The Benefits of Horizontal Safety Line Systems

Horizontal safety lines minimise the consequences of falls from height. This is an affordable, suitable solution should working at height be unavoidable and guarding not achievable.

The horizontal fall protection system is typically designed for 2/3 users at any one time and requires more advanced training on working at height and PPE. Fall arrest systems will require suitable rescue plans and rescue training.

We work with a range of leading MSA Latchways equipment, such as MSA Latchways Mansafe Constant Force Horizontal Lifelines, to provide the highest standard of safety to suit your needs.

Versatile & Hands Free Horizontal Safety Lines

The horizontal safety line systems can be fixed to virtually all types of roofs and structures, providing a discrete and aesthetically pleasing solution where collective measures are not suitable.

Horizontal safety line systems offer continuous hands free access for all aspects of roof inspection and maintenance. It is required by law that this system is inspected and certified every 12 months as a minimum along with any associated PPE equipment. Similar to the horizontal safety line set up, Altus Safety also offers horizontal lifeline systems, that work with a track mechanism.
