Söll Xenon 2.0 Horizontal Lifeline System

The Söll Xenon 2.0 Horizontal Lifeline System is an innovative height safety solution. It’s a high quality, durable system made of corrosion resistant stainless steel and is ideally suited to industrial applications like working on crane runways, loading bays and roofs.  The system also doubles as an anchorage point to easily rescue workers should they fall. If a fall occurs, this effective system ensures structural damage is prevented.  

HOW IT WORKS: 

State-of-the-Art Shock Absorbing 

The Lifeline System incorporates a unique, state-of-the-art shock absorber, which uses patented Miller ‘Force-dispersal Technology’ to provide fall protection for up to seven workers across a maximum span of 20m (1X19 cable, 8mm wide), depending on the line configuration.  The new Söll Xenon energy absorber functions as a four-in-one device: a tension indicator, a cable tensioner, an energy absorber and a fall indicator.  Only one energy absorber is necessary for all installations, irrespective of whether it’s an overhead or standard installation (on posts or against walls). Key Features:  Conforms to EN 795:2012 Type D standard  Guarantees structural integrity and protects up to seven workers  The new and unique multi-functional shock absorber prevents damage to a variety of structures  New overhead shuttle with improved sliding performance 

Fully Tested 

To prove how effective the Miller ‘Force-dispersal Technology’ would perform if up to seven workers fell consecutively the system was put through a ‘multiple fall’ test.  A test mass of 200kg (representing two workers) was initially dropped followed by five more masses weighing 100kg each (representing five workers).  To test for structural integrity, an extra 650kg was added to the load for three minutes.
