Working from a great height can be a risky business, with the potential of taking a terrifying tumble an ever-present danger.

As such, knowing that your life is in safe hands is a vital part of the role, with a lack of precaution being a deadly consequence. Luckily, there are a variety of safety solutions to help keep you protected whilst working at height.

Safe, sound and secure, our variety of safety lines are specifically designed with safety in mind to leave you feeling stress-free, allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

 horizontal safety line systems

What are horizontal safety lines?

In a nutshell, horizontal safety lines (aka horizontal lifelines) are wire-based horizontal fall protection for those that work at height. When other supports are not suitable for the task at hand, horizontal safety line systems can be a literal life-saver.

Particularly useful for those that work on rooftops, these lifelines – permanently attached to the surface for the duration of the job – allow the worker to move hands-free and unobstructed without the risk of falling to the ground below.

 

Fall Restraint Systems vs Fall Arrest Systems

Horizontal safety lines typically offer duel fall protection in the form of “fall restraint” and “fall arrest”. While those terms may, on the surface, seem interchangeable, both offer two distinctly different forms of security.

As such, it’s vitally important to know the difference between the two and each phrase is well worth becoming acquainted with.

Fall Restraint Protection

Fall Restraint Systems limit the user’s range of movement to within a set perimeter, essentially preventing you from reaching the point of a potential fall hazard. For example, if the edge of a building is 2 metres away from the safety line, a fall restraint may only allow you to explore up to 1.5 metres away from the safety line, effectively “restraining” you from access to the hazardous edge.

Fall Arrest Protection

Unlike the preventative measures of a Fall Restraint System, Fall Arrest Systems act as a reactive safety net after a fall occurs. If access to an edge is a necessary part of a job, workers will naturally need a greater range of movement, so the length of lanyard provided will be greater than the distance to the edge. The “arrest” occurs if a fall takes place, prematurely halting the fall and preventing contact with the ground below.

 

What horizontal safety lines are available?

When it comes to fall protection, we offer two primary options in terms of permanent horizontal safety line systems: namely the PRIM and the MONOLINE.

Each uniquely different yet both equally strong, these effective horizontal lifeline systems offer secure support for high-risk workers, whether they’re walking the rooftop high-wire or working high above a factory floor.

 

PRIM Horizontal Safety Line System

As major roofing manufacturers develop profiles of lighter weight and insulation of greater thickness, it’s important to approach these structures with safety equipment that doesn’t compromise structural integrity or user safety.

The PRIM Horizontal Safety Line System provides ample protection for up to two people working at height. Capable of being used as a fall arrest system or fall restraint system, this safety line consists of an 8mm stainless steel cable, which is then fastened to dynamic load control anchor posts which are in-turn installed to the finished roof surface.

Each anchor post is equipped with an integral load controlling element. The load control element is specially designed to reduce the loadings subjected to the roof during a fall situation. This not only reduces possible damage to the roof surface during a fall but also reduces the impact loadings through the complete safety line ensuring no overloading is possible. The worker can connect their lanyard to the safety line via a specially designed travelling device that provides the worker with uninterrupted, hands-free movement along the cable, while also maintaining continual protection. Alternatively, the anchor's posts can be installed as a single point anchors conforming to EN795:2012 for localised maintenance tasks.

In addition to the cable itself, all other components of the horizontal Safety Line System are made of either stainless steel or aluminium. Additionally, this horizontal lifeline system also complies with the EN 795 (2012) type C standard and CEN/TS 16415:2012 for anchor devices designed to be used by more than one person simultaneously. 

 

MONOLINE Overhead Safety Line System

The MONOLINE Overhead Safety Line System is also a horizontal safety line designed for multi-person use at height, providing fall protection within a manual working environment.

Made from 8mm 7x7 stainless steel cable and stainless-steel components, this system has an advantage over other fall-arrest equipment due to its adaptability to a range of jobs, particularly indoors. It can be installed horizontally to a vertical structure (such as a wall) or to an overhead horizontal structure (such as a beam or ceiling).

