DIRECTIONAL ROPE GUIDANCE SYSTEM
LIFELINE® consists of 8mm braided rope mounted to the rock face (either on the side wall or the roof), which will specifically define the recommended escape route. A series of angles directional cones are fixed to the rope. The cones are manufactured in such a way that when LIFELINE® is being used, personnel are able to walk only in the direction of safety. The directional cones are fixed at 10m intervals over the span of the evacuation system.
Two options are available namely side-wall installation and roof installation.
The installation of LIFELINE® provides directional guidance and enables escapees to maintain balance, speed of escape, maximum travelling distance to the Self-Contained Self- Rescuer (SCSR).
The results show that with the LIFELINE® Escape System, escape walking speed can be maintained. The average escape speed with LIFELINE® is 1.09m per second, representing a speed excess of 75% of that observed during normal conditions of visibility.
