The RoofSafe™ Cable system is designed for continuous hands-free operation and can be laid out in many different configurations to suit different building types and shapes.


RoofSafe™ Cable Static Line is designed to be installed on the building roof. The system is typically used where the operative is required to move laterally over a significant distance whilst staying connected. The system provides fall protection for operatives doing a range of activities including roof wash downs, installing & maintaining HVAC air conditioning units, general maintenance, or gutter cleaning. The fall arrest system is designed to support and hold a person in the event of a fall.


In the event of a fall, the anchor breaks open, deploying the unique and patented Force Management Technology absorbing system which reduces the forces generated on the roof structure to less than 610kg. (6kN). In the unlikely event that the anchor is deployed, it is possible to remove the module and replace it with a new one. 3M RoofSafe Cable requires less experience compared to single anchor points making it one of the safest systems to use.


Conforms to AS/NZS 1891.2:2001 - Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices - Horizontal lifeline and rail systems safety standards, AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 - Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices - Selection, use, and maintenance, designed for and tested on most roof types, has been designed to withstand a 15kN load.



Installation must be carried out by an Accredited 3M Fall Protection, and in accordance with the manufacturer's installation instructions for service mounted systems. Metal roofs must have a minimum BMT of 0.42mm, aluminum roofs must have a minimum BMT of 0.90mm.


As per AS/NZS 1891.4 RoofSafe Cable must be certified every 12 months by an Accredited 3M Fall Protection Certification technician. All of the exposed materials in the system have been specified as naturally corrosion-resistant, or have been coated with sacrificial coatings to prevent oxidization of the base material. It is important to consider that in some environments the system may need to be cleaned to gain the best possible life expectancy from the materials.


3M RoofSafe Cable Static Line system has a product warranty of 10 years from the date of installation. The warranty is invalidated if inspections are not maintained every 12 months by an Accredited 3M Fall Protection Certification Technician.
