RopeRail® complies with:

  • Full compliance with US Federal OSHA Standard 1926.502 “Fall Protection” – click here for more information
  • Cal/OSHA (horizontal load of 20 pounds per lineal foot at the top rail)
  • Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, REGULATION 213/91 FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS Section 26.3(5) (point load of 150 pounds applied to every 8 feet of guardrail at the top rail equivalent to 19 lb per linear foot)
  • Quebec’s CCST Safety Code for the Construction Industry, 3.8.3

Other guardrails:

  • Temporary guardrails are usually constructed of wood, steel or wire rope with netting & not usually tested after installation
  • Workers & safety inspectors do not deliberately lean on these barriers since they suspect the guardrail could fail
  • Wood guardrails are costly to build and the lumber is scrapped at the end of the job
  • Steel guardrails are heavy and require ample storage space
  • Wire rope guardrails are often slack which allows the top rail wire to deflect below the OSHA minimum height of 39″

 

StrapRail® Strap Kit

  • Installed StrapRail® System is under continuous self-test with considerable tension on the straps & anchors
  • Fully tensioned state proves anchors have been correctly installed & that the railing is safe for use
  • No other temporary guardrail system offers this self test benefit
  • Workers & safety inspectors can deliberately lean on our system without fear of falling
  • StrapRail® is fully engineered, lightweight & reusable for many years
  • It is compact and easily transportable or shipped
  • We can quote & manufacture customized systems for your needs

TE-40

  • Maximum working comfort thanks to innovative, perfectly balanced design with ergonomic D-grip
  • Extremely wide range of applications thanks to rapidly interchangeable chucks
  • With this you can drill a 5/8″ diameter hole 6″ deep in concrete in 20 seconds
  • Use a Ferro detector such as a Hilti PS 35 – it locates rebar in a concrete slab, and shows the depth of any rebar steel as well
