Meets Requirements of:
Attachment versatility ensures easy installation for wall, floor and overhead applications.
The patented energy absorbing technology provides predictable linear, high capacity performance.
Linear Access Solutions include rail and lifeline systems. These provide safe lateral movement for multiple workers in harnesses, platforms, cages, or bosun chairs. Here are some of the key differences between rails and lifelines:
Lifeline systems are cables attached to engineered anchor points. This allows users to connect to the cable and move freely alongside or under it.
- Best for high fall-clearance situations
- Can be vertical or horizontal systems
- Can be designed for travel restraint or fall arrest
Rail systems have an anchor point above the user, which moves along a rail, and can support individual fall systems, powered platforms, cages, or bosun chairs.
- Best for low fall-clearance situations
- Offered in Monorail, Unirail, or Roofsafe rail systems
- Can be color-matched to rooftops or soffits
- Connect to metal roofs without penetration
Both rail systems and lifelines provide hands-free movement for workers.
These systems are specifically designed to accommodate building layout and the worker access requirements. They provide a solution to safely reach difficult access points such as atriums, roof overhangs, cornices, facade step-backs, interior walls, and unique or protruding architecture. Architectural monorail systems OSHA-compliant are secure and user-friendly for workers.
OVERHEAD TRACK SYSTEM
There are numerous overhead track systems available to meet site and use requirements for plain track, dual track with bypass, bridge, and fold-away systems. All systems allow for maximum mobility and combine the use of advanced fall arrest systems for enhanced safety. These systems are designed to safely accommodate multiple workers and are the product of choice in low fall clearance applications.
OVERHEAD LIFELINE SYSTEM
Weathertite™ Systems can be installed in less than ten minutes per base and are waterproofed at roof-height, featuring integrated, manufacturer-approved flashing.
HORIZONTAL LIFELINE SYSTEMS
Horizontal Lifeline Systems can be designed and used as a travel restraint or a fall arrest system, but with the attractive feature of being able to travel across the roof while tied off without having to reconnect. Either system can be engineered for single or multiple workers. Energy absorbing components are integral and critical elements of a horizontal lifeline system. They ensure that the loads created during a fall arrest event are manageable and not catastrophic.
ROOFSAFE RAIL SYSTEMS
This is an aluminum rail system designed for all types of metal roofs. These systems can accomodate multiple simultaneous users and provide a non-penetrating option on standing seam and trapezoidal roof profiles. Rigid rail systems have several advantages over horizontal lifeline systems, including evenly distributed loads instead of concentrated loading in a fall arrest event. These systems can also be color-matched to the roof panels.
LADDER SAFETY SYSTEMS
The FlexiGuard™ A-Frame System provides a secure anchor point on a portable structure to give workers increased coverage and protection. Depending on the configuration, this system has the capacity to provide fall protection for up to two workers and can be easily moved from job site to job site, providing safe and reliable fall protection where you need it. These systems are ANSI and OSHA compliant. DBI-SALA® has created a proven process for developing unique solutions. Whether it’s an existing or modified product, or an entirely new design, FlexiGuard™ always meets the requirements of your specific application.
Each custom solution is driven by our customers’ needs and is dependent on the industry, environment and specific design constraints, including government standards. We also have numerous pre-engineered systems that may be a perfect solution to your fall protection challenge.
All of our systems are extremely durable and built to last with world-class quality, materials and workmanship. They are unique solutions to unique challenges, and fall protection you can trust.
