We live and work in an internet age where almost everything can be found online with the click of a mouse. We can search the internet for answers to the most vexing problems, and more importantly, we can buy just about anything, including fall protection systems. Although it may be tempting to buy a horizontal lifeline kit online, there are compelling reasons to think twice before placing a temporary HLL into your shopping cart.
Diversified Fall Protection recently installed a horizontal lifeline system (also known as an HLL or HLL system) on a flat standing seam roof for a State Highway Patrol facility in Columbus, Ohio. Periodic inspection and maintenance of rooftop HVAC equipment and communication towers create potential fall hazards for building maintenance staff and contractors working during wet, windy, snowy, and icy conditions.
