Outdoor Freestanding Railcar Fall Protection & Arrest System

  • FEATURES & BENEFITS

    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • FREESTANDING ANCHORS

      CAI's freestanding Railcar fall protection system is supported from concrete piers. This engineered approach gives you the option of having an outdoor fall protection system that supports your railcar loading/unloading needs with safety.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • EASY TO INSTALL

      Our Railcar fall protection systems are fully fabricated and tested for fitting prior to shipping. We try and avoid onsite welding and instead rely on bolting and clamping to reduce install time.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • RETRIEVAL SYSTEM

      Comprehensive fall protection begins at ground level before starting to ascend the railcar. Using our innovative pulley retrieval system enables the user to access the fall protection Self-Retracting Lifeline from the ground.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • FALL ARREST RATED

      In the event of a fall the self-retracting lifeline will arrest the fall and at the same time keep the forces generated by a fall to a minimum on the user. Generally self-retracting lifelines suspend from a trolley to keep the anchor point directly above the user for maximum fall safety.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • FLEXIBILITY OF HORIZONTAL LIFELINE SYSTEMS

      CAI offers you systems that are driven by your needs not by our limitations; we can provide the most effective and efficient cable system, rigid rail horizontal lifelines as well as single point anchor systems for outdoor railcar fall protection.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • HORIZONTAL LIFELINE SYSTEM OVER YOUR RAILCAR

      Once on top of the Railcar the user is able to freely walk 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.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • CURVED RAILCAR TRACK

      Track systems are 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.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • T-ANCHOR SYSTEM FOR DUAL RAILCAR TRACKS

      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.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • CANTILEVER SYSTEM FOR DUAL TRACKS

      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.
    • Permanent Outdoor Freestanding Railcar System
    • SINGLE FALL ARREST ANCHOR SYSTEMS

      Single arm anchor systems such as ours are ideal for applications such as one hatch tanker railcars where the user needs to only access a length of 10 feet or less.
