Information
  • Always install the Scaf-Line® pole on the strongest scaffold components as shown in the illustrations.
  • Maximum of 1 worker per anchor line.
  • Poles are available in either 1 or 2 line configurations to allow for up to 2 workers per pole.
Direct Setup

  1. Install the Scaf-Line® pole above the worker.
  2. Connect the harness lanyard DIRECTLY to the anchor line.
  3. Use either a 4 foot shock absorbing lanyard (SAL) or a self retracting lanyard (SRL).
  4. The SRL is the preferred lanyard type as it does not allow an injurious free-fall to occur.
Indirect Setup

Allows a worker to be secured at any elevation within the tower

1. Suspend a vertical lifeline from the Scaf-Line® anchor line.

2. Loosely secure the lower end of the lifeline to facilitate upward travel of the rope grab.

3. Connect the harness lanyard to a rope grab that is in turn connected to the vertical lifeline.

4. Always position the rope grab above the harness D-ring in order to minimize the free-fall distance.

5. Maximum of 1 worker per vertical lifeline.

6. Acceptable lanyard types: Use either a 4 foot shock absorbing lanyard (SAL) or a self retracting lanyard (SRL).

7. The SRL is the preferred lanyard type as it does not allow an injurious free-fall to occur.

 

In the event of a fall Scaf-Line® will:

  • Maintain the structural integrity of the scaffold 
  • Absorb energy by means of the flex in the pole & the worker’s SAL or SRL lanyard 
  • Disperse energy over the scaffold structure 
  • Reduce the pendulum effect since the lanyard hook always travels freely along the anchor line 

 

  • Maximum of 1 worker per line
  • Type 1 Connectors will fit scaffold pipes from 1.6” – 2” OD
  • Various pole lengths & connectors are available for other scaffold types

Rotating Anchors

“SSFI members have become aware of the increased use of scaffolds as fall arrest anchorages. This practice is a matter of concern for SSFI members because scaffold systems and components were not designed or manufactured specifically to withstand fall arrest forces. Very few scaffold components will meet the federal OSHA requirement of 5,000 pounds for a personal fall arrest system anchorage.”
