Bespoke Arrest Systems

The Met-Track® Rigid Rail system comprises a permanently installed rigid anchorage rail and free running anchorage connectors housed within the enclosed profile. Available in either standard or reinforced configurations Met-Track® can be used for up to 8 users with supports of up to 12m.

Reduced Freefall distance

The Met-Track® Rigid Rail Fall Arrest System offers many advantages over traditional wire based systems, one of which is that in the event of the fall the profile will not stretch, unlike its wire alternative. This minimises the fall distance which in turn further reduces the likelihood of injury from a fall. These are important factors that must be considered when selecting fall arrest systems including the fall arrest equipment, ladders and all other fall arrest devices.

Unlike wire systems the Met-Track® Fall Arrest system can be configured for self-rescue, accompanied descent or remote rescue arrangements.

Modular Configuration

A further benefit of the Met-Track® Rigid Rail systems is the ability to have a multiple rail configuration, allowing users the ability to pass one another whilst carry out work. Traditional system prevent this cross over which reduces the efficiency of carrying out the required task meaning the users may spend more time waiting for other operators to complete their work.

Utilising the correct design layout, Met-Track® offers safe access to high level work areas that would normally be classed as high risk. As a preference Met-Track® should be installed in a fall restraint configuration to minimise the possibility of a fall. In circumstances that do not allow for fall restraint Met-Track® can be installed to provide workers with the ultimate fall arrest protection.

For Architectural applications the Met-Tracks can be incorporated into the structural design allowing it to be concealed within areas such as the eaves of a building, ensuring that the overall aesthetics are intact.

Free movement for multiple users with bypass capability

Trolley movement on the Met-Track® Rigid Rail systems is FLUID! The trolley moves when you move! A user doesn’t have to wrestle the trolley over and through intermediate supports.

Utilising our DUAL profile, or fitting single rails close to each other, users have the ability to cross each other in complete safety whilst carrying out their work at the various locations.

We also have a range of fall restraint systems to suit your needs too.

System Types

Ceiling Mounted Monorails

When floor space is at a premium, Met-Track ® Rigid Rail systems provide a permanent fall arrest solution without the need for floor mounted structures leaving the floor area free for the purposes. Ideal for production and warehouse facilities, vehicle loading/unloading, industrial cleaning and maintenance.

Free Standing Monorails

Met-Track® Free Standing Monorail systems provide independent, permanent fall arrest solutions over long spans in areas where there are no existing support structures. These can be configured as Cantilever arms, T-frame structures or goal post types structures which span the complete access area.

Swing Arm Systems

Met-Track® Rigid Rail Swing arm systems typically provide a permanent fall arrest solution for areas where overhead cranes and fall arrest systems share the same space. Swing Arm systems provide circular/semi circular coverage within a limited footprint and when not is use can be moved out of the way so as not to cause an obstruction.

Combine the swing out arms and a simple monorail to combine a complete foldaway system. These can be supplied as independent floor mounted systems or can be mounted to existing columns or walls. Motorised arm rotation is also available and generally required on longer/multiple bay systems.

Travelling Bridges

Met-Track® Rigid Rail travelling bridge systems are available as ceiling mounted or free standing configurations. Ceiling mounted systems are mounted to existing steelwork such as roof trusses to leave floor spaces free from additional support steelwork. Floor mounted systems maybe preferred if floor space is available or ceiling support is not possible. Multiple bridges can be supplied for both ceiling and floor mounted systems offering fall protection to multiple users from the same structure.
