A new, wire-based horizontal life-line system is launched this month by working-at-height safety specialist, Kee Safety. Designed as a flexible, cost-effective and continuous fall protection solution, the KeeLine® system is ideal for use by working teams carrying out essential rooftop maintenance tasks.
KeeLine® comprises an 8mm Gr.316 stainless-steel wire, electro-polished brackets, detachable travellers and powder coated anchors which can be assembled to create spans of up to 15m for simultaneous use by up to three users. The system also incorporates an Inline Shock Absorber. This ensures that KeeLine® can be installed on a wide variety of lightweight, modern roof constructions whilst minimising the load to an acceptable level. The systems unique see-through top fix posts require minimal roof penetration and eliminate the need for expensive fall-over posts at every support.
A range of KeeLine® fixing options provides maximum versatility. The system can be installed on most modern roof types or where fixing to the main roof structure is required, KeeLine® is compatible with our existing Postanka® anchors. If no roof penetration is desired, then KeeLine® can be used with the Kee Safety Wireanka® range of deadweight anchors for a safe temporary or permanent solution. A KeeLine® for Structures option is also available to allow mounting directly to concrete, steel, brick or stonework either in a horizontal or overhead application.
KeeLine® is straightforward to specify using bespoke calculation software. CE approved, it conforms fully to EN795 Class C, OSHA 1915.159, 1926.502M, ANSI Z359.1 2007 and AS/NZS 1891.2.
