Description

The Ladder Rigid Track Fall Arrest System connects the worker to the system via a rail trolley 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. The system provides maximum climbing safety for workers in virtually any place that climbing must be done. The rail attaches quickly and easily to any ladder, step, or climbing surface.

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 anodized aluminum or stainless steel construction. The easy-climb fall arrest system offers hands-free fall protection that ultimately increases worker mobility, safety and productivity.

Can be installed on a multitude of applications such as towers, antennas, chimneys, stacks, scaffolds, support poles, wind generators, signs, water tanks, dams, silos, shipboard, ladders, and virtually any place that climbing must be done!

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

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

  • PERSONAL FALL ARREST SYSTEM COMPONENTS: CAI’s vertical rail system must be used with manufacturer’s approved components and subsystems. Other system components may be incompatible, which could directly affect the safety and reliability of the entire system. Personal fall arrest components used with this system must meet all applicable OSHA and ANSI requirements.
  • PERSONAL FALL ARREST SYSTEM CONNECTORS: Connectors used in attaching to the vertical rail system (hooks, carabiners, etc.…) must support at least 5,000 lbs. Connectors and attachments must be compatible in size, shape, and strength. Non-compatible connectors may disengage. Only use locking connectors with this system.
  • ANCHORAGE CONNECTORS: All connectors used in attaching the rail to the ladder must be compatible with the connection point on the system. The connection must be positive and capable of sustaining a 3,600 lb. load without failure.
  • REMOVABLE EXTENSION: When the extension is installed on rigid track at the top of ladder that accesses a landing or platform, the extension should be extended a minimum of 3.5’ to a maximum of 4.5’ above the platform floor. This allows the climber to step unto the platform while still attached to the safety rail. This applies to both center and side mounted rail systems.
  • The connecting subsystem between the harness and rail must limit fall arrest forces to 1,800 lbs. or less with an average force less than 1,350 lbs. or less.
  • According to ANSI A14.3, the minimum width of the ladder must be 16 inches (406.4 mm) from inside rail to inside rail.
  • For non-standard ladder rungs not shown on this product page, contact CAI Safety Systems at (951) 465-7386 or webstore@caisafety.com for additional information and assistance.
  • APPLICABLE STANDARDS: Meets or exceeds ANSI Z359.16, OSHA 1910.29(i) standards. Refer to the national standards including ANSI Z359.0, 1, 2 and 16, local, state, and federal including OSHA 1910.29(i) requirements for more information on personal fall arrest systems.

Please contact CAI Safety Systems at (951) 465-7386 or webstore@caisafety.com for additional information and installation assistance.
