Fall Protection

OSHA code requires fall protection be provided when working at 4′ in general industry and 6′ in the construction industry.  A fall arrest system is an active means of protecting personnel from the hazards associated with working at heights.

Tether Track - cutout

A complete personal fall arrest system includes an anchor, a body harness, and a connector.  A connector could be a self-retracting lanyard (SRL) or shock-absorbing fall arrest lanyard.

Tether Track Bridge System

A Tether Track Bridge System consists of two runways and a traveling bridge for maximum coverage in a rectangular work area.  The lightweight aluminum bridge follows personnel, remaining directly overhead the work area.

Systems are available in ceiling mounted or freestanding designs with unlimited runway lengths and up to 18′ bridge spans.  Systems are designed for workers up to 310 lbs. (with tools), when used with 900 lb. MAF (maximum arresting force) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses, and a connecting device.  If properly zoned, multiple bridges can be provided for a system, offering several workers fall protection simultaneously.

Tether Track Free Standing Monorail System

Tether Track Freestanding Monorail Systems provide freestanding support when building structure is unavailable or inadequate for ceiling mounted applications.  Available in cantilevered (shown to left) or goal post design.  Goal Post design is compromised of two columns and a header.  As opposed to cantilever, goal post design can be bolted directly into concrete floor, reducing the need for foundations.  To accommodate multiple workers, dual track systems are available, allowing workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.

Systems are available with unlimited runway lengths with support centers on standard systems from 16′ to 35′, and support centers on custom dual trussed track up to 50′.  Systems are designed for workers up to 310 lbs. (with tools), when used with 900 lb. MAF (maximum arresting force) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses, and a connecting device.

Tether Track Ceiling Mounted Monorail System

Tether Track Ceiling Mounted Monorail Systems provide mobility along a single axis for applications when workers need to travel in a straight line.  Curved sections are available in case your system needs to deviate from a straight line.  To accommodate multiple workers, dual track systems are available, allowing workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.

Systems are available with a variety of hanger options available to accommodate various building structures.  Unlimited runway lengths are possible with up to 50′ between supports (dual trussed track).  Systems are designed for workers up to 310 lbs. (with tools), when used with 900 lb. MAF (maximum arresting force) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses, and a connecting device.

Tether Track Swing Arm System

Tether Track Swing Arm Systems are similar to a jib crane as they provide fall protection in a circular or semi-circular footprint.  Versatile and adaptable; the swing arm can be positioned over the workspace when needed and moved out of the way when not in use.  To accommodate multiple workers, dual track systems are available, allowing workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.

Systems are available in wall mounted, column mounted, or freestanding designs in standard arm lengths from 8′ to 30′ (custom spans available upon request).  Infinitely variable friction brake or motorized rotation available.  Systems are designed for workers up to 310 lbs. (with tools), when used with 900 lb. MAF (maximum arresting force) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses, and a connecting device.

Tether Track Fold Away System

Tether Track Fold Away Systems deploy as needed, then fold away when done.  They are the perfect solution for work cells requiring access to overhead cranes, with limited floor space, or when infrequent fall protection is necessary.  To accommodate multiple workers, dual track systems are available, allowing workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.

Systems are available in wall mounted, column mounted, or freestanding designs in arm spans up to 20′.  Infinitely variable friction brake or motorized rotation available.  Systems are designed for workers up to 310 lbs. (with tools), when used with 900 lb. MAF (maximum arresting force) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses, and a connecting device.
