FALL PROTECTION SYSTEMS


We offer different safety solutions, ranging from systems that offer maximum usability to simple systems that cover all the bases, but require a little more user know-how. We believe that the choice for the right fall protection solution should be simple.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOLUTION


The right solution for your project depends on the desired risk reduction and freedom of movement, the number of users and the level of user knowledge. We have outlined 5 different types of systems on this page.

  • Suitable for virtually any type of flat roof.
  • Some user knowledge required.
  • Lifeline anchors can be no more than 8 m (26 ft) apart.

LIFELINE WITH ANTI-PENDULUM ANCHORS ★★★


This solution consists of a horizontal lifeline in the middle of the roof and anti-pendulum anchors at the corners. This results in a smaller safe zone, requires more user knowledge and offers less freedom of movement. The distance from the lifeline to the roof edge is always the same.

Features of this system:

  • Suitable for virtually any type of flat roof, up to 16 m (52 ft) wide.
  • Advanced user knowledge required.
  • Length of the lanyard needs to be adjusted.
