US Fall Protection’s reputation as the world leader in safety at heights is founded on a unique understanding of the forces (loads) imparted on a fall arrest system in the event of a fall and the requirements of the system to arrest the fall.
The capacity of a system depends on the strength of the structure, supports, components and cable. US Fall Protection systems commonly incorporate the unique US Fall Protection Constant Force Technology, which absorbs the loads generated in fall arrest. In the event of a fall, the integral energy absorbing coil of the Constant Force Post is deployed, a single post alone being able to absorb up to 6000 J of energy – enough for three people. This technology allows the system to be applied to a relatively delicate structure without the need to fix to structural steel or purlins.
US Fall Protection's horizontal and inclined fall arrest and fall restraint systems can be deployed across virtually all the major roof types including standing-seam, composite, built-up-on-site, secret-fix and membrane. Attaching the Constant Force post does not damage the integrity of the roof and therefore will not compromise the roof warranty.
- Equally advantageous for rooftop applications is the freestanding Constant Force post, which is ideal for one-off repair or maintenance tasks.
- In conjunction with a ManSafe fall protection system, a designated walkway system should be specified. US Fall Protection's WalkSafe walkway provides a level anti-slip surface, marking a designated route for workers to follow. WalkSafe can be affixed to all major roof types including standing-seam, composite, built-up-on-site, secret-fix and membrane and does not damage the integrity of the roof or compromise the warranty.
- Where fragile roofs and rooflights are seen to be a key hazard, US Fall Protection's WalkSafe fall proof covers provide the ideal collective protection solution where untrained staff needs to access the roof. It is recognized that one of the biggest causes of accidents for those working at height is the lack protection on fragile roofs and roof lights.

- In situations where roof access is regularly required by numerous people, VersiRail provides the ideal collective fall protection solution. VersiRail is available in a range of styles and finishes, in both fixed and freestanding options.
