Horizontal lifeline system

03 January 2018

Steadfast, the working at height safety specialist, has supplied and installed its KeeLine lifeline solution to Pik-a-Pak to provide effective fall protection for employees who access to the roofs for maintenance and inspection work.

Located in Ipswich, Pik-a-Pak is a leading manufacturer and distributor of small domestic appliances and white goods, supplying a number of high-end consumer brands including Dualit, Bosch, Russell Hobbs, Panasonic, Samsung, Tefal and Vax. 

While the warehouse roofs already featured safe access systems, the client recognised the need for a more advanced system to facilitate the cleaning of the gutters. Warehouse manager Daniel Clapton contacted Steadfast to carry out a full site survey and recommend a suitable system. Steadfast suggested the installation of 200Lm of KeeLine, a horizontal lifeline system. With the work needing to be completed without any disruption to the daily running of Pik-a-Pak, Steadfast worked quickly, efficiently and safely to deliver this project on time, and with minimum disruption on site.  

Daniel Clapton said: “Overall, the whole project went very well. The KeeLine system that Steadfast has installed provides us with the assurance that anyone accessing the roof will be safe.” 

KeeLine is a wire-based horizontal lifeline system that has been designed to provide continuous fall arrest/ restraint protection. Fit for use in areas where guardrails are not suitable, the system allows maintenance/inspection teams to safely work on the roof and provides a virtually invisible solution. Installed as a permanent lifeline system, it offers uninterrupted access for up to three users across the whole roof, allowing them to freely move around the surface.
