Miller Techline temporary horizontal lifeline system. System includes all necessary hardware for two workers. This type of system is often used where overhead anchorage is not present. This system comes in a waterproof 5 gal (19 L) bucket for safe storage which makes it quick and easy to install, lightweight and portable.
Miller product code : HLLR2-Z7.
Meets ANSI A10.32-2004, OSHA 1926.502 and CSA standards.
System available in 60 ft. Please allow 1 to 4 weeks for delivery.
The line is a static Kernmantle rope with a 11/16 in (17.5mm) diameter used to span between two anchorage connectors. The strong nylon core is covered with polyester which allow it to withstand a force of 12 000 lb (53 kN). Kernmantle rope is also extremely abrasion resistant and has a low elongation.
The tensioner (lifeline adjuster) allows one to adjust the tension of the rope and resists to a force of 5000 lb (22 kN). It is made of zinc plated stainless steel to resist better to corrosion.
The system includes two polyester heavy-duty cross-arm anchorage straps of 3 in (76 mm) in width which can withstand a force of 5000 lb (22 kN). One must avoid to install them around sharp edges.
The energy absorber must be installed between an anchorage strap and the tensioner. When a fall occurs, it will limit the forces exerted upon the worker to 2500 lb (11 kN).
When one is free falling, the lifeline will sustain transverse forces which will deflect the rope. The energy absorber will then deploy, but de deflection distance will depend on the length of the rope. This si why it must be included when calculating the fall clearance. Please consult the manufacturer’s manual for more information.
It features two carabiners made of steel that require a double-locking action for a throat opening of ¾ in (19 mm). Meets the standard ANSI Z359.1-2007 SO therefore, can support a force of 3600 lb (16kN) without any distortion.
Both workers are hooked to the horizontal lifeline by an O-ring. This zinc plated forged steel O-rings can withstand a force of 5000 lb (22 kN) each and still ease worker mobility. Thickness : ¼ in (6 mm), diameter : 2 in (50 mm).
About the anchor point:
This system should be installed so that the workers are located under or along the line. This way, the fall distance is minimalize thus making the installation more secure. The rope and the cross-arm anchorage straps must not depend on the work surface. Moreover, the rope must be installed no higher than the height of the dorsal D-Ring of the harness. One must especially not tie up to lifeline together to increase the length.
One should be aware of the potential risk of falling. Is there a sufficient and obstacle free distance below the worker? Are there emergency measures to get him down on the ground quickly? Can the anchor point withstand a force of 5000 lb? For more information, consult the manufacturer's manual.
The worker is responsible for visually inspecting his fall protection equipment before each use. During this routine inspection, the worker must note any signs of degradation, malfunction, or breakage. The lanyard will have to be replaced if any such signs are detected.
On top of this routine inspection, the lifeline system must be inspected by a qualified person different than the worker. The frequency of these inspections varies according to the manufacturer. Some manufacturers require an inspection every 90 days, others every 180 days, or even yearly.
The recommended lifetime of a lifeline is 5 years. While some manufacturers keep silent on this topic, in practice, if the lifeline is used regularly and stored and maintained in standard conditions, its lifetime will not exceed 5 years in most cases.
Sylprotec offers a fall protection equipment inspection service. Find out more by clicking on the Services tab, under the Sylprotec logo at the top of the page. Certification and inspection labels provided at one of the lifeline’s end.
Any equipment that has withstood a fall or an impact must be scrapped.
For cleaning, use a gentle soap or detergent and lukewarm water (37°C). Do not use bleach, chlorine, or other abrasive or chemical products. If your harness is too dirty or contaminated, it is time to replace it.
Air dry without using heat in a clean environment. You can accelerate the drying process by wiping the wet lanyard with a clean absorbent wipe, or by using a fan. Avoid exposure to sunlight and to any sources of contamination.
