DBI-Sala Railok 90 vertical fall arrest rail system

Thursday, 31 March, 2011 | Supplied by: 3M Fall Protection

The DBI-Sala Railok 90 vertical fall arrest rail system can be used for fall protection for ladder and structure climbing. It is a vertical fall arrest rail system that optimises safety and maximises freedom of movement.

The vertical rail system provides improved safety for workers ascending and descending fixed ladders. The shuttle travels smoothly along the entire length of the rail allowing the user to move up and down the ladder, and will not snag or resist the climber’s motion. In the event of a fall, the shuttle locks on the rail, arresting the fall while minimising fall distances and load forces on the user. Additionally, the system does not restrict foot space on the ladder rungs and offers users complete freedom of movement as they climb.

Rather than using a webbed shock absorber that can deteriorate over time, the shuttle device employs an integrated metallic absorber that restricts fall distances and significantly reduces the forces on the user in the event of a fall.

The system is made from high-strength extruded stainless steel and aluminium, and is easily installed without special tools. It is available with a wide range of brackets, providing installation options in many different configurations - including narrow-gauge ladders where foot space is restricted. In applications requiring the use of a ladder where none is present, a solution is available using rail components machined to accept ladder rungs. The ladder rail provides the dual benefit of fall protection while meeting the need for efficient ascent and descent.

The system is suitable across multiple industries requiring fall protection for climbing applications including wind energy, telecommunications, oil and gas, and construction.