However, it’s worth noting that, before fastening to a fixture, structural durability checks must be carried out by trained and competent personnel. Meanwhile, the assembly process itself must also be handled by an individual of suitable knowledge and experience.

Similarly, after installation, the system should be checked and certified by Safety LiftinGear.com or one of our authorised agents. These checks should be carried out at least annually to ensure their continued safe usage.

Please note that this support system is designed to be used with the MONOLINE 2-Wheeled Travelling Trolley for personal use and shouldn’t be used for suspending or transporting goods. Meanwhile, additional personal protective wear should also be worn by the MONOLINE user.

Ronan Keating once said, “the touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall”. The bright sparks at AirDeck took that line to heart and have since successfully applied it to the construction industry.

While we can’t promise the gentle hand touching of Mr Keating – nor would our legal department recommend such actions – we can promise the catching part, with the awesome power of the AirDeck Fall Arrest Landing Bag.

 fall arrest bags

AirDeck Fall Arrest Bags

Available for purchase, the AirDeck landing bag is the inflatable safety deck the world has been waiting for. Quick deployment, simple transportation and easily compactible, the AirDeck is the perfect safety deck for anyone that works at height.

The bags rise to approximately 75cm in height once fully inflated and are capable of withstanding falls from as high 3.25 metres above floor level (over 10.5 feet).

 

Durable and Portable

Each AirDeck bag is made up of an inflatable inner lining and an outer polypropylene bag. Better still, the double-layered upper face is extremely hard-wearing and resistant against accidental damage, with durability a key feature.

One of the best things about AirDeck fall arrest bags is their portability. When deflated, up to 50 bags will fit on just one pallet, making them ideal for easy transportation and storage. Meanwhile, once they are completely inflated and ready for use, 50 bags will cover a surface area of up to 80 square metres.

When used in conjunction with the Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Blower, inflation can be completed extremely quickly, with a single bag fully inflated in less than 40 seconds. In times of emergency, inflation speed can be of critical importance, making the AirDeck’s rapid expansion an invaluable feature.

 

Multiple Uses

While the AirDeck fall arrest is most commonly used in the UK construction industry, it’s not solely restricted to construction use. In fact, it’s not even restricted to the UK and has already been successfully used internationally as well as domestically, with customers as far wide as North America, Australia and the Far East.

In addition to its primary usage within construction environments, the AirDeck fall arrest system has also been used in a variety of unusual scenarios, including vessels at sea and by air force maintenance staff.

 

Lifesaving Equipment

For outside the box usage of the AirDeck, look no further than the Los Angeles Country Sheriff’s Department. The local correctional facility is one of the world’s largest jail complexes, housing 3500 inmates with mental illnesses.

As a result of the large-scale environment and the mentally volatile inhabitants, suicide attempts aren’t uncommon. Thankfully, the AirDeck’s rapid deployment provides the perfect solution to these potentially fatal scenarios and has already proved successful on multiple occasions.

Word coming out of Scotland this week is that the Fixator hoist has a big fan…quite literally!

Our eco-friendly pals up in bonnie Scotland were in need of a helping hand to remove a blade from one of their massive wind turbines on the Glasgow moors.

Luckily, SafetyLiftinGear was more than up for the task at hand, enlisting the aid of the mighty Fixator Electric Wire Hoist from our equally mighty Glasgow depot.

The Fan-tastic Fixator Hoist

Extremely capable and reliable under duress, our Fixator hoist was able to cut to the chase and efficiently remove the chosen blade safely and without issue.

Best of all, the customer’s decision to opt for the Fixator hoist over other brands proved that eco-friendly doesn’t always mean expensive. In fact, the turbine project proved that you can actually save money while you save the planet!

The perfect alternative to the more established industry go-to of the Minifor, the Fixator has all the credentials for a variety of heavy-lifting jobs.

The Fixator model is also considerably less expensive than similar products offered by rival brands (in many cases, as much as 40% cheaper). Better yet, it offers equal or better attributes for that bargain price.

