Fixed fall protection can sometimes complicate or inhibit operations.
Folding rigid rail systems provide all of the same features and benefits as fixed systems but are able to be swung out of the way when not in use.
High Engineering’s folding rigid systems usually attach to existing structural beams. Short folding rigid rails up to 40’-50’ can be operated manually and longer systems are motorized to swing in and out at the push of a button.
The column-mounted swing arm design of this overhead system enables 180-degree coverage when fall protection is required and folds out of the way when floor space is at a premium.
Systems are designed with a variety of different arm reaches, to support single or multi-users and can attach to building structures using multiple methods including weld-on or using bolt-on bracketry.
Minimizes Swing Hazard
The unique design of the hinged jib arm enables the trolley of this folding rigid rail arrest system to be positioned directly overhead users within small to medium work areas.
These innovative systems use CSA Z259.2, OSHA 1910, and ANSI Z359.6 standards for engineered fall protection as a minimum benchmark for design to provide safe & reliable solutions to user.
