Reliance Fall Protection


Industries began operations in the
year 2001 by patenting a
revolutionary new
technology for the design
of horizontal
systems that
allowed the reduction
of fall height requirements
loadings. These Tuned
Cable™ horizontal lifelines are one of those
“it can’t be done” innovations that
suddenly seem simple once you understand
how they work. The lifelines were followed
by unique anchorages, the concrete embed
system with remote connection, beam
clamps and trolleys, and other engineered

Reliance Fall Protection

Reliance has developed several truly innovative fall protection concepts that
have helped establish higher standards for Fall Protection. Among them are :


T.E.S.T.S. :
ool &

Tool Lanyards can accommodate tools weighing up to 50 lbs (22.6kg) for added safety

Available in a variety of load capacities

almost any hand tool can be fitted

Anchor loop available for tools with built
in anchor slot for quick application

Field installable anchors available for tools that will not accommodate lanyard spring hooks

Multiple anchor rings can be installed on one tool for added safety

Patent Pending anchor banding and fasteners available in bulk quantities for large tool rooms

This unique system provides the ultimate in protection for dropped
tool hazards. Shock absorbing lanyards are
attached to tools via a proprietary anchoring system. Dropped tools cease to be a hazard to persons or
equipment below, and costly damage to dropped tools and equipment is eliminated.

Reliance Horizontal Lifeline Systems

Road & Bridge

Reliance offers a variety of engineered horizontal lifeline systems that are specifically
designed to address the fall protection hazards associated with the construction and
maintenance of roadways and bridges. These systems use components that were
developed to meet the standard requirements of road and bridge work environments, and
have been thoroughly field tested on actual jobsites.

Reliance Horizontal Lifeline Systems for Road and Bridge work share a common horizontal
lifeline system, but use different anchor, stanchion, and other elements specific to the
environment in which they are installed.

Standard Road & Bridge Systems :

• Looped Rebar

• Nelson Stud

• Structural Steel for Bridge Beams

• Pour
Place Concrete Insert

Reliance Fall Protection

Reliance Horizontal Lifeline Systems

Structural Steel

Structural steel systems are designed for installation on existing structures. Utilizing off the
shelf components, most all structures can be accommodated. System height is 5, 6, or 7’
(1.5, 1.8, 2.1m) above the walking surface or can be configured to hang from above.

System stabilization is maintained with tie
back cables or strong back struts when
stanchions are utilized. On structures (
) where clamping on the top flange of I

beams is not feasible, under slung clamps may be used.

Construction projects utilizing concrete foundations are among the most common in
building sites. Concrete construction projects present a unique set of challenges for fall
protection and horizontal lifeline setup and use. Reliance has extensive experience in this
area, and offers a variety of systems and solutions for concrete construction projects.

Reliance has invested a great deal in engineering and Research and Development geared
towards meeting the needs of our customers. Currently, Reliance offers several off
shelf systems which effectively address most concrete construction applications. Since each
project has unique challenges, custom

fabrication of brackets and structural

interfaces are available upon request.

Specialty & Custom

With our large selection of off the shelf components, most any structure may be fitted with
a permanent or temporary Reliance horizontal lifeline. With the ability to ‘tune’ our lifeline
systems, Reliance can accommodate clearance and span geometries that our competitors
have difficulty with.

Systems can be custom
built for non
standard applications. Our experience ensures that we
can develop a solution for your specific needs.

Horizontal Lifelines

Q & A

Q : What is a Horizontal Lifeline ?

A :
It is a flexible line between two anchor points that provides a safe means for

workers to horizontally traverse an elevated work area.

Q : Why do I need one ?

A :
If workers are exposed to fall hazards that cannot be addressed with

passive fall protection systems (guardrails, nets, etc.), and a high degree of

mobility is necessary to perform the work.

Q : Where are Horizontal Lifelines suitable or beneficial over traditional fixed
anchor points?

A :
In areas where workers need to move freely back and forth between two

points while remaining connected to a personal fall arrest system.

Reliance Fall Protection

Horizontal Lifelines

Q & A

Q : What are the OSHA regulations for Horizontal Lifelines ?

A :
OSHA 1926.502(d)(8) : ‘Criteria for Personal Fall Arrest Systems’ :

The free
fall distance is limited to 6 feet. The deceleration distance must not
exceed 42 inches; lifeline elongation is not included in deceleration distance; and
the total fall distance is unregulated except that the employee cannot make
contact with a lower level’.

Q : What does this mean ?

A :
It means that if you are working at height and you fall, your fall must be
completely arrested before you hit something on a lower level (this may may or
may not be the ground). The distance that you fall before before your Personal
Fall Arrest System (PFAS) begins to arrest your fall cannot exceed 6 feet. The
distance between activation of the PFAS and total fall arrest cannot exceed 42
inches (in most cases).

Reliance Fall Protection

Horizontal Lifelines

Q & A

Q : What if there’s no HLL or anchor overhead, and I have to tie off by my feet ?

A :
This will potentially double your free
fall distance, or increase it to an average
of about 10 feet. Per OSHA 1926.502(d)(16)(iii),
this would only be allowed
where an employer cannot provide a more suitable anchorage or other form of
fall protection. In a situation where limiting the free fall to 6 feet is infeasible,

employer would be required to limit the free fall to the extent possible and to
ensure that the arresting force would not exceed 1,800 pounds (see

Q : Won’t I need special equipment in a case like that ?

A :
Yes. Reliance developed the
™ lanyard for these situations. It is
designed to regulate arresting force depending on the circumstances of a fall.
™ will arrest falls in both “Force Level 1” (6’ free
fall) and “Force
Level 2” (12’ free fall) conditions; in either case, arresting force is limited to well
under 1,800 lbs.

Reliance Fall Protection

Q : What if there’s a someone else’s Horizontal Lifeline System in place already
? Can I use a Reliance harness and lanyard to attach (or vice
versa) ?

A :
In most cases, yes. The issue here is typically not with the harness, but with
the connectors used to attach to the lifeline. In most cases, standard connectors
(snaphooks, carabiners, etc.) at the end of a lanyard or lifeline are compatible.
Connectors should allow components to fit together properly, and there should
be no chance of accidental disconnection.

Q : Can we just string up a cable between two structures and connect to that ?

A :
No. A Horizontal Lifeline is an engineered system, and a variety of factors
must be considered during its design and construction. Among these are the
anticipated load on end points, the number of system users required, the total
lifeline length desired, proper cable tensioning, minimum required clearance of
lifeline above working surface, and the types of deceleration devices used. ALL of
these are critical factors in designing a Horizontal Lifeline System.

Horizontal Lifelines

Q & A

Reliance Fall Protection

Q : How am I supposed to calculate all of that of that information ?

A :
Through use of the Reliance ‘Horizontal Lifeline Wizard’ on the Reliance
website at
. Anticipated lifeline tension and minimum required
clearance beneath the walking surface are determined
by entering the
following five items :

• Number of system users required

• Total lifeline length

• Number of intermediate supports

• Type of deceleration device used

• Elevation of lifeline above walking surface

Since the calculations are almost instant, many design combinations may be
viewed to obtain the best design for protection of the affected
). The
program will automatically invalidate the system if it is not viable based on the
entries. When a viable system is configured, the user can generate a bill of
material based on the components required for the system designed.
