Horizontal Lifelines

Gemtor Horizontal Lifeline Systems are engineered to provide a temporary OSHA-compliant anchorage point when no overhead anchorage exists or when a worker needs the ability to move across a horizontal surface while tied off. When used in conjunction with an approved full-body harness and lanyard, the complete system has the ability to arrest a worker’s fall and limit the forces transmitted to the worker and the system’s anchor points. Many system configurations are available to accommodate work site and environmental conditions.
Temporary Horizontal Lifeline System with Stanchions

HL3 Series - Horizontal Lifeline System

Single and Multi-Span

Gemtor’s single/multi span horizontal lifeline system is the perfect choice for worker safety during bridge and building construction. Designed for quick and easy mounting to structural I Beams, this complete kit includes everything you need to protect your workers while performing their tasks at heights. Each two (2) stanchion system can be used on a span of up to 60 feet. Intermediate stanchions and Add-On systems can be deployed to create a system of unlimited length.

Large mounting bolts that provide more surface area contact are located on the top side of the stanchion base make attachment to a beam safer and easier than competitive systems. The stanchions feature an adjustable U shaped clamp and safety chain system that wraps around the opposite top flange of the beam providing additional security. The chain is attached to a bolt that has a long handled nut for ease of tightening.

The stanchions are extremely strong yet lightweight. They attach to the beam in a manner that minimally impacts the space required for the body of a worker to pass by.

The Unitensioner®
The patented Unitensioner® device is the heart of Gemtor’s Temporary or Permanent Horizontal Lifeline Systems and takes the guesswork out of setting up a horizontal lifeline. The Unitensioner® is easy to use and performs the following functions:
Allows the user to tighten/stretch the lifeline, helps maintain desired tension by preventing over-tightening, and effectively limits fall arrest forces on the worker and the anchor points without the use of an energy absorbing lanyard.

Complete Temporary Systems - For use where vertical columns capable of supporting at least 5,000 lbs. are available. An anchor sling is attached to a vertical support at each end, and the lifeline is tensioned between them. If the span exceeds 60', intermediate supports must be used at intervals of 60' or less. Maximum span 300'.  Please note that systems can be configured using Fixed Beam Anchors (i.e. VBA-121), Anchor D-rings (i.e. AD-2), or other types of anchorage connectors.
