Safety Line Systems
Granada Cranes and Handling has for many years been a leading service provider regarding Health and Safety practices within the overhead crane industry. As part of our commitment to offering our customers a comprehensive and innovative service we ensure that we are regularly informed of both changes to and the introduction of new regulations for which we are constantly investigating cost effective solutions. These solutions have ranged from the introduction of work permits and risk assessments to platform and Lifeline systems. After much research and from experience we believe that the best system available for these requirements is the Travsafe® lifeline system from Tractel and we are proud to have been supplying and installing their equipment for almost 10 years. We have subsequently become an agent for the sale of Tractel height safety products and are listed as an approved installer of their safety lines with our engineers having been trained and qualified to both install and maintain their systems.
Travsafe Horizontal Lifeline System
The Travsafe horizontal lifeline system allows complete freedom of movement for working at height, ensuring safety whilst traversing horizontally over any given distance. The twin cable system offers three main benefits.
- Less deflection in the event of a fall than a traditional single cable system providing the customer with increased safety. Due to its new Dual Material absorber rings, the travsafe™ lifeline dissipates the stresses generated in the cable during a fall.
- Allows the intermediate brackets to be fixed much further apart, which means fewer fixing points and consequently, less penetration of the roof fabric. It ensures perfect slider movement which effortlessly crosses without manual intervention the intermediary cable support posts located at a maximum of every 15m.
- Smoother running of the traveller as it is permanently in line with the bracket. Located on the ground or a supporting post, the travsafe™ lifeline enables its user to move to each side without changing the slider position. The travsafe™ lifeline can be used by up to 5 people and it can be installed under a ceiling, on a wall or on the ground
Travesafe® is very simple to use. The user attaches the connector of their harness lanyard to a traveller, which runs smoothly along the system and around angles and corners. Travsafe can be installed in most orientations, floor, wall and ceiling mounted at head or a higher level so can be suitable for almost any application.
The travsafe™ lifeline is an ANCHORING DEVICE EQUIPPED WITH HORIZONTAL FLEXIBLE BELAYING SUPPORTS THAT COMPLY WITH THE EN 795-C STANDARD and is designed to meet the requirements of CDM regulations and other safety legislation such as HSG33.
In addition to supplying and installing Tractel’s Travsafe safety line system Granada also supply, install and maintain the FABA permanent vertical access system, for use with vertical access ladders and a range of temporary safety lines, harnesses and accessories (all as used by our own engineers).
