Adjoining Lines - This permanent RoofSafe fall arrest horizontal lifeline system enables contractors to remain attached, while accessing all roof areas, in Southampton, Hampshire. The baseplates are carefully sealed to the membrane to ensure a water-tight finish is given.

Unlike some fall restraint systems, the 3M RoofSafe system reduces the need for multiple posts when ajoining systems meet. A cost-effective option for contractors with tight budgets.

Surrey Mansafe Roofsafe fall arrest protection safety line post system with toggle fixings

Single Ply Membrane (SPM) - This RoofSafe corner assembly fall protection roof post anchor system is secured using toggle-fixings, which is a current method used to firmly secure the baseplate to SPM's to avoid roof leaks.

The posts are yet to be weathered to the roof.

We are 3M certified horizontal rigid class D installers.

Roofsafe Fall Protection Rail Aluminium Restraint System

Cost-Effective Rigid Horizontal Lifeline Systems - The horizontal rigid aluminium RoofSafe rail system provides the necessary restraint to avoid falling off the roof, but allows sufficient access to all roof areas. Secured with seam clamps, the non-penetrating system has minimal affect on the roof.

From the ground there is minimal visual impact, making it an excellent option for architectural purposes, over against the more common post and wire systems. Particularly cost-effective for short systems.

What Is A Lifeline System?

To ensure the safety of all personnel working at height on flat or pitched roofs, fall prevention equipment may need to be installed for properties in the UK.

A lifeline system is a fall protection cable-based system which users attach to using a harness and lanyard. They are commonly found in two locations - on building roofs, and to the underside of roofs when working on fall-risk zones (e.g. trucks, tanks and machinery).

An approved cable-based fall arrest system, such as 3M RoofSafe, 8mm lifeline or Uniline system, or Latchways Mansafe system, can be a critical component to making work at height safe, keeping users firmly attached to a system. (Many of our customers use the term 'mansafe' when they are actually referring to the roof fall arrest and fall restraint lifeline systems, however 'ManSafe' is a brand name of Latchways' lifeline system).

Horizontal lifeline systems are not always the most appropriate, and collective protection systems such as guardrail systems can be more suitable. Each system has it's own benefits, so ensure you take sound advice before any system is installed to your roof.

  1. Proactive - We liaise with roofing companies and agree on the sealing method to ensure it is compatible with our product and provides an water-tight seal. Our site engineers collaborate with other site sub-contractors to remove potential interfacing issues and remove the issues for our clients'.

Quality wins - and that's exactly what you will receive from us.

Fall Protection Systems We Install

If you're looking at safety lifeline system there are numerous types and they all vary in design, functionality and their appropriatenenss, so it's worth finding out from a specialist which system will work best. They include Roofsafe, Uni-8, Uni-8 overhead, Cabloc Pro, ManSafe, Roof Angel, Soter, Keeline and more. If you want to send us your enquiry email safety@stqvantage.co.uk.

If you are looking for a bespoke solution then feel free to get touch. Our team consists of highly creative, design-orientated construction-minded personnel who will happily work through your needs.


3 common fall protection system options:

1) Horizontal Lifeline Systems - these are installed on most roof systems, and these horizontal lifeline systems can span up to 12m (40ft) between energy-absorbing anchors, ensuring continuous hands-free roof access for all fall arrest system users.

An incredibly versatile height safety system, these multi-directional cable-based roof safety rescue lines support both fall arrest and fall restraint systems and are engineered by STQ to suit a variety of different roof contours and working practices.

There are also the rigid horizontal lifeline systems. The benefit of the rigid systems is there is no deflection (unlike the safety wire systems), and are specially useful where the fall risk area is close to where the user needs to access.

We insist on all systems we install pass the EN795:2012 test to fully comply with current regulations.

This photo displays the horizontal 3M RoofSafe lifeline system which is effectively colour matched to the roof to reduce the visual impact. With the baseplate clamped to the roof seams no penetrations are made through the roof, avoiding any possibility of roof leaks.

2) Safety Eyebolts - these are used where the user needs to work only within an area of close proximity, and are often a lower-cost option.

3) Mobile Man Anchors - (also known as deadweight anchors) these mobile systems are excellent where a fall protection safety wire system is required, but due to different applications the system will need to be relocated to various areas around the roof. The versatile Roof Weight Angel Anchor.
