CAIâ€™s freestanding fall protection system is supported from concrete piers. This engineered approach gives you the option of having an outdoor fall arrest system that supports your Railcar loading needs.
If your railcars are serviced over a curved track we have a solution. Our fall protection system can be configured to offer strategically placed anchors around your railcar track allowing us to match the fall arrest cable horizontal lifeline system with the radius of your track.
Once on top of the Railcar the user is able to walk uninterrupted the length of the horizontal lifeline or crouch down with no restriction on movement. Pass-through features on cable systems means you only tie-off once and then walk the full span of the horizontal lifeline.
Our “T Anchor” design allows for the placement of the fall protection system between the rail tracks thus having the capability of two fall protection systems with a common anchor system.
CAIâ€™s freestanding fall arrest anchors are designed to comply with the railroad minimum clearance requirements.
To reduce field assembly time, our fall protection products are shipped fabricated with detailed assembly instructions. Assembly comprises of steel erection with bolting and clamping of the major components.
We have an in-house team to engineer and manufacture the freestanding fall arrest system. This means we can monitor the QA and QC throughout the process to make sure the product delivered to your doorstep is safe and meets your specification needs.
Often the need to service railcars on two parallel tracks creates a dilemma if there is no space to place the anchor between tracks. CAI has developed a solution by placing this anchor on the outside of one track AND then cantilevering over both tracks thereby providing a means for suspending an anchor point or horizontal lifeline over each railcar track.
A fall protection expert will guide you in the proper selections of the anchor, horizontal lifeline and custom features to make sure that you have the right fall protection system for your railcar loading needs.
We offer fall arrest anchors to cover everything from a single hatch tanker car, a sixty foot hopper or several hundred feet of hopper railcars.
Our anchors can be customized to support one application or two applications in parallel. We can custom design our anchors to be placed on the side or between tracks.
We can retrofit our anchors to support a staircase with platform and gangway to provide safe passage to the top of the railcar. By integrating the method of access and fall protection with our freestanding fall protection system we save you space and money.
