KeeLine® The Safety Solution for Horizontal Life Lines
KEELINE horizontal life line system is a flexible, cost effective option for the continual protection of those working at height.The KEELINE horizontal lifeline system provides flexible, continuous protection for up to three users working at height. The system delivers safe access to any area of a roof by allowing workers to be permanently attached to the line at all times and be able to freely move around the roof area. With 5/16 inch Grade 316 stainless steel wire, KEELINE spans up to 50 feet between posts. Inline shock absorbers minimize loads applied to the building in event of a fall. The design has been configured and tested for use on a variety of roof types e.g.
standing seam, membrane or metal profile. KEELINE is available for mounting directly to concrete, steel, or masonry in either horizontal or overhead applications. KEELINE has been independently tested to ensure it conforms to appropriate OSHA/ANSI standards as well as the requirements of CSA 13-04 & 16-04.
KeeLine® for Roofs
The Modular nature of KEELINE incorporates a post and base plate for use on all modern roof types. This new design allows for easier specification as well as simple and fast installation.
KeeLine® for Structures
Stainless steel brackets for fitting to directly to structures, including concrete, steel, stonework or brickwork either horizontally or overhead.
For fixing directly to structures where the system is best suited above the user. Incorporates permanently attached wheeled travellers that smoothly pass intermediate support brackets at spans up to 78' (24m)
KeeLine® for Postanka
Stainless steel components c/w M12 fixings for use with our own POSTANKA range of fabricated posts or for use with any suitable engineered fabricated post.
When there is a preference not to penetrate the roof at all, KeeLine® can be used in conjunction with the WIREANKA product line of counterweight anchors for permanent or temporary applications.
KEELINE conforms to ANSI Z359.1 2007, OSHA1910.66, 1926.502, CSA Z259, EN795 Class C and AS/NZS1891.2 and is CE marked to the European PPE directive.
The KeeLine® system is offered with either mechanically swaged end terminations, which require the use of a swaging machine or Swageless fittings that can be fitted using standard wrenches.

KEELINE for Roofs combines the stainless steel life line system with steel roof anchor assemblies.
The design of the roof anchors in conjunction with the efficient in-line shock absorbers mean that the system can be top fixed to many modern roof constructions including trapezoidal metal profile roofs, both built up and composite, standing seam roofs and membrane roofs.
KEELINE for Roofs has been designed and certified as a complete system.
To simplify specification only two base plate types are required dependant on the roof type.
To minimise damage to the roof surface and to provide a safe, slip resistant level walking surface KEELINE for Roofs can be used in conjunction with KEE WALK.
Quick to Install
Metal roof base plates have multiple fixing centres to suit a wide range of roof profiles.
To fix to metal profile roofs, high strength rivets and sealing strip allows the anchors to be fitted with minimal penetration whilst maintaining the roofs integrity.
Standing seam roofs require no penetration whatsoever utilising the patented S5 clamp.
Membrane roof base plates allow KEELINE for Roofs anchors to be top fixed to suitable metal or concrete deck roofs.
The fixing holes are recessed so the fastener head sits flush with the base plate.
It is quickly waterproofed using a ‘patch’ of the original roof membrane, the upright post remains uncovered to aid easy inspection and to minimise damage to the membrane in the event of a fall and so stop water ingress
KEELINE for Structures provides the Horizontal Lifeline components to allow
mounting directly to concrete, steel, brick or stonework either in the horizontal or overhead application using suitable 1/2" (M12) high tensile stainless steel fixings.
5/16" (8mm) dia Horizontal life line system for fixing directly to suitable Steel, Concrete, Brick or Stone structures
Efficient in-line shock absorber limits end loads to less than 2248lbs (10 kN)
Corner and intermediates bracket options allows system to follow structures shape
Up to 49' (15m) spans between supports
Removable Traveller easily passes corners and intermediate brackets for continuous protection and enables users to detach or re-attach at any point of the system
Conforms with appropriate OSHA/ANSI standards
Idependantly tested to the requirements of CSA 13-04 & 16-04,
EN795 Class C, CE Marked.
KEELINE Overhead provides personal protection for up to two users, used when it is beneficial to have the life line system mounted directly above the user for tasks including overhead crane access, vehicle loading, machine & building maintenance, cleaning and access.
Gr. 316 Stainless steel 5/16” (8mm) dia. wire and electro-polished components are used to ensure a low maintenance, durable solution.
The permanently attached two wheeled traveller smoothly passes the intermediate brackets even when the user is attached to a paid out length of a Self Retracting Life Line.
The system can be configured to allow single or multiple spans of up to 78' (24m) and the efficient patented KEELINE absorber minimises the end loads back to the supporting structure to below 2248lb (10kN).
KEELINE Overhead has been tested in conjunction with the Xcalibre ANSI compliant Self Retracting Lifelines (Fall Arrest Blocks), rated for users up to 300lb (136kg), that lock off in the event of a fall to minimise forces to an acceptable level.
