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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
