I have to install an overhead fall arrest system. Why should I choose rigid rail instead of an overhead cable system?
The main advantage of selecting rigid rail compared to overhead cable systems for fall arrest is that there is little or no deflection in the event of a fall. As this limits the fall distance, the operator is less likely to incur injuries.
Another advantage is the effortless and uninterrupted movement that rigid rail systems supply. Unlike an overhead cable line which could snag on the intermediate supports, the trolleys glide easily on the line.
See below a video that we have made which highlights the main reasons why a system such as RAPTOR is much more ideally suited to this type of application.
