The Fold-Away Swing Arm Fall Arrest System is an excellent solution for facilities that require a foldable fall arrest system to provide protection while staying out of the way when not in use. This system is particularly useful in facilities where overhead cranes occupy the space or when maintenance is carried out in narrow bays without usable ceilings. The arms can be fully extended, offering workers a fixed path of rigid track fall protection, with the flexibility to travel up to 30 degrees off-center of the track. When not in use, the track and its arms can be conveniently folded against their support columns, leaving ample room for large overhead cranes. With standard track lengths ranging from 23 to 163 feet and support spacing distances of up to 50 feet, this system can span multiple work areas with ease, providing comprehensive fall protection coverage.
Safety and reliability are paramount in this system, designed to accommodate a maximum person weight, plus tools, of up to 310 pounds when used with energy-absorbing self-retracting lanyards. Custom systems are available to cater to heavier workers up to 420 pounds. The Fold-Away Swing Arm Fall Arrest System offers convenient field assembly with bolt-together components, eliminating the need for welding. The enclosed track design ensures smooth and quiet trolley travel, reducing the possibility of dirt or dust build-up that might interfere with its movement. Meeting or exceeding OSHA and ANSI standards, this fall arrest system provides a secure and compliant solution for various work environments.
