Tall Barrier System

Information
  • 94″ tall screened barrier with an enhanced level of fall protection 
  • Provides protection on scaffolds or ladders up to a platform or step height of 3 ft. 
  • Ideal for builders, roofers, scaffolders, demo contractors, supply houses, rental stores, masons & renovators 
  • Greatly reduces the risk of objects falling or from being blown off a protected level 
  • Each Strap Kit contains all the components needed for 1 rail member
  • A rail member could be the top rail, midrail, toeboard, or overhead strap
  • Each orange strap is 4″ wide & tensioned using its own ratchet
  • The maximum possible tension applied is 2,500 lb. per strap
  • A structural engineer must verify the adequacy of the supporting structure prior to each installation

StrapRail® 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®

  • 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

The following drawings show identical anchor posts at each end of the system however systems can be be configured with different anchor posts at each end.
