LockRail – Panel System

Drop-in Safety Railings

  • LockRail is a unique drop-in panel system that allows for easy insertion and removal of the railing 
  • Custom designed components
  • Single step insertion for safe and effective auto-locking
  • Tapered railing posts allow for single person installation 
  • Galvanized sockets are usually flush mounted (grouted into the concrete slab or welded to holes in steel floor deck) 
  • Sockets can also be face mounted on the edge of a floor structure 
  • Materials: steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and sheet metal
  • Floor caps prevent the sockets from filling with debris when railing is removed
  • Optional quick-release lock bar for positive locking and fast removal

LockRail complies 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 CNESST Safety Code for the Construction Industry, chapter S-2.1, r.4, 3.8.2, et 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″
