Swing-Arm / Fold-Away

for Buses, Trucks & Overhead Crane Bays

The CAI Safety Swing Arm System was designed to provide OSHA fall protection that does not interfere with the operation of the overhead crane. The arms simply fold away from the work area when not required to allow the overhead crane full access. When needed the safety system is folded in to position to provide an overhead fall arrest system that allows personnel to work safely and efficiently.

Fall Protection Challenge

Most assembly, maintenance, and loading work is done with the aid of an overhead crane. Often a person has to be working at heights and exposed to a fall in areas with overhead cranes. Installing a fixed overhead fall protection system is not feasible because of the conflict with the overhead crane.

Fall Protection Solution

The CAI Swing Arm Fall Arrest System provides a system that can be extended to support employees who need fall protection at heights. The system can easily be retracted away from the work area when you need full access to the overhead crane. Our swing arm system is custom manufactured and OSHA complaint.

Features & Benefits
Swing-Arm Fall Protection

CUSTOM DESIGN

Our engineering and design team will anchor the swing arm fall protection system that can be supported from existing building columns or from freestanding supports. All drawings and design calculations will be stamped by a Professional Engineer (PE).

ERGONOMIC

By using low friction hinges with aluminum rigid rail track, we make the operation of the foldaway swing arm fall protection system smooth and user friendly.

FALL ARREST CAPABILITY

A self-retracting horizontal lifeline connects users to the fall arrest systems. When users fall, this system retracts the lifeline, with the help of a trolley to make for effective fall arrest.

Swing-Arm / Fold-Away System Components Swing-Arm: Allows the system to be extended when fall protection is required and retracted when access is required for overhead crane.
Horizontal Lifeline: This is an aluminum rigid track that runs the desired length to allow the user to have access to the work area.
Connecting Means: A Trolley that is designed to glide over the rigid or cable horizontal lifeline system. This feature keeps the fall arrest system directly above the user to reduce the chances of a swing fall.
Fall Arrest Device: The Self-retracting Lifeline is utilized to reduce the arresting forces of the fall on the user and minimize the fall distance.
Full Body Harness: Only a full body harness can be used in a fall arrest system such as the freestanding fall protection system. The harness reduces the forces of the fall on the body and also keeps the user in an upright position when properly worn.
