The Uni 16™ fall protection system is best suited to specialist fall protection situations and to installation on older structures where connection to steelwork, brickwork or concrete is necessary and where a reduction in structural penetrations is desirable. The fall protection system is also very suitable for industrial safety applications and working at height.

In many circumstances, the product can span from 25 to 50m between support brackets. Uni 16™ offers excellent functionality through it’s free flowing bypass capability and can navigate corners and contours in building designs. Systems with corners will require shorter spans.

Minimal moving parts, the properties of the cable and high grade materials ensure long life expectancy, low cost of ownership and add up to a sound investment.

The fall protection system can be fitted to steel beams, concrete, brickwork and a variety of roof constructions using rigid anchors. The fall protection system can also support multiple workers for both fall arrest and fall restraint work applications. Detailed information to ensure safe system design and integration is provided by our comprehensive horizontal systems software programme.

The Uni 16™ Fall Protection System was the first permanent ‘engineered’ synthetic lifeline system to offer pass through components, corners and real user benefits, and at last count has seen installations of over 350,000 metres of systems.

The product continues to take pride of place in the 3M Fall Protection product range today and due to its unique properties solves some of the most demanding and complex fall protection problems in the world. To this day, it is still the only globally recognised permanent synthetic lifeline product and is unrivalled in the fall protection industry for its unique benefits.
