Fall Protection and Fall Arrest Safety

3M Fall Protection offer a wide range of Engineered Horizontal Systems, developed to provide a choice of solutions that allow our customers to most effectively resolve the risks associated with work at height in a broad range of applications.

The versatility of these products combined with 3M Fall Protection’s expertise in fall protection safety ensures we can solve even the most complex of height safety problems in industry, construction, façade access and for all manner of building maintenance and inspection tasks.

Our products have been proven in a wide range of applications, including roofing systems, transport, industrial maintenance, building and façade maintenance, construction, telecommunications, electricity, utilities and public sector buildings for inspection work.

We also undertake a wide range of special project work in areas such as leisure and tourist attractions, military infrastructure and heritage sites.

Horizontal lifeline systems sold in Europe are certified under the European standard BS EN 795 class C and D by independent notified bodies. Traditional horizontal systems are either flexible anchor lines made from stainless steel cable or rope, or rigid lines made from extruded rail.

HLL systems are typically installed by competent personnel who have been fully trained and authorised, with inspections every 12 months to ensure system integrity.
