XS Linked Cable Systems
XS Linked Cable Systems allow you to move freely, while always attached to the horizontal wire rope lifeline as you pass through all anchor points, including curves, corners, and ridge tops.
The XS Slider Trolley (aka glider, traveler, or shuttle) moves smoothly along the horizontal lifeline, while permitting you to work on both sides of the stainless steel cable path.
XS Impact Anchors With Energy-Absorbing Protection
An exclusive feature of all XS Linked Cable Systems is the use of XS Impact anchors with integrated energy-absorbing bending posts. These shock-absorbing posts allow for:
- Maximum protection for roofs and workers: even extremely lightweight roofs sustain only slight or no damage in the event of a fall.
- Greater distances between two anchoring points: up to 50’ (15m), depending on roof configuration.
Modular Topping Components
The XS Impact roof anchor includes an energy-absorbing bending post and XS Base Plate. The roof anchor is then topped with the appropriate XS component, depending upon your system layout:
- XS Point Terminals
- XS Tensioner II Terminals
- XS Intermediate Anchors
- XS Edge 90° Corners
- XS Edge 45° Corners
