Overhead Building Mounted

Railcar / Tanker / Hopper / Grain
Outdoor freestanding fall arrest anchor systems
Our OSHA-compliant horizontal lifelines, anchors, and access platforms can be used to provide fall protection for a variety of railcar applications. We offer a full range of fall prevention and fall arrest systems including freestanding, building mounted, and portable railcar fall protection anchors.
CAI Safety System’s engineers are adept at using your overhead structure to support a tanker and hopper railcar fall arrest system. We will assess your current building structure and application to determine which type of system would work best.

Fall Protection Challenge

Working indoors and on top of railcars indoors creates a hazard that requires OSHA fall protection. Often there is also people and forklift traffic that limits the fall protection options to consider.

Fall Protection Solution

Using your overhead structure CAI can supply a Horizontal Lifeline system to provide fall protection on top of your tanker and grain railcars. The overhead fall arrest system is completely anchored from the overhead structure leaving your floor space available for other use. We can provide both cable and rigid rail horizontal lifelines that are continuous and easy to use.

Features & Benefits

CUSTOM DESIGN

Our experienced engineering team will design a fall protection system that makes use of your existing building structure to anchor a fall protection system for your tanker and hopper railcar. Any drawings or calculations that we produce for you will be stamped by a professional engineer (PE).

Indoor Building Mounted Railcar System

EASY TO INSTALL

Railcar fall protection systems are shipped as a fully manufactured unit to reduce field installation time. Field assembly consists of bolting and clamping to the existing building structure versus welding.

Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System

RAILCAR FALL ARREST CAPABILITY

Fall arrest is made efficient through our horizontal lifelines. The lifeline is attached to a trolley that tracks the user’s movements. When a user falls, the lifeline retracts to stop the fall.

SAFETY TRAINING

Our fall protection systems are only effective if the user has been trained properly on how to use your system. Our trainers will instruct users on system regulations, correct use, and proper maintenance of your railcar system. Training is tailored to your specific railcar application.

FLEXIBILITY

Depending on the span you want to cover and the existing building structure we will do a comprehensive work site analysis and show you the most economical and safe option. CAI offers both pass-through cable, aluminum rigid rail horizontal lifeline and single point anchors for your railcar fall protection needs.

SIDE MOUNTED

Our engineers have designed an innovative side wall mounted option that is an ideal outdoor application solution when there is no space to mount a floor mounted anchor between the railcar and building.

HORIZONTAL LIFELINE FOR RAILCAR

Users can walk around the top of the railcar without safety concerns once they are attached to the horizontal lifeline. The length of the chosen lifeline is the only limit for a worker.

Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System

RETRIEVAL SYSTEM

Fall protection does not start when you are already on top of the railcar and exposed to a hazard. We offer several options to retrieve the fall arrest system while you are still at ground level including taglines, pulleys and a electric winch system. based on your requirements and fall protection needs we will recommend the most suitable solution.
