To find out if a rail system is suitable for you, feel free to call RIGCOM and we can help assess whether or not it is a good fit for you – totally free of charge.
Why use a Rail System?
Benefits of Using a Rail System:
- You can span long distances.
- Very effective in industrial height safety applications, where limited ground clearance
- Safe Access to the Roof
- Narrow walkways would adversely affect user safety considerations
- Where significant distance between the working platform and the anchorage system would affect functional
- For small fall arrest safety installations.
The goal of a rails system is to travel smoothly along the entire length of the rail allowing the user to move up and down, across or below the rail and/or the ladder, and to not snag or resist one’s motion. A rail system allows the user the freedom to move about with complete freedom as the rail provides a fixed, stable asset.
In the event of a fall, it minimilises fall distances and load forces on the user. Additionally, the system provides ample foot space but gives workers freedom of movement. Rail Systems can be overhead, on the ground, or on ladders.
“Safety while ascending and descending ladders is a key issue in many industries,” says Greg Peterson, systems manager for Capital Safety, Australia and New Zealand.
