Rigid Rail Safety Systems

Rigid rail safety systems comprise a high-strength but low-weight aluminium rail or track, able to span up to 6 meters between structural supports. Inside the track is a robust sealed bearing trolley with lateral stabilizing bearings providing effortless freedom of movement for up to 4 simultaneous users. 

Rigid Overhead Rails are designed to comply with Australian Standards  AS/NZS1891.2:2001, AS/NZS1891.4:2009 and relevant statutory OHS Codes of Practice/Guidelines. We use high-quality systems manufactured locally to by Kattsafe (formerly Sayfa).

Anchor Safe is a certified preferred installer for Kattsafe Overhead Rigid Rail systems. Contact us for more information or a free quote.

Overhead Rail Systems for Fall Arrest

An overhead rail fall arrest system provides effective unrestricted fall protection for multiple users above a work zone.

When used as an overhead fall arrest system in conjunction with an inertial reel or retracting lifeline, the overhead rail system ensures the user remains in a fall restraint position at all times and the risk of mid-air suspension is reduced.

As an overhead system, the rail can be mounted to purlins, metal or concrete decks and ceilings or side-mounted on a wall. This provides compliant height safety for users where other fall arrest systems may be impractical or otherwise impair the versatility and efficiency of the worker.

Overhead Rail Systems for Abseil and Rope Access

A rigid rail system provides effortless mobility and higher levels of safety for abseil or rope access operations. Providing access to exterior windows and facades of multi-level buildings for safe and rapid access to “out of reach” areas for cleaning and maintenance.

An abseil overhead rail system enables the user to access large areas of the façade with ease without the need to disconnect or reconnect. The ropes can remain connected to the trolleys and simply be moved anywhere along the length of the rail. This not only increases safety but saves time and money on rope access cleaning and maintenance services

Davit Arm Systems 

Davit Arms are designed as a cantilevered anchorage device over balustrades, parapets and curtain walls for rope access work where workers are required to maintain building facades and equipment mounted on the external face of a structure. Davit systems are an engineered single-person device, designed to withstand a 12kN rope access load or safe working load of 400kg.

Rope access needle systems 

Rope access needles are designed as an anchorage device where access over non-load-bearing parapets, balustrades and lightweight curtain walls is required. Rope access is commonly required for building inspections and general maintenance of external facades, windows and equipment that cannot be accessed from a platform or enclosed safety system.
