Vertical Lifeline System

Category: FALL PROTECTION, Vertical Lifeline System

Product Information

The user moves up and down the entire height of the line rather than having to disconnect and find a new tie-off point on the tower or ladder. Users connect to the lifeline by a “rope grab” deceleration device that travels along with the user. EN:353-1:2012

Components

End Brackets —Top and Bottom
Energy Absorber
Swageless Termination
Rope Grab Fall Arrester
Stainless Steel Cable
Tensioner


End Bracket
The end bracket is fitted to the substructure, e.g. by attaching two clamps to the rungs of the ladder or in the case of concrete cladding by using concrete dowels.


Energy Absorber
Energy absorbers built into the system protect the end anchors from excessive loads should a fall from the system occur.


Swageless Termination
Swageless Termination provides strong end connections to the wire rope & completely eliminates the danger of any loose wire ropes which may cause injury to the user working on the line.


Vertical Lifeline Rope Grab Fall Arrester
The vertical lifeline Rope Grab Fall Arrester glides along the guiding cable — locking in the case of a fall. A special technical design allows the Rope Grab Fall Arrester to run freely alongside the user as he/she climbs up or down.


Intermediate Bracket
The intermediate bracket is attached, for example, to the rung of a ladder using a clamp. The guiding cable is led through a clamp.


Guiding Cable
The 8 mm guiding cable is of stainless steel. This is attached to Swageless termination and the tensioning element at the end brackets.


End Tensioner
The end tensioning element is installed at the lower end of the vertical lifeline system, acting on the one hand as a Swageless termination and on the other as a tensioner for tightening the cable and for counteracting any cable stretch which may occur as a result of temperature changes.
