The T-Line Safety System represents the next evolution in fall protection systems. The T-Line not only provides greater levels of safety and freedom for the user but it also offers a comprehensive height safety solution through facilitating horizontal and vertical movement of the user, in combination with the in-built user retrieval mechanism.
The T-Line Safety System features two separate retractable lifelines that are housed in a single unit. The Main Lifeline extends from the T-Line Unit to the connection for the users harness. The second lifeline that is known as the Pulley Lifeline runs horizontally out to the pulley unit, then down to the connection for the user’s harness. These two lifelines form an effective loop of safety line to provide protection from a fall event. When the user moves horizontally on their work platform, this loop of safety line rotates to facilitate. When the user moves vertically downward, this loop expands. The locking mechanism within the T-Line unit is extremely sensitive to any expansion of this loop of safety line. Therefore, should the user fall, the locking mechanism will react quickly and arrest the fall within a very short distance. The locking mechanism however is not sensitive to horizontal movement (rotation of the loop of safety line), therefore the user can move freely along their platform without restriction from the T-Line.
The T-Line Safety System can be used wherever traditional fall protection systems are used, such as in Construction, Mining, Maintenance, Transport, Aerospace and Telecommunications environments. The T-Line can also now offer protection to users in situations that were not previously catered for, such as work around overheard obstructions (pipelines, steelwork, services, gantry cranes etc) and areas that require extremely small fall arrest distances over large spans, including on flat bed trailers and the like.
