Rigid Rail Fall Protection Solutions

The FLS Rail family of rigid rail fall protection solutions includes our FlexRail, FlexBridge, FlexTraxx and Twin FlexRail solutions. FLS Rail solutions have gained popularity in recent years due to their ability to arrest falls in very short distances and wide variety of configurations available.

All steel based FLS Rail solutions are available in painted or galvanized finishes. The FlexRail trolley has a 100:1 weight to movement ratio, ensuring the trolley always stays overhead even with retractable lifelines exceeding 85’ in length.

Multiple System Configurations and Advantages

Our enclosed track FlexRail system is used in overhead applications with limited fall distances. This Rigid Rail system is capable of curves and intersections allowing increased user productivity.

A variant of the FlexRail system can be used in a Cartesian bridge format. This FlexBridge system provides large areas of fall protection coverage. This is a favored solution in applications where the required location of the fall protection can change often.

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.

BYPASS CAPABILITY

BYPASS CAPABILITY

Multi-track systems allow multiple users gain 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

The modular style of our Rigid Rail systems makes it easy to add sections when you expand your capacities. We’ll even design your system with your expansion plans in mind to further reduce costs when you are ready to increase capacity.

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. A life expectancy of 25 years, maintenance free, is not uncommon in most industries.

RELIABILITY

RELIABILITY

The Rigid Rail enclosed track system is by far the most reliable fall protection system in the world. With its 1:100 movement to weight ratio, the elimination of dust, debris, and ice and snow build up, it is the safest system in use today. With systems installed all over the world, FLS provides you with peace of mind knowing that you’re providing employees with the best fall protection system available.

AFFORDABILITY

AFFORDABILITY

When compared to old style exposed flange trolley beam systems, the competitive initial cost, zero ongoing maintenance costs, the increased productivity, and the peace of mind make the obvious choice. FLS has designed and installed more fall protection systems in many different and challenging applications than any other fall protection system contractor in North America. Our service is second-to-none. Our wide array of products are the best available worldwide and the costs are surprisingly affordable despite the obvious unequaled value.
