Additional Information about Overhead Systems

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.
