Rigid Rail Fall Protection

Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Solutions

Overhead Rigid Rail Fall Protection Systems

One of the most common fall arrest solutions, our rigid rail systems provide fall arrest solutions in environments that require very short arrest distances. If a worker should fall while properly utilizing the system, the rigid lifeline setup will arrest the fall in a much shorter distance than similar lifeline products. This makes rigid lifelines ideal for applications such as aircraft maintenance, where a fall from a wing needs to be arrested in a short distance.

The versatile nature of our systems allow us to configure a solution to your specific needs. Fully modular, the design of our single rail systems ensure the trolley always stays overhead even with retractable lifelines exceeding 85’ in length. Flexible Lifeline Systems' full family of rigid rail fall protection solutions include: Single Rail, Cartesian Bridge Rail, and Twin Rail.

BYPASS CAPABILITY

BYPASS CAPABILITY

Multi-track systems provide multiple users the added benefit of bypass resulting in increased safety and productivity. You no longer have to worry about users disconnecting from the system in order to pass each other.

FUTURE EXPANSION

FUTURE EXPANSION

We design Rigid Rail systems with future expansions and modifications in mind thanks to the modular nature of our overhead solutions.

DURABILITY

DURABILITY

All structural components are hot-dip galvanized in accordance with ASTM A-123 for added durability and corrosion control. The teflon wheels of the sealed bearing trolleys on our rigid rail systems do not damage the coating, resulting in years of maintenance free use.

RELIABILITY

RELIABILITY

The design of the enclosed track prevents the build up of dust, debris, ice, and snow allows the rigid rail system to function properly both indoors as well as outdoors.

VERSATILE

VERSATILE

Our Rigid Rail System is capable of curves and intersections allowing increased user productivity. By combining parallel FlexRail tracks, the Twin FlexRail allows user to by-pass each other. This feature frees users up to work with full mobility without worrying about getting tangled up with each other.

Aircraft Fall Protection for U.S. Military

FLS engineered, fabricated and installed a total of twelve enclosed track and trolley systems capable of supporting three users each. FLS designed the safety systems at elevations below HVAC and fire protection equipment to prevent interference with other hangar systems.