Benefits of the Fixator Hoist

Boasting superior lifting power of 500kg and faster operational speed of 8m/min, the Fixator hoist offers remote control lifting power at the touch of a button. Meanwhile, the motor has fail-safe primary brakes and is protected by a thermal fuse for added safety.

The maximum lifting weight can even be doubled with the use of a reeving kit, allowing for a potential WLL of up to 1000kg. That’s the equivalent of two grand pianos (or two particularly plump polar bears)!

So, whether you’re lifting pianos, polar bears or wind turbines, the Fixator remote controlled wire hoist is definitely up for the task.

 

This project proved, once again, that our Fixator hoist is a breath of fresh air, more than capable of keeping up with the competition at a fraction of the price.

So, why not go with the flow? Throw caution to the wind and try something new with this fantastic lifting hoist from SafetyLiftinGear!

Ready? Let’s roll!

appliance skates

What are appliance skates?

While “appliance dolly” may be a well-known term, “appliance skates” is arguably a little less celebrated outside of manual labour circles.

In short, “appliance skates” simply refers to a specific kind of appliance dolly, namely those that resemble a giant roller skate.

This skating lingo also translates to other forms of moving equipment, with similar skating terms applied to related products, such as the wheel-less push/pull “ski slider”.

If you really want to get your skates on with a moving job, appliance skates provide a quick and easy solution to any moving job. Just don’t expect to perform a double axel with a fridge freezer in toe.

 

Heavy-duty appliance skates

For a wide range of purposes, big or small, our appliance dolly collection covers a whole array of jobs, ranging from 100kg plastic appliance skates for lighter loads, all the way up to our 600kg wooden appliance dolly for heavy-duty moving.

To put that in context, 100kg is about the weight of a beer keg while, on the other end of the scale, 600kg is about the weight of a cow. So, whether you planning on moving a beer, bovine or anything in between, we have the dolly for you!

 

Low-cost lifting gear for appliances

Available in both plastic and wood form, our various moving dollies are not only safe and suitable for a range of jobs, they’re also extremely cost-effective. Even our large appliance skates are very affordable, taking the strain off your wallet as well as your back.

Many of our dollies also come equipped with anti-slip mats for additional stability, greater grip and enhanced protection. Meanwhile, we also have a range of sizes to suit the task at hand. We even offer appliance skates with a foldable handle for easier load movement and manoeuvrability.

What’s more, in addition to traditional rectangular dollies, we also have round dollies and triangular dollies on offer as well. So, the next time you need to move a giant Toblerone or gargantuan tub of Pringles, keep us in mind!

 

Heavy lifting gear dolly skates

For larger appliances, our 5pc Heavy Duty Appliance Furniture Moving Set is the perfect solution.

Complete with a hoist handle for easy elevation, the four dolly skates can be easily placed under each corner of the item you need to move, allowing for hassle-free lifting and shifting from start to finish.

Perfect for kitchen appliances, lounge furniture or heavy boxes, these lifting skates are a versatile, one-stop solution to a myriad of moving conundrums.

Best of all, they also skate around the problem of dimensions, allowing you to easily move a range of sizeable items, regardless of their dimensions.

 

Useful appliance skates in the home

While it’s easy to assume that appliance dollies are predominantly for businesses and those in a trade involving heavy goods, they can also be a really useful item to have around the home.

Our 150kg Home Furniture Appliance Trolley in particular is a prime example of just that. Ideal for a whole range of homely goods, this product can be a real life-saver in any number of situations: from decorating a bedroom to a garage clear out.

Weighing in at just 0.5kg (500g), this dolly skate is actually lighter than a basketball, but don’t let its modest mass fool you – our lightweight lifter packs a surprisingly serious punch.

This diminutive dolly is capable of moving 300 times its own weight, with a maximum capacity of 150kg – that’s the equivalent to the average weight of a panda!

While it’s unlikely you’ll need to move a Chinese bear around your home, this appliance dolly can also be used for a whole host of more conventional household items, such as furniture or boxes of books.

Nevertheless, it’s comforting to know its panda-proof, should the situation arise...

 

Regardless of your moving job, an appliance dolly can be a godsend. So, remember, we’ve got your back – literally!
