Don’t be swayed by static lines. There is a right and wrong.

While there are many advantages of static lines, they do come with a higher level of risk to other permanent height safety systems. Add a poor design or system layout – or a badly installed system – and your level of risk can go from high to unsafe very quickly. 

From bad positioning on your roof or nearby equipment creating dangerous hazards, to missing rivets or lines attached only to roof sheeting. There is a lot that can go wrong with static lines. Another height safety system may also be more suitable for your application, putting your worker and business at unnecessary levels of risk.

As height safety specialists, we’ve seen, designed and inspected it all. We can help you avoid the common pitfalls of static lines, from purchasing and installation. Ensuring your system is right from the start. Maximising your investment and increasing your level of safety and compliance.

What to consider when purchasing static lines?

To provide the highest level of safety, your static lines must have a well thought out design for their application. To minimise the risk of falling and the potentially lethal pendulum effect, your design needs to consider your plant and roof configuration. 

Static lines also come with additional training and compliance requirements to ensure recertification. To provide the highest level of safety, you also need to consider additional height safety systems and personal protection equipment that may be required for safe and compliant access.

Not sure what you need? We can assess and advise on your static lines, including a risk assessment to guide your system design. We can also test and inspect your static lines once installed, providing NATA-certified on-site testing and full defect reports.
