Fall Protection & Fall Arrest Systems

KwikLine Fall Arrest System - Constant Force Post

The performance of fall protection and fall arrest systems are based on effective load control. A system must be able to withstand the force of a person(s) fall and absorb the energy generated.

The Icopal Solution

The Constant Force posts at the heart of the Icopal system are fixed to the roof deck giving more freedom for system location specific to the hazards. In the event of deployment, the load is absorbed by the entire system through a pre-tensioned stainless steel coil inside each post, there by reducing the impact load to both the person and the roof structure. The Constant Force post is omnidirectional further protecting the worker irrespective of the fall direction.

Traditional issues with fall protection systems

Previously it was necessary to attach the fall protection system anchors back to the building structure. As such, any resulting load would be dissipated through the structure. The system location was also restricted as this was determined by the position of the structural elements. System installation was time consuming, requiring a number of site visits to complete the overall solution. These installations also created issues with warranties, the overall roof integrity and cold bridging.

Choosing The Right Safety System

All roofs require safe access for general maintenance, plant servicing or renewal, or general inspection and therefore it is important to consider safe access to the roof, our roof safety and fall protection guide provides advice.
