What is it?

A type of fall protection system used to protect workers who are performing tasks at height on structures such as buildings, bridges, and towers. The system consists of a cable or series of cables that are secured to the structure and used to support a worker’s harness or lanyard.

The cable used in these systems is made from stainless steel or galvanized steel.  And is designed to withstand high loads and resist corrosion. Secured to the structure using specialized anchors or brackets.  That are designed to distribute the load across the structure and prevent damage.

Designed to allow workers to move freely along the length of the cable.  While remaining attached to the system at all times. The worker is attached to the cable using a lanyard or harness that is connected to the cable with a trolley or shuttle. The trolley or shuttle allows the worker to move along the cable while maintaining a secure connection to the system.


One of the key advantages of cable type fall protection systems is that they provide a high degree of flexibility and can be adapted to a wide range of structures and work environments. The systems can be designed to provide protection for multiple workers at once.  And can be used in a variety of industries, including construction, maintenance, and transportation.

However, it is important to note that the system requires proper installation.  And maintenance in order to ensure their effectiveness. Regular inspections are necessary to identify any damage or wear on the cables or hardware, and the system should be installed and used in accordance with applicable safety regulations and standards.

These systems are an effective and versatile means of protecting workers who perform tasks at height on structures. By using high-quality materials and adhering to proper installation and maintenance procedures, these systems can provide a high degree of safety and security for workers in a variety of industries.
