>  Horizontal Systems - Permanent  >  Overview

​​​​​

Custom solutions designed the way you want!
You can always depend on 3M horizontal safety systems for mobility and fall protection when working at height. These systems are used to protect workers operating in the horizontal plane who may not have continuous access to suitable anchorage points. 

 
We offer the broadest selection, as well as significant advantages in safety and productivity and that’s why safety engineers and site directors choose our gear. A horizontal lifeline may appear to be a basic line strung between two anchors, but it is not. It is critical to choose a system that has been precision engineered and rigorously tested to meet industry standards.
Choose The Right Horizontal Systems - Permanent

When choosing a horizontal system, the type of application and protection needed is the first consideration. Specialized systems for roofing, facade access, transportation, wind and many others are available designed for maximum protection and performance. 

The location and environment whether indoors or outdoors will affect the type of system required​​.

Product Lines

  • Modular, lightweight design provides safe, cost-effective flexibility in system design including accommodating roof refurbishment and green roof projects Unique energy absorption reduces overturning movement on the fasteners by 50%, requiring fewer fasteners and reducing the number of roof penetrations to save time and money during installations​.


  • The only direct-to-roof rail system that can facilitate changes in direction and roof slopes, ensuring safe roof access where it is needed. Designed to safely facilitate roof inspections, routine maintenance, gutter cleaning, façade access, access to roof plant and any number of other roof top work procedures​.​

  • Provide maximum fall protection with this unique, permanent system for telescoping jet bridges. Allows telescoping jet bridges to expand and collapse with no need to remove or retention the system. Quality extruded aluminum rail system blends into structures and complements their aesthetics, virtually hidden and unnoticeable from the ground.​


  • ​Designed to work well on modern building projects, refurbishments and can also be used for a wide range of industrial safety applications. Durable, high-performing design ensures long life expectancy and low cost of ownership.​


  • ​Strong intermediate cable supports allow the system to span greater distances for long bay work areas and permit free passage of the attachment carriage. Designed to protect workers even with changes in weather, fragile roof elements, slips and trips, wind, steep inclines and slippery surfaces. Developed to meet the needs of transport and industrial customers including trucks, trains and aircraft, crane walkways and loading bays​.


  • ​Perfect for special projects, refurbishments and a wide range of industrial safety applications. Minimal moving parts and high grade materials ensure long life expectancy and low cost of ownership. System can be fitted to many types of structures and can also support multiple workers for both fall arrest and work restraint applications​.


  • ​The lifeline of this system is 12mm in diameter, it's heavy-duty and ideal for longer spans up to 100 ft.
