DESCRIPTION: The US-96760 Lifeline System is designed for use as an anchoring means for up to 4 persons, used where fall protection and horizontal mobility are required. Per OSHA regulations, horizontal lifelines shall be designed, installed, and used under the supervision of a qualified person as part of a complete personal fall arrest system with a minimum safety factor of 2. Qualified person is defined as follows:
“..one who, by possession of a recognized degree, certificate, or professional standing, or who by extensive knowledge, training, and experience, has successfully demonstrated his ability to solve or resolve problems relating to the subject matter, the work, or the project.”
Refer to applicable national standards, including ANSI Z359.1, local, state and federal (OSHA 1910.66 & 1626.502) requirements, for additional information on personal fall arrest systems.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: The US-96760 Lifeline System is designed for use with only ULTRA-SAFE approved components and sub systems. Substitutions or replacements made with non-approved components or subsystems may jeopardize compatibility of equipment and may affect the safety and reliability of the complete system.
Anchorage points for this system must be capable of sustaining a static load in the direction applied by the personal fall arrest system of at least 5,000 lbs. Anchorages must be rigid enough to prevent large deformations.
- Maximum of 240′ system span with maximum 60′ intermediate span. Span must be reduced if fall distance is inadequate to prevent striking of lower floor.
- Maximum of 4 users (max 310# each) at any point along system.
