A horizontal lifeline system is made up of a cable or rail that spans a potential fall hazard, usually attached to the structure at set intervals. The worker then attaches themselves to the cable with a harness and lanyard. Horizontal lifeline systems are an extremely versatile means of providing protection when working at heights, and can even curve around corners! They can be attached at foot level when working on a top level surface like a roof, or can be attached overhead when working in places like airline hangars and bus depots.
Levitt-Safety carries horizontal lifeline systems from top manufacturers like 3M/DBI Sala and MSA.
