Helping Your Employees Work Safer
Freestanding Safety Rails
This system does not require holes or penetrations into the substrate. Setup is quick and easy without the use of tools or fasteners; simply place the Freestanding Bases using our Base Mover/Dolly and install the Rail Sections. Freestanding Safety Rails are designed to be used on sloped surfaces with a 1/12 pitch or less.
Time Saving Fast Installation, two inexperienced workers can install 175 lineal feet per hour. Integrated options for Freestanding Safety Rails are Ladder Spanner Brackets, Toe Boards, Safety Gates, Protective Pads and Base Mover/Dolly.
Roof Hatch Safety Rails
This system is freestanding, non-penetrating and available for hatch and door applications. Hatch Safety Rails ship fully assembled or modular bolt together design. They are quick to install, just place over hatch and tighten rubber padded compression bolt against the curb.
Roof Hatch Kits include Grab Bars, Self-Closing Safety Gate and Safe Landing Zone. The Safe Landing Zone allows workers to step out of the hatch and gain footing before exiting the Self-Closing Safety Gate. Finishes for Hatch Safety Rails are hot dipped galvanized or safety yellow powder coat.
Roof Safety Rails
This System uses one-piece modular, or pipe and clamp Rail Sections. Bases for Roof Safety Rails Systems are Freestanding, Portable, Standing Seam and Parapet Clamp. Integrated options are Ladder Spanner Brackets for attaching to roof ladders, Self-Closing Safety Gates and Toe Boards.
Freestanding, Portable, Standing Seam and Parapet Clamp Bases do not penetrate the roof. Installation is quick and simple using our customized project CAD drawings. Finishes are safety yellow, hot dipped galvanized and custom colors.
Stair Platforms & Crossovers
This system will help your employees and visitor’s safety mover over plant site obstacles and danger. Applications for Stair Platforms and Crossovers are pipe racks, conveyors, processing equipment, roof parapets and ducts, traffic areas and many other industrial and commercial hazards.
This system is freestanding and quick to install with just a few hand tools; no other field fabrication is required. Stair Platforms and Crossovers can be ordered as modular bolt together or fully welded assembly. This system is built to last using AWS Certified Welders and galvanized finish.
In-Plant Safety Handrails
This System use one-piece modular Rail Sections with Floor or Wall Mounting Plates. Safety Handrails integrated options are Self-Closing Safety Gates and slide on Toeboards. Standard finishes are safety yellow powder coat or hot dipped galvanized.
Safety Handrails are easy to order and install. After the Floor or Wall Mounts are mechanically attached to the substrate, Rail Sections are installed with Locking Pins or set screws. Rail Sections can be easily removed in the future to service or replace equipment, machinery or conveyors.
Specialty Fall Protection Systems
Most of Safety Rails Systems are passive and don't require active fall protection (see below) after they are installed. Here are some of our specialty passive fall protection systems:
- Loading Dock Gates
- Caged Ladders
- Pallet Gates
- Mezzanine Pivot Gates
- Custom Stairs
- Track Rails
Track Rail is the only active fall protection offered by Safety Rails Systems. If we can’t provide a passive solution, then this system can help protect workers when accessing railcars, trucks and aircraft.
Safety Rails vs. Guard Rail System
Industry wide, Safety Rails and Guard Rail Systems could be used for either fall protection or protecting equipment. As outlined above, our Safety Rails are for fall protection applications, and our Equipment Guard Rail Systems are for protecting equipment and assets.
What determines if Safety Rails or Guard Rail Systems can be used for passive fall protection is meeting the requirements of OSHA 1910 (General Industry) and 1926 (Construction). Our Safety Rails meet all requirements of OSHA 1910 and 1926. Additionally, our Safety Rails are tested and certified by a third-party engineering firm, and these certifications are available upon request.
Passive vs. Active Fall Protection
Passive fall protection systems do not require the use of personal protective equipment and active participation from the worker once installed. Examples of passive fall protective include Safety Rails, Guard Rail, Stair Platforms, Roof Hatch and Skylight Guards.
There are two types of active fall protection; fall restraint and fall arrest. Fall restraint requires the connecting device to keep the worker form going over a fall hazard edge. Fall arrest systems require securing a harnessed worker to an anchorage point with a connecting device. Example of active fall arrest is out Track Fall Protection System.
