The lifeline is used for work at height, particularly on runways, overhead cranes or roofs. The lifeline allows users to work in complete safety and without constraint, it has an ergonomic system thanks to a certain comfort during interventions and prevents falls thanks to its safety indicator.
There are two types of lifelines: horizontal lifelines, equipped with two anchor points between which a cable or rope is stretched. The user attaches himself directly to this belay device. The tolerance of the lifeline can vary according to its slope. Vertical lifelines consist of an upper anchor point to which a flexible belay device is attached. The lower end can be held or left free as it does not contribute to the strength of the system. The user usually attaches to it by means of a device that travels freely along the flexible belay device.
