Frequently Asked Questions

Click on the questions to see the answers.

When is engineering required for HLL's?
Engineering requirements are typically set forth by Architects and Structural Engineers on a project by project basis. There are two main types of systems that fall protection companies provide: pre-engineered off-the-shelf kits and site specific systems. Site specific systems typically require a formal submittal process with the Owner, Architect and Structural Engineer. Pre-engineered kits, such as Guardian's Absorbinator system, have been designed and tested for a range of applications that pertain to most applications. Please contact a Simplified customer service representative for more information.
How does the Absorbinator attach to the anchor, and who is qualified to install it?
The Guardian Absorbinator kit comes with shackles, thimbles and cable clips which provide easy attachment to single point anchors and straight forward tensioning. Installation of the system can be performed by any Client per our manufacturer's instructions but they need to ensure that the system has been evaluated by an OSHA Competent person prior to use and that each employee using the system has been trained by a Competent Person.

What types of anchor points can accommodate HLL's?
Any anchor point that is designed to resist a 5,000 pound ultimate load is potentially sufficient for horizontal lifeline attachment. Other points of consideration are relative positioning of anchors, system compatibility with other components and temporary vs. permanent application.
How many people can the system support?
The number of people allowed on a system depends on whether the system is used in fall restraint or arrest and what fall clearance is available. Fall Restraint is defined as a system that prevents a worker free fall from occurring by physically impeding them from reaching the hazard. Fall Arrest is defined as a system that allows a worker to free fall before being arrested. All systems should be used in fall restraint whenever possible as falls can cause injury even when arrest equipment is used properly.

The Guardian Absorbinator system is designed for us with four workers in fall restraint and two workers in fall arrest. However, an OSHA Competent person should evaluate the fall clearance and lanyard connection equipment to determine if the horizontal lifeline system is safe to use.

Is the Absorbinator a permanent system?
The Guardian Absorbinator can be used for permanent or temporary applications, but product environment, frequency of use, and duration of service need to be considered. While the shock absorbing element of the system is stainless steel type 316; the attaching components and cable are made of galvanized steel. Galvanized steel components can be used for permanent applications but they can corrode quickly when used frequently or in extreme environments. As a result, we can supply stainless steel components for the entire system when requested.
What happens to the Absorbinator in the case of a fall, how can it be inspected?
All components of the Guardian Absorbinator system should be removed from service and destroyed in the event a fall has occurred on the system.
