Rigid rails are a profiled horizontal line made of steel or aluminium permanently fixed to the supporting structure by ending and intermediate brackets. A mobile anchor point (slider) allows travelling safely along the safety rail horizontally and even vertically (up to 1 meter). The slider (trolley) works as a connector to the PPE users. It is an ideal solution to secure people working on tankers, wagons, trams, planes, tanks, silos, etc. and at loading and unloading facilities.
How rigid rails EN ISO 795 work?
The system consists of a guide rail and specially curved brackets, which can be fitted to the side, overhead or on the ground with large intervals between brackets. A mobile anchor point (slider) is intended to travel along the rigid rails working as a connector to the PPE user. The safety system user is additionally equipped with an appropriate connecting and shock-absorbing fall arrest subsystem. This ensures excellent protection for the operator forced to constantly change the place working at height. Rigid rails EN 795 can be installed to the side, overhead or on the ground with long spans between the rail fixing points. The individual components allow the course of the guide rail to be adapted to the local conditions.
Distribution of the forces to the support structure in the event of a fall is achieved by means of a large number of intermediate brackets, not through the two end fittings, as is the case with cable systems, or a single point, as with anchorage points. Rigid rails fall arrest system can absorb forces up to 100 KG without deforming the system.
Rigid rails EN 795 Grün MultiRail – advantages
- quick and easy installation thanks to 3 and 6 meters length rails. Possibility of assembly at spans up to 6 m.
- made of stainless steel and anodized aluminium. It is a solution resistant to the most difficult weather conditions. Many years of use without any special maintenance.
- rails do not require annual servicing, as is the case with cable systems. This reduces the running costs and offsets any increase in purchasing costs.
- up to 6 users secured at once to the rigid rails fall arrest system
Legal basis – European standard EN ISO 795
Rigid rails MultiRail fall arrest system have been tested and positively certified in accordance with the European standard EN ISO 795 as class D – Personal fall protection equipment – Anchor devices – Requirements and tests.
Rigid rails do not require annual servicing as in the case of rope systems. A mobile anchor point (slider) allows travelling safely along the anchor line horizontally and even vertically (up to 1 meter). Grün MultiRail allows securing up to 6 users at the same time. The fall arrest system meets the requirements of the EN ISO 795 standard as class D.
