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.

Guard Rail Systems Help Manage Traffic Flow in Industrial and Warehouse Environments

Guard Rail

This system will help protect your machinery, conveyors and facility from costly damages caused by mobile equipment lifting and carrying heavy loads. Guard Rail Systems are also used to help manage traffic flows in industrial manufacturing and warehouse areas.

Our Guard Rail System is easy to order and install; all hardware is included. After the posts are mechanically attached to the substrate, hangers and rails are installed without any tools. Guard Rail Sections can be easily removed in the future to service or replace equipment, machinery or conveyors.

Stair Platforms and Crossovers Are Freestanding and Quick Install

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.

Integrated Options for Attached Safety Rails Are Safety Gates, Toe Boards and Spanner Brackets

Attached Safety Rails

This System is available with Standing Seam Clamps and Permanent Mounts. Integrated options for Attached Safety Rails are Self-Closing Safety Gates and Toe Boards.

Standing Seam Clamp does not penetrate the roof and mechanically attaches to the roof standing seam using special clamps. Setup is simple using our custom project CAD drawings and a few wrenches.

Permanent Mounts mechanically attach to the substrate using our Floor or Wall Style Mounting Bases. These mounts are used for machine pits, roof perimeters, pits and vaults.

Track Fall Protection for Railcar, Truck and Aircraft

Hatch & Skylight Safety Rails

These systems are freestanding, non-penetrating and available in Roof Hatch, Roof Door and Skylight Styles. Hatch and Skylight Safety Rails ship fully assembled and are quick to install. Just place over hatch or skylight, 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.

Active vs Passive Fall Protection Systems
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
  • Gangways
  • Mezzanine Pivot Gates
  • Rolling Ladders
  • Custom Stairs

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 (Freestanding or Attached style) are for fall protection applications, and 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.
