Description

The Ladder Rigid Track Fall Arrest System connects the worker to the system via a rail shuttle and automatically follows the user for hands-free climbing, and locks onto the rail in the event of a fall, allowing the user to regain their footing. Designed for ease of use and versatility, you can configure to an existing ladder or customize a system with integrated ladder pegs when no ladder exists.

The Ladder Rigid Track System provides an innovative solution for vertical climbing that is easy-to-use, requires minimal maintenance and provides superior safety. Kits are available in aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel construction. The easy-climb fall arrest system offers hands-free fall protection that ultimately increases worker mobility, safety and productivity.

The fall arrest system consists of top and bottom rail gates, rail joints, angle iron clamps, step bolts, and an optional sleeve/shuttle designed to mount the rigid aluminum rail to the structure.

Full-body harness is not included with this kit and can be purchased as an accessory.


FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Smooth, quiet trailing action along the rail – provides an easier, more comfortable climb.
  • Automatic design – keeps both hands free for climbing.
  • Stainless steel catch clamp – locks into the rail in the event of a fall.
  • Integrated shock-absorbing mechanism – reduces force on the worker and system in the event of a fall.
  • Fall indicator – alerts user to know when to remove the product from service.
  • Integrated swivel, auto-locking carabiner connection – aids in trailing alignment and meets allowable attachment length.
  • Design prevents upside-down installation – increases worker safety by ensuring proper attachment.
  • No requirement to lean back while climbing – reduces fatigue; ideal for ladder cages and confined spaces.
  • Ergonomically designed for easy one-hand installation – increases productivity.

!! CAUTION !! This is a fall protection system. The system must be used in strict conformance with the manufacturer's instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. You can download the system manuals from the 'Downloads' tab. Do not use or operate this system unless you are properly trained. You are also encouraged to contact us in case of any questions.

Ladder Rigid Track Fall Arrest system must meet the following ladder requirements:

  • For the kits, a ladder must be a fixed ladder with rungs having outer diameters between 3/4 inch (19.1mm) and 1-1/4 inches (31.8mm). For ladder rungs with larger diameters, rung clamps with longer hardware are available which will accommodate rungs up to 1-3/4 inches (44.5mm).
  • According to ANSI A14.3, the minimum width of the ladder must be 16 inches (406.4mm) from inside rail to inside rail.
  • For non-standard ladder rungs, contact CAI Safety Systems at 800-246-6999 or webstore@caisafety.com for additional information and assistance.
  • The integrated shock absorber of the Universal II fall arresters limits fall arrest forces to 1350 lbf. (6kN). This is the maximum force
    on a ladder system for a single user.

To calculate the maximum working load rating on a ladder system with more than one user, the following formula can be used as a guide:

  • Ladder Working Load Rating = (Fall Arrest Force + (Maximum # of Users – 1 x Weight of Worker))
  • Example: Ladder rated for 4 users at 250 lbf. each:
    • Ladder Working Load Rating would be:
      • = (1350 lbf. + (3 x 250 lbf.))
      • = 2100 lbf. Ladder Working Load

To calculate the maximum working load rating on an individual ladder rung for more than one user, the following formula can be used as a guide:

  • Ladder Rung Working Load Rating = (Fall Arrest Force + (Maximum # of Users – 1 x Weight of Worker)) / # of Ladder Clamps
  • Example: Ladder rated for 4 users at 250 lbf. each on a 40ft. system:
    • Ladder Rung Working Load Rating would be:
      • = (1350 lbf. + (3 x 250 lbf.)) / 7
      • = 300 lbf. per Ladder Rung

Important Notes:

  1. Working load rating DOES NOT INCLUDE A SAFETY FACTOR.
  2. Specific ladder compliance standards may vary and must be used when required to determine rung force requirements and safety factors.
  3. The fall arrester limits the maximum fall arrest force to under 1350 lbf. (6kN). This is the maximum force on a ladder system for a single user.

Please contact CAI Safety Systems at 800-246-6999 or webstore@caisafety.com for additional information and installation assistance.
