Press release date: April 17, 2014

Seattle – Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently provided SpiderLine® temporary horizontal lifeline systems for fall protection during the deck replacement on the I-77 bridge in Garfield Heights, Ohio.

Long-time Spider customer, Ruhlin Construction Company, required a pass- through fall protection system that was easy to move and highly visible for its workers. Spider's Cleveland team demonstrated the SpiderLine® system at Ruhlin's facility, and within two days of the demo, the order was placed for twenty-seven lifeline assemblies and seventy stanchions.

"Spider's product demonstration combined with a referral from a trusted colleague who sang SpiderLine®‘s praises to convince us that this system was the best solution to keep our bridge workers safe and productive," commented Ryan Berkhouse, Safety Director with Ruhlin. "In addition to meeting all our initial requirements, we liked that SpiderLine® stanchions had the option to be converted to concrete, if needed. And with Spider's reputable after-sale support, we couldn't go wrong."

Spider's solution is expected to be on-site until this phase of the project concludes in ____. The successful bridge deck replacement will ultimately improve drainage on I-77 north- and south-bound between I-480 and Grant Avenue over the Cuyahoga River, State Route 17, Canal Road, CSX Railroad and the Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation.
