WHAT IS OVERHEAD FALL PROTECTION?
Fall protection is an overhead rigid rail system utilized anytime someone is traversing along an elevated surface. When used properly, the system is designed to prevent its user from falling a long distance and limits the fall to 2’ before the system takes over. This fall protection objective is achieved by installing a steel track above your walking surface providing continuous lateral coverage along any unprotected areas. Each component of the system serves its own critical function during any fall arrest hazards.
- Continuous lateral fall protection coverage along the full length of the system
- Reduced chances of a swing fall while working at elevated surfaces
- Total maximum fall distance of fewer than two feet
- Versatile selection of both permanent and portable fall protection
- Larger spans in foundational supports compared to cable lifeline systems
- Easy and quick connection for workers
- Can support multiple users simultaneously
