Veolia in Australia were very impressed with the advantages offered by the T-Line for their application,
The T-Line could be mounted to the sloping roof, without the need for any additional steel work, thus keeping the railing system free for their maintenance equipment etc.
The T-Line offered continuous protection for the workers, from the time that they stepped off the platform walkway and onto the tanker itself and then even into the confined space (tank) if necessary.
The lifelines for the T-Line were easily looped around the services below the roof and the user is free to work beneath without the possibility of the lifelines snagging on the pipes etc.
There is no swing fall for the user, no matter where they were to fall from along the length of the tanker.
The T-Line unit could be mounted behind the handrail, with additional pulleys to raise the height of the lifelines. This ensured that the winch mechanism is within easy reach for anyone to effect a rescue from behind the safety of the hand rail. If a person falls whilst working on top of the tanker, they can simply winch them back to within reach of the handrail and pull them back to safety.
If there is an issue whilst someone is working inside the tank itself, someone can operate the winch to extract them from the confined space, whilst the other person stands above the entry point to help guide them out. If the person is unconscious, they can be transported back to the walkway using the T-Line winch or lowered to the ground using a separate personnel winch.
The T-Line has extremely short activation distances, so much so that if a worker trips whilst walking on top of the tank, the T-Line catches them before they hit the top of the tank.
