Swing-Arm / Fold-Away

Swing-Arm / Fold-Away

CAI Safety’s Swing Arm Fall Protection 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.

Operation of the system is simple: The user extends the swing arm into position and ties off to the Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL) already installed on the system. Once work is completed, the user unhooks from the SRL and simply retracts the swing arm into a retracted position.

Self-retracting Lifeline: The Self-retracting Lifeline is utilized to reduce the arresting forces of the fall on the user and minimize the fall distance.
Swing-Arm/Fold Away: Allows the system to be extended when fall protection is required and retracted when access is required for overhead crane.
