DBI-SALA - Innovative Evolution Lifeline

Supplier: Capital Safety

System Blends Entirely With Environment Without Sacrificing Workers’ Safety


DBI-SALA has announced the launch of a new generation in horizontal lifeline – The Evolution System. Evolution delivers complete hands-free movement along the line, efficiently protecting workers from falls, and is discreet, blending into the building structures without ever compromising aesthetics.
The Evolution horizontal lifeline is comprised of a cable that serves as a connection point, intermediate components supporting the cable, end modules with energy absorbers, and post type interface parts.  DBI-SALA has developed a varied and extended range of curves, intermediate and end brackets, enabling the lifeline to be installed on any type of structure while accurately following the contours of the building.

Parameters like the number of people, the distance between intermediate brackets, the forces and the sag of the cable are unequalled by any other current horizontal lifeline.  Evolution is equipped with a shuttle that can be switched to enable the user to work both sides of the line and also allows movement along the lifeline without the need to disconnect and passes the intermediate points without obstruction.

“In addition to its feeling for sustainable architecture, Evolution conforms to the highest safety standards”, says Greg Peterson, Systems Manager for Capital Safety in Australia and New Zealand. “The system was designed to comply with international safety standards, making Evolution suitable for installation in any country.  Installation is only ever carried out by professional installers who have been approved and trained specifically for lifeline installation work”.

Design software that simulates the necessary clearances and possible heights of falls has been developed specifically for Evolution, validating the compatibility of structures with the Evolution lifelines, no matter how complex.
