DBI-SALA Horizontal Lifeline

DBI-SALA Evolution Horizontal Lifeline System

DBI-SALA's Evolution Horizontal Lifeline System is a permanent, low tension, multi-span lifeline used for fall protection on elevated horizontal surfaces. It can be used for work on roofs or overhead cranes, operations in aircraft hangars, bridge maintenance or loading docks, railcars, arena-rigging, warehouse distribution, etc. Easily installed, the system is particularly flexible for companies seeking fall protection requiring little modification to the structures into which the lifeline is incorporated. Like most flexible systems, the Evolution can turn corners and be engineered for most any application. It is a little more sensitive to damage than other systems. If any components require maintenance or replacement in the future, the customer has to bear the cost of cable replacement because the cable must be cut. When anchored to the building, the Evolution offers great freedom of movement to personnel working at a height. This system is ideal for every structure. It favors movements along the line, protects workers efficiently from falls from height and is discreet by blending into the building without ever compromising aesthetics. All the components of the Evolution are manufactured under the quality control system ISO 9001 and undergo stringent inspection. This fully engineered system will allow up to five users to traverse from one extremity to another in a truly hands-free environment. This system is easily installed and particularly flexible for companies seeking the protection of their workplaces without any damage to the buildings or the structures into which the lifeline has to be incorporated. A specially designed computer program simulates the necessary clearances and possible fall heights. This design software validates the compatibility of the structures with the lifelines no matter how complex. Stainless steel components reduce premature weakening from corrosion and maintain the strength and durability for longevity of the system. The system shuttle provides hands-free bypass of the intermediates and maximum freedom of movement, allowing the users to attach or detach from the lifeline at any point along the system. The intermediate bracket can be installed in many different configurations (on the ground, at various heights on the wall, etc.) and at regular intervals, to ensure the optimum distribution of forces along the lifeline. It is shaped specifically so as to allow the automatic passage of the shuttle without the user ever having to disconnect from the lifeline. The corner bracket's patented flexible cable guide design allows for any possible curve to be forged to follow the user's movement as closely as possible. The Linear Energy Absorption Product (LEAP) is a 4-in-1 system that includes an in-line shock absorber, system tensioner, tensioning indicator and impact indictor. A series of engineered roof stanchions that can be used for most corrugated steel, wood and built-up roofs for added system flexibility are also available. This system meets or exceeds all applicable industry standards including OSHA and ANSI. For product details and ordering, call Gravitec's Engineering Department at 1.800.755.8455.
