Lifeline system supports three workers

Kee Safety® Inc. has introduced its improved KeeLine® horizontal lifeline system said to offer easier installation on bitumen membrane roofs and improved weather-resistance.

KeeLine is a wire-based permanent lifeline system designed to provide fall protection for up to three workers on rooftops where guardrails are not suitable. KeeLine's improvements include a redesigned post and baseplate, new toggle fixings, a slim-line corner design, stronger rivets and reduced-height intermediate posts. Spans of up to 50 feet between the new posts reportedly allow users to travel along the system without needing to detach at any time. KeeLine has a 5/16-inch stainless-steel wire that permits multiple fixing options and resists corrosion. In the event of a fall, KeeLine's in-line shock absorbers minimize loads applied to the building, reducing damage. KeeLine is said to comply with standards from the American National Standards Institute, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and Canadian Standards Association.
