Enhance Productivity

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

Rigid Rail systems are designed to support as many as 8 users with optional bypass on a single overhead solution enabling more efficient and effective work routines without jeopardizing safety.

Shorter Fall Distance Icon

SHORTER FALL DISTANCE

Rigid rail systems have the advantage over cable-based lifeline systems because they reduce fall distance and are often preferred when work is performed less than 12’ above a lower level.

Easy to Use Icon

EASY TO USE

Although fall arrest systems require proper safety training and a rescue procedure, overhead rigid rail lifeline systems are completely hands-free and enable users to concentrate on the task at hand.

Reliable Performance Icons

RELIABLE

Our enclosed track rigid rail systems are the most reliable engineered fall protection in use today and the 1:100 movement-to-weight ratio keeps the lifeline directly overhead eliminating in-line swing fall.

Our Service Areas:
Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Idaho and Alaska.

The Problem: need full mobility and Protection

In bustling work yards and shipping depots across the northwest, productivity hinges on mobility and agility. Yet these qualities can expose workers to significant risks, particularly when a fall can cause severe injury or damage expensive equipment. An accident resulting from inadequate safety procedures not only endangers lives but can also disrupt operations, incur costly medical expenses, and tarnish reputations.

While effective, traditional overhead wire systems often restrict movement and hinder productivity, which is not always the right solution in fast-moving workyards. They also sag, which could allow workers to fall further than a rigid system would. Moreover, the dynamic nature of many work environments necessitates a solution that offers both mobility and reliable protection, adapting seamlessly to changing work conditions without compromising safety.

From factories to transportation depots, the difficulty is in engineering a fall prevention system where space and mobile work are at a premium. The ideal solution cannot slow down workflow and must be effective in situations where even a short fall can cause serious injury or damage.

The Solution: A Rigid Rail Lifeline

Enter the rigid rail lifeline — a revolutionary pre-engineered solution designed to address the unique challenges of active work yards while prioritizing safety, mobility, and versatility. Unlike traditional fall protection systems, which may limit movement or require constant adjustments, rigid rail lifelines feature a rigid track system that provides continuous overhead anchorage for workers. This lifeline’s innovative design offers custom safety options for the price of prefabricated designs. Our modular pre-engineered solutions install quickly in any warehouse or transportation yard. A range of mounting options makes this lifeline a great fit regardless of roof height or work area, using free-standing, swing arm, or ceiling-mounted system tracks.

Constructed from high-strength, fully galvanized materials, this track ensures optimal performance even in demanding work environments. With its low-profile design and customizable configurations, the rigid rail lifeline seamlessly integrates into various workyards and easily adapts to unique layouts and requirements.

Key Features

Rigid rail lines are suitable for a variety of industries and warehouses utilizing both standard and high roof heights, from aviation to railways to vehicle fleet maintenance.

  • Single Rail: One rail with moving safety hookups is installed by attaching directly to existing roof purlins and secondary steel.
  • Twin Rail: In cases where multiple users need to pass by each other safely, the twin rail offers multiple lifeline tracks for maximum mobility.
  • Cartesian Bridge Rail: Great for larger areas, this system utilizes movable FlexBridge systems.
Shorter Drops

When working on sensitive equipment, stopping falls fast is key. Unlike traditional systems that rely on intermittent anchor points, the lifeline’s rigid track ensures continuous overhead anchorage to stop falls faster and prevent workers from injuring themselves or damaging valuable property.

Adaptive Configurations

The best safety solutions adapt to your needs. Rigid rail lifelines offer modular configurations to suit different applications and can be easily modified to keep up with changing work environments. Pre-engineered designs mean changing or expanding your configuration is fast and easy, without the need to wait on new custom parts.

Customizable Options

Rigid rail lifelines can be tailored to meet specific project requirements, from track length to mounting options and accessories. Employers can customize a solution that seamlessly aligns with their needs, ensuring optimal performance and compliance with safety regulations. And when you inevitably need to update your workspace, just reconfigure your track with minimal engineering input to reduce downtime without sacrificing safety.

High-Strength Construction

Rigid rail lifelines are built to withstand harsh conditions, including wet Pacific Northwest weather, and heavy use. This durable construction ensures long-term reliability, minimizing maintenance requirements and providing peace of mind for employers and workers alike.

Lightning Fast Installation

Rigid rail lifelines are designed for straightforward installation and minimal maintenance, minimizing downtime and disruption to operations. Systems can be installed in a single day without welding or heavy-duty lifting equipment thanks to their simple mounting systems and intuitive maintenance procedures.

Benefits of Rigid Rail LifelineS

Enhanced Safety

The primary benefit of a rigid rail lifeline is enhanced safety for workers who could fall even comparatively shorter distances when working on equipment. By providing continuous fall protection, these systems minimize the risk of injuries, ensuring a safer work environment for all personnel.

INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY

Unlike traditional fall protection systems that may impede movement or require frequent adjustments, rigid rail lifelines offer seamless integration with existing workflows, enabling workers to perform tasks efficiently without compromising safety. This increased mobility and agility translate to higher productivity and reduced downtime.

Compliance and Liability Reduction

By investing in a rigid rail lifeline, employers demonstrate their commitment to workplace safety and compliance with regulatory standards. By mitigating fall hazards, these systems also reduce the risk of costly fines, legal liabilities, and reputational damage associated with workplace accidents.

A World of Applications

Rigid rail lifelines are highly versatile and adaptable, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and environments. Whether installed in manufacturing facilities, construction sites, or warehouses, these systems can be customized to meet the specific needs of any project, ensuring optimal performance and worker protection.

Long-Term Cost Savings

While the initial investment in a rigid rail lifeline may be more than that of a cable-based horizontal lifeline, the long-term cost savings associated with lower maintenance, enhanced safety, and increased productivity ultimately make them a critical investment. These systems keep your most valuable assets safe by minimizing the risk of accidents and equipment damage.
