Vertical Life Lines
What is a Vertical Life Line or VLL?
A vertical life line or VLL and cable grab is fall protection and fall arrest system that is designed to allow work‐ ers to access vertical work areas such as ladders, on vessels, towers, buildings, stacks and tanks. VLL are tensioned cables that mount to a ladder or the structure. These systems are ideal for outdoor locations where use is less frequent. For frequent use areas, a device such as a Self Retracting Life line may be more convenient.
Why are Life Lines important?
VLL are ideal in outdoor areas where they could be exposed to the elements, such as wind, and rain. They are constructed of either Galvanized or Stainless Steel cable, to mitigate the eﬀects of the rain, and tensioned so that they are protected for the harmful eﬀects of the wind. Additionally vertical life lines are great to minimize fall distance and swing fall. Typically they limit the fall to 18” or less.
