Where collective protection such as guardrail is unsuitable or impractical, personal protection such as lifelines is a fantastic and effective alternative. Kee Line has been designed from the ground up to be a safe and discrete rooftop lifeline system, ensuring the safety of workers and your peace of mind.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a fall arrest system?
A fall arrest system is a working-at-height solution installed in the event of a fall to prevent impact on a surface. Compared to a fall restraint system containing a fall at height, a fall arrest system is a shock-absorbing personal protection system designed to prevent serious injuries or fatalities once a fall has occurred.
These safety lifelines are vital where working at height risk assessment has identified that work being carried out poses a significant risk of a fall: such as the side of a building or on a fragile roof.
When choosing a fall arrest system, it’s essential to consider the size, shape and strength of the structure you will be attaching it to, the position of the anchor point and the distance an operator will travel should they fall.
Does a safety lifeline absorb shocks?
Yes. A rooftop safety lifeline, like, Kee Line, is designed to absorb the shock in the event of a fall from height. Kee Line includes Progressive Absorbing System technology to arrest a fall and provide immediate safety on impact. The innovative brackets, posts and shock absorbers provide maximum personal protection, reducing the impact to below 10kn.
What is an example of a Rooftop lifeline System?
Rooftop lifeline Safety equipment combines fall arrest lanyards, safety harnesses and anchor points to ensure personal protection when working at height. Steadfast’s Kee Line offers to maximise safety whilst providing safe, flexible movement when working on the roof edge.
Kee Line is a wire-based rooftop lifeline system which allows hands-free work and free movement in both fall arrest and fall restraint. It has been designed to easily install alongside fall restraint systems maximising safety for all those working at height.
How long is the Kee Line fall arrest system?
Kee Line is designed to provide restriction-free movement, allowing for hands-free work when maintaining rooftops. The safety line is made of an 8mm grade 316 stainless steel wire, ensuring a total effective span of 12m between posts for up to 3 users at a time.
