             Fixed Line System Design & Installation Service
             The Anchorage forms an important part of Fall Protection System. In the event of movement at height, along the vertical or a horizontal
             axis, we require an Anchorage System that spans across this movement. The Fixed Line Systems are such specially engineered
              It is important to understand that the Forces experienced over system and underlying structures in the event of a fall, are extremely
             complex to calculate and define.
              KARAM offers exceptional expertise to combat the problem. KARAM has a dedicated Team of trained Engineers who, by virtue of their
             experience and knowledge, are able to suggest optimal solutions for the requirement of FLS.
             This offers  following advantage to the Client:
                Ÿ   Provide a safe solution for anchorage
                Ÿ   Optimize the cost of the solution through Engineered products
                Ÿ   Safeguard the underlying structure on which the Line is installed.

                  KARAM uses the latest Design software like CAD, and Structural Design Software like StaadPro to accurately design Anchorage Line System, and
                   simulate the forces in the event of a fall.

             It is also extremely important for the Client to be confident of the system installed. Team KARAM uses specialized Onsite Testing
             and Proof-loading Equipment from HydraJaws UK, to provide this specialized service.
             KARAM also provides services for Annual on-site Inspection and Revalidation of these Systems.

                Why is Revalidation of Fall Protection   Fall Protection Equipment are life saving products. As per the EN 365 of PPE Directives, it is mandatory to have a
