Tractel Travsmart® Horizontal Lifeline System

The Travsmartl® is Tractel’s most versatile single cable lifeline. Designed for use by up to five people simultaneously, it is easy to install thanks to special anchorage and it does not require any special tools. In the event of damage, repairs are made possible without dismantling the entire lifeline.

The travsmart can be utilized in both outdoor and indoor applications. It can be installed on a wall, floor, overhead or on posts. The traveler can be connected at any point on the lifeline and easily passes over anchor points, including curves. This solution is ideal for building maintenance, especially on rooftops without guardrails or parapets, for distribution facilities and industrial plants, and on bridges and viaducts. It is specifically designed to keep users safe when working in high risk areas.

The flexibility and versatility that comes with this unlimited length system is unmatched and trusted by industry professionals around the world. Our travsmart system has been utilized during inspection and maintenance of overhead cranes, atop military roofs to provide secure access for repairs, and inside factories where there is a need to work at height. It is the ideal solution for roofs of any kind, in almost every industry.
