FLS Fall Protection for Railcars

Encore Wire is a copper wire manufacturing company. Beginning in 1989, Encore Wire has grown from a small warehouse to a 2 million square foot warehouse in McKinney, Texas.

Project Details

Encore’s Copper wire manufacturing facility required daily access to, and unloading of tanker cars at a working height of 12 feet. The risk of fall and injury at this facility was high.

Flexible Lifeline Systems designed, engineered, and installed one 140′ Overhead Horizontal Lifeline on gallows. Encore Wire installed foundations based on Flexible Lifeline Systems’ design and anchor bolts. There was an existing Geotech report from a previous project.
