Press release date: February 25, 2014

Seattle – Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently sold 900 ft of SpiderLine™ temporary horizontal lifeline system to provide complete fall protection for leading edge work at the Arcellor Mittal steel mill in Burns Harbor, Indiana.

The customer, Morrison, was faced with potential fall hazards while cleaning the mill's roof gutters. Spider was able to equip its SpiderLine™ system with a custom engineered weld-on bracket that provided 100% fall protection with a high anchor point and no pendulum effect. The system could be easily relocated to different areas of this large facility as needed, making it a cost-effective solution.

"Our design and engineering capabilities, quick turnaround, and local support availability were the primary factors in Spider's success on this custom solution," commented John Sotiroff, Vice President – Spider Sales & Distribution. "Morrison has been using Spider hoists for many years, and we were especially pleased to be able to provide them with a new solution to safely meet their fall protection needs."

Spider engineered, fabricated, and delivered this customized solution in just a few days.
