Fall Protection Systems on Track at Eurotunnel

fall arrest systems being used at EurotunnelIn line with Eurotunnel's stringent safety policy, operatives carrying out routine maintenance and inspection of many roof areas at the UK terminal, Folkestone, have been equipped with the latest development in fall protection technology.

CSS Worksafe Ltd. have installed the new Uniline Horizontal Lifeline system which was recently launched on to the UK market. Unlike traditional systems, Uniline utilises a synthetic fibre cable instead of steel wire to provide a continuous anchorage point.

This system offers all the strength and durability of traditional systems but has the major advantage of being able to span up to 50m without intermediate support.

This unrivalled spanning capability greatly reduces the number of fixings required, speeding installation time and reducing the potential for leakage associated with roof penetration.

In the event of a fall arrest the unique operational properties of the Uniline system minimise the load experience by the user and provide a 'soft drop' eliminating dangerous bounce and swing.

Uniline cable is available in a range of colours to match building fabrics, and is supported by a range of non-penetrative support bracketry to suit the majority of profiled roofing systems.

The Eurotunnel contract was won in competitive tender and is one of a number of prestigious projects on which the Uniline system has been successfully specified.

CSS Worksafe Ltd. offer a full design and installation service for full protection and safe access solutions as well as training and hire of equipment.
