Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems

Rigid rail fall protection systems are ideal for indoor and outdoor applications with minimal fall clearance. Rigid systems come in two forms, trolley systems which utilize existing overhead I-Beams and rigid track or rigid rail fall arrest systems. These systems feature an enclosed track with a self-retracting lifeline for a worker to safely travel the entire span of the track with continuous tie-off.
Unlike a horizontal lifeline, rigid rail systems have limited deflection, which limits free-fall. During a fall arrest scenario with a horizontal lifeline, cable sag causes the traveler to slide to the center-point of the nearest supports. This motion can cause a worker to hit walls and nearby structures during or after a fall. In addition to reduced deflection rates, rigid track or beam style fall protection systems are better suited for accommodating multiple users.
Liftsafe Fall Protection provides regulation compliant ridgid rail systems for ceiling-mounted, jib, travelling, freestanding, adjustable, portable, pic mod and many more applications. Our systems are applicable for facilities that lack overhead anchor points and maintenance tasks that are not consistently confined to a designated work area.
Canada Occupational Safety and Health Regulations, SOR/86-304, Sections 12.01 to 12.09
