Partner: AllRisk valbeveiliging
Country: The Netherlands
More and more (primary) schools in the Netherlands see that safety at school isn’t limited to the schoolyard. Roof safety for employees (and maintenance personnel) has also become an important focal point, especially since more new-build schools are being equipped with, for example, skylights and solar panels.
For the Jeugd Zorg Onderwijs Centrum (JZOC), a center for specialized education, AllRisk installed a safety solution consisting of a total of 4 XSLinked lifeline systems (at two heights) and 4 XSGlobe anti-pendulum anchor points.
3 of the 4 systems (a total of 319 meters (1046 ft) of steel cable) are mounted on XSImpact supports, which means that a shock absorber is integrated in each anchor point. This helps to reduce the forces on the roof construction in the event of a fall. Due to the short span distance of the last system (about 9 meters (29 ft)) the installation of one XSDynamic shock absorber for this lifeline was sufficient. The XSDynamic also protects the roof construction, by absorbing forces in the event of a fall.
