Roof Lifelines

Safety Above All

In a situation were by guardrails are not feasible for your project, we offer another option of our XSPlatforms lifeline systems that offer absolute Safety. A user using our horizontal lifeline system, wears a harness that is connected to permanent steel cable track that runs through multiple anchor points fixed in the roof.

Our XSPlatforms horizontal lifelines were developed and tested according to the highest international safety standards. With our LinkedPro multiple cable lifeline solution, workers can safely pass each other without having to disconnect from the lifeline in a unsafe zone.

Simplicity Defines Quality

Our XSPlatforms systems are well designed to make working at heights easier for our clients, users and suppliers. With roof slopes up to 15 degrees, we offer a modular range of fall protection solutions.

We offer a modular range of fall protection solutions that covers almost any roof surfaces. Based on project’s requirements, a cost effective lifeline solution can created by combining different components.

Our XSPlatforms Base Plate

XSPltforms XBase Plate

XBase plate is our solution for concrete roofs, plywood roofs, or trapezoidal steel roofs with insulation. With the XSBase plate, just one anchor is needed to create a secure anchor point.

XSPlatforms XSMD

XSMD  is our solution for trapezoidal steel roofs without insulation. It can be used for different rib distances. Needing just 8 to 12 drilling holes, XSMD is incredibly strong and quick to install.

XSPlatforms XTrusion

XTrusion is our solution for roofs with a trapezoidal or standing seam profile. This base comes with special clamps and is installed close to the surface, giving it great tensile strength.

Absorption

The forces that are released in the case of a fall may cause damage to the roof, at the points where the lifeline in anchored. Depending on the type of roof surface, it may be necessary to install components that absorb these forces, such as XSDynamic or XSBending kit.

Anchor points can be equipped with an XSBending kit pro: a mechanism that bends in the direction of the fall. With XSBending kit pro, fewer anchor points are needed to achieve the desired performance.

For more fragile structures or longer lifeline routes, XSDynamic can absorb even greater forces.

Using A Lifeline

The amount of user knowledge required to safely use a horizontal lifeline depends on the layout of the lifeline on the roof.

A lifeline track that follows the contours of the roof requires limited user knowledge. This way those responsible for the safety of the system (or safety of working on the roof) are less reliant on workers using the system correctly.

But if the distance between the lifeline and roof edge varies, then a user needs to adjust the length of his lanyard, which requires significant user knowledge and entails a greater risk of misuse.

Our XSPlatforms Lifelines

XSPlatforms LinkedPro

Our XSPlatform LinkedPro System can be used by a maximum of three workers different lifelines . It consists of three separate lifelines, thus workers can pass each other without disconnecting from the lifelines.

XSPlatforms XSLinked

Our XSPlatforms XSLinked System is a single cable horizontal lifeline solution. Thus users in order to pass each other will require to disconnect from the single cable horizontal lifeline.
