Spider, a division of SafeWorks LLC, has revamped its SpiderLine lifeline system for workers on bridges, building construction, rooftops and other elevated surfaces.

The SpiderLine Temporary Horizontal Lifeline System, which has a maximum length of 300 feet, provides safe, reliable and proven fall protection, the company says.


The SpiderLine system includes several new features, including a low-profile chain to eliminate trip hazards, the company says.

Easy to install and engineered to fit multiple applications at height, the new system improves workers’ safety and productivity while meeting fall protection requirements mandated by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Canadian Standards Association, Spider says.

Upgraded Features

Spider says the improved SpiderLine design boasts several new features, including the following.

  • Standard pass-through stanchions allow the freedom to move without having to unhook the lanyard;
  • A wide clamp option that connects to beams up to 36 inches wide with 3 3/8 in. flange thickness;
  • A 12.5 degree vertical angle that allows an open walkway for workers;
  • A low-profile chain, to eliminate trip hazards; and
  • A modular stanchion post, to make the system more affordable.

“We listened to our customers’ needs and improved the SpiderLine features accordingly,” said John Sotiroff, vice president of sales and distribution.

SpiderLine is available for purchase from the Seattle-based company’s 25 operation centers located throughout the Americas.
