Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Solutions

Overhead Fall Protection Systems

Our rigid fall protection systems provide fall arrest solutions in environments that require very short arrest distances. Fully modular, 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. Flexible Lifeline Systems' full family of rigid rail fall protection solutions includes: FlexRail, FlexBridge, FlexTraxx and Twin FlexRail.

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 Rigid Rail enclosed track system is by far the most reliable and safest 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.

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.

VARIATIONS

VARIATIONS

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.

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.
