracket that retains the cable, but allows a special connector to pass over the bracket keeping the worker connected at all times.
