We provide a range of leading fall protection systems that are designed to appeal to all parties who come into contact with working at height applications, including safety installer companies, roofing contractors, architects, designers, building owners & building contractors.
Leading Fall Protection Systems
We work with leading Fall Protection System providers to facilitate safe working access to roofs where guardrails are not suitable or simply not the preferred solution.
Combining top of the range, patented products with our design skills, we're able to offer the very best lifeline solution for your project, from survey to installation and maintenance, every time.
Restraint systems are our default system of choice. A typical restraint system is set 2.3m back from the roof perimeter or any open edge or potential fall.
The user’s path is dictated and there is no risk of a fall. Minimal PPE and user training are required, making this an ideal solution for most projects.
A fall arrest system requires more input from a design point of view; this should always be backed up with published calculations applicable to the roof substrate type.
The operative's height (A), lanyard length (B), shock absorber (C) and minimum safety margin (D) must be taken into account.
Other factors such as building height and fall clearances require due consideration too. This type of system requires specialist PPE, user training and a rescue plan to be in place as there is potential for a fall with this system type.
Our Fall Protection systems come complete with a calculation package that allows for calculations to be made to give end loadings, system deflections and other detailed information assisting the system designer to propose a system that is fit for purpose.
This calculation package can be used on shock-absorbing posts, and components with in-line shock absorbers for systems fitted to rigid/fabricated posts, walls, and rigid structures.=
Our systems are sourced from the very best manufacturers using innovative design and unique features.
The Horizontal Lifeline Systems we use have been developed to allow users' uninterrupted or controlled access to many different roofing applications.
Alternatively, they can be installed as a single point anchor for centralised maintenance tasks within a specific area of interest. As major roofing manufacturers develop profiles of lighter weight and insulation of greater thickness, the systems we use have been designed to complement these advances without compromising structural integrity or user safety.
A Unique, Patented Design
The Soter high-load post we use is a unique, patented design that embodies many technological advances in Fall Protection. At the heart of each post is an energy-absorbing element and deformable member that holds the post module perpendicular to its base plate.
The post has been designed as a detachable module from the base plate, both having separate waterproof sealing barriers, so if the post is removed the base will not leak.
In the event of a fall, the forces involved will cause the deformable member, designed to resist static loading, to release the absorbing element reducing the forces back to the roof and critically saving the user(s).
In extreme cases, corrosion of safety line systems can cause loss of the integrity of the system as a whole. The effects of hidden corrosion are even more worrying. Often this will only become apparent when needed the most, in a fall situation.
It is a common belief that the various protective surface coatings available offer sufficient corrosion resistance, but these only offer temporary protection.
All of our system components, including internal absorbing elements of the post, use a combination of both 304 and 316 stainless steel giving peace of mind to the end-user or building owner that our installed systems will have a lifespan equal to or beyond the building life.
You can rest assured that our in-house experts will take care of your roof safety requirements from start to finish, achieving the safest compliant and affordable system possible.
