Overhead Fall Protection
CUSTOM FALL PROTECTION DESIGN
CAI qualified engineers will design a system that takes in to account your access, fall clearance and operational needs. The drawings and design calculations prepared for all active fall protection systems are stamped by a Professional Engineer (PE).
FLEXIBILITY OF HORIZONTAL LIFELINE SYSTEMS
CAI Systems designs are driven by your needs not by our limitations. We provide cable, rigid rail horizontal lifelines as well as single point anchors for indoor fall protection applications.
EASY TO INSTALL
CAI Building Mounted Systems are fully fabricated and tested for fitting prior to shipping. We avoid onsite welding and instead rely on bolting and clamping to the building structure.
CONTINOUS SAFETY SYSTEM
Comprehensive fall protection begins at ground level before you begin ascending to the work platform. We use user friendly methods for easy system retrieval from the ground level including a tagline, mechanical pulley system or motorized hoist system.
Our aluminum rigid rail track or stainless steel pass-through cable systems achieved maximum operational efficiency at our user sites for many years and have withstood the test of time in an industrial environment. Try us! We also offer special finishes and construction for harsh and corrosive conditions.
FALL ARREST RATED
In the event of a fall CAI's self-retracting lifelines will arrest the fall and at the same time keep the forces generated by a fall to a minimum. Our self-retracting lifelines are configured for suspension from the trolley to keep the anchor point above the user, thereby limiting fall loads and further protecting the worker.
CONTINOUS HORIZONTAL LIFELINE SYSTEM
Once on top of the work area, the user is able to freely walk the length of the horizontal lifeline with no compromise to safety or productivity.
FALL PROTECTION TRAINING
Training is an indispensible part of our fall protection approach. Our trainers will instruct the user on the regulations, correct use, and proper maintenance of the overhead fall protection system. Training is tailored to your specific system and use.
FREESTANDING FALL ARREST ANCHORS
Our freestanding fall protection system are supported from concrete piers or foundation designed by a PE as required by OSHA. This approach allows you the flexibility of having a freestanding outdoor system that supports your railcar loading/unloading needs without compromising safety.
EASE OF INSTALL
Our outdoor fall protection systems are shipped fabricated. Field assembly consists of simple bolting and clamping that can be done by a local qualified contractor.
Our aluminum rigid rail track or stainless steel pass-through cable systems have been field proven as dependable and durable fall protection systems. We also offer special finishes and construction for highly corrosive and harsh environments.
USER FRIENDLY SAFETY SYSTEM
Using our innovative pulley retrieval system the user is able to access the fall protection Self Retracting Lifeline while safely on the ground.
FALL ARREST CAPABILITY
Each system consists of a self retracting lifeline suspended from a trolley. The trolley positions the system above the user to reduce chances of a swing fall and the self retracting lifeline will arrest a fall that is in progress.
FLEXIBILITY OF HORIZONTAL LIFELINE OPTIONS
CAI can provide both cable and rigid rail horizontal lifeline systems. After evaluating your application we will advise you on the most suitable system for your tanker, truck, hopper and/or bulk railcar application.
CONTINUOUS FALL PROTECTION OVER YOUR APPLICATION
Once on top of the work area, the user is able to freely walk the length of the horizontal lifeline with no compromise to safety or productivity. Passthrough feature on cable systems means you only tie-off once and then walk the full span of the fall protection system.
CUSTOM FALL PROTECTION SYSTEM
By strategically placing the anchors, we are able to match the fall arrest horizontal lifeline system with the radius of your work area.
'T-ANCHOR' SYSTEM FOR DUAL APPLICATIONS
Our "T Anchor" design allows for the placement of the fall protection system between two work platforms. Have the capability of two fall protection systems with a common anchor system.
CANTILEVER SYSTEM FOR DUAL TRACKS
If there is no space between the tracks we have a cantilevered design for servicing two rail tracks. Have the capability of two fall protection systems with a common anchor system.
SINGLE FALL ARREST ANCHOR SYSTEMS
We offer single anchor systems for applications such as one hatch tanker railcars or trucks where the user needs to only access a length of 10 to 15 feet.
Our range of overhead fall protection equipment includes both mounted and freestanding systems that can be customized according to your safety needs. All our systems are OSHA, ANSI and MSHA compliant. They find application in a wide variety of sectors like aviation, transportation, oil and gas, mining, and utilities.
Building-mounted systems & Freestanding systems: When the work is done indoors, they may not be enough floor space for a freestanding or floor-mounted overhead fall protection system. Even if the limited space were to be used, it might obstruct the movement of people and/or forklifts.
Just get in touch with us. We will look at your access needs and fall clearance; and design a building-mounted (this would be affixed to your building's steel structure) overhead fall protection system or freestanding overhead fall protection system that meets all your operational requirements. We have years of experience that enable us to do this, and all drawings are approved by a Professional Engineer before we get started.
Our cable horizontal lifelines and rigid rail horizontal lifelines are flexible and can be installed just about anywhere, be it an aircraft, bus, truck, railcar or earthmover that you may be working on. This way, we fit them to need, not the other way around of making the need fit the equipment. If both a building-mounted fall protection system and a freestanding fall protection system need to be installed together, we can do that for you as well.
Our fall protection systems are all fabricated and tested offsite before being installed. To minimize inconvenience, we do not do any on-site welding, but only bolt and clamp everything to the building structure. The horizontal lifelines (aluminum for rigid rail systems, stainless steel for cabled systems) also withstand harsh operating conditions and corrosive environments without complaint. Safety is paramount, but we also focus on efficiency. Every worker is protected even before he begins his ascent; and should he fall, there are retracting lines that get him back to his working position in the shortest possible time so that he can continue what he was doing before he fell. With a Cable Horizontal Lifeline, a worker can walk the length of the fall protection system; and so does not have to feel constrained in anyway. This is how productivity is not compromised in any way.
We also offer training on how to use and maintain our overhead fall protection systems correctly.
