Fallprotect Securail Vertical


 

The SecuRail rigid anchor line is permanently installed on a ladder or other structure to protect people from falling when they get access at height above 3 m. The SecuRail consists of a aluminium rail fixed with brackets to the structure.

The rigid anchor line SecuRail allows vertical movement of a user where there is a risk of falling more than 3 meters without the need for the user to disconnect himself from the rail at any time. The user wears a harness to EN 361 fitted with a connector according to EN 362 and attaches to the system via a trolley that moves along the rail.

Vertical fall arrest Securail meets the tests prescribed by standard EN 353-1:2002. After removal of the presumption of conformity with this standard, the PPE Directive, it was subjected to further tests prescribed by the working group WG2 - performance tests: dynamic drop test, dynamic fall back drop test.

All the components of the Securail Vertical are manufactured from stainless steel and anodised aluminium, which has a great resistance to atmospheric degradation. The trolley is fitted with a textile energy absorber which has a lifespan of 5 years. After 5 years the trolley will be returned to Fallprotec for renewal of the energy absorber.

The main specifications are :

  • Number of users 2 between two adjacent brackets.
  • Distance between two brackets 3m and 5 m with strengthening
  • Tested in curves 90°.
  • Replacement of the rail section which was subjected to a fall.
  • Roof, wall or ceiling configuration.
  • Rigging on call deck, hot deck and standing seam roof.

The anchoring device Securail has been tested and approved by Apave according to standard EN 795 class D
