  • Safety Railings and Custom Access Platforms Installation – Industrial Safety Rail Systems and Guardrails
    on site assessment Guardrails Provide Barriers For The Unwitting or Distracted Guardrails interchangeably referred to as safety railings are often used to provide a visible and unmistakable barrier around dangerous machinery and equipment including for the benefit of unwitting or distracted workers This prevents accidental access by unauthorized personnel and can clearly delineate a zone where protective equipment is required Where needed they can be constructed strong enough to survive being hit with a forklift or other piece of equipment Locations in a typical plant which would benefit include Along unprotected open staircases and elevated walkways Along access ramps such as wheelchair or equipment ramps Along the unprotected edges of loading dock platforms Along indoor mezzanines balconies parapets catwalks and other walkways Along unprotected indoor ledges such as the ledges that run along a factory wall next to an overhead gantry crane Around factory machinery where workers may fall in or fall through Around the top edges of boilers smelters chemical vats etc Around high voltage equipment such as generators or electrical fuse boxes Around an open elevator shaft Around open holes or pits and For crowd or traffic control In most situations we serve as installation contractors when railings are needed along an elevated work surface and when they will provide all of the fall protection necessary However where the work to be done requires the worker to move above or outside the railings a fall arrest system or other form of fall protection such as netting must be used On ramps stairs walkways and uneven surfaces handrails help to prevent slip and fall injuries These locations can be inside or out These modular systems are quick and easy to install require no on site welding and can be made ADA compliant Access Platforms Can Be Permanent or Portable and Custom Fabricated Access platforms can be permanent such as a mezzanine or elevated walkway or portable such as rolling stairs and work stands that can be moved out of the way when not in use In many situations an off the shelf product is sufficient In others a custom fabrication is required Because we deal with all of the major manufacturers on a regular basis we are able to pick the best product to meet your need without being restricted to a specific product line Whether your primary consideration is the weight of the system construction materials removable handrails size and height of the platform or anything else there is likely an existing product that meets your need If not our engineers can create a design that we will fabricate to meet your unique need As one example of a custom solution we recently fabricated stainless steel rolling work stands with a specific shape for use in equipment maintenance at a pharmaceutical plant The custom shape was required due to space limitations and the stainless steel provided the needed sterility for the application The plans designed by our engineer were reviewed and approved by our customer and we delivered

  • Skylight Railings and Screens – Skylight Railing Safety Covers and Guards Fall Protection
    More Dangerous Than They Appear Skylight railings and screens that lack fall protection railing safety covers guards guardrails or cages are a blind danger Skylights are among the most dangerous areas on any roof To the untrained eye they might appear safe as there is no visible opening however they are not designed to support the weight of a falling worker Structurally they are no different than a hole in the roof and OSHA properly considers them as such Numerous deaths have been caused by workers accidentally backing into a skylight and falling through to the floor below That is why OSHA 1910 23 a 4 requires that Every skylight floor opening and hole shall be guarded by a standard skylight screen or a fixed standard railing on all exposed sides Despite the fact that this has been an OSHA priority for over 30 years thousands of buildings throughout the country are still not in compliance even when workers are performing tasks in the immediate area All too often the exposure is not realized until a worker is killed Skylight Guardrails or Screens Provide The Barrier Needed For OSHA Compliance As noted in the OSHA regulation mentioned above the two main methods for guarding this hazard are railings guardrails and screens safety covers Guardrails Installing a skylight guardrail system works exactly as you would expect it to It provides a fixed barrier preventing a worker from accidentally entering a danger zone Modular non penetrating systems can be assembled in different combinations around almost any configuration Installation is simple inexpensively providing both worker safety and OSHA compliance Because it is non penetrating it can be dismantled and removed during roof replacement when alternate forms of fall protection are used and replaced at the end of the project Screens Skylight screens are available in a wide variety of styles allowing them to be used for any type of frame on any type of roof They work by protecting the light itself rather than by creating a barrier to the area Because they are more visible than guardrail from the floor below they are most often used with opaque windows To meet OSHA requirements the screen must be capable of withstanding a load of at least 200 pounds applied perpendicularly at any one point on the screen CAL OSHA requires 400 pounds As with modular guardrail the screens are non penetrating Using standard tools the screen is attached to the sides of the base and locked into position using clamping rings They utilize a compression assembly that requires no drilling into either the roof or the base The following are examples of applications for these solutions FallProof s installation of skylight screens help protect workers on the roof who might otherwise fall forward or backward through the skylights to the floor below which can result in serious injury and or death The model pictured here is the KeeGuard by Kee Safety KeeGuard railings can be adapted to accommodate any rooftop configuration as pictured

  • Debris Netting – Bridge and Construction Safety Netting Systems - Debris Nets
    a permanent solution could be developed The full restoration was completed in 2013 This project demonstrated one of the most useful applications of debris netting The initial instance of falling mortar occurred in 2005 and it was not until eight years later that the restoration was completed Wrapping the weakened structure in nets kept the historic area safe while providing time for the logistical details to be worked out Boonton NJ Boonton Railroad Bridge This solution was installed under the bridge for the workers who were replacing railroad ties on the rail line above and prevented both personnel and construction material from falling into the Rockaway River below As always FallProof came in on time and on budget A fine mesh liner is often used with either personnel or debris only nets during rail bridge maintenance to prevent pieces of creosote soaked railroad ties from falling into and contaminating the water below Here we used our WS 70 liner with a 1 8 square mesh Both larger and smaller mesh sizes are available East Hampton CT The Historic Comstock Covered Bridge This bridge built in 1840 spans the Salmon River north of Route 16 and consists of two distinct sections The 80 foot main span is a Howe truss which combines vertical iron rods and diagonal timbers and was widely used in railroad construction as well as for highway and factory bridges The 30 foot east span is the only remaining example in Connecticut of an enclosed wooden pony truss one with no overhead roof or other bracing Due to its historic nature no damage to the structure was allowed so we designed and fabricated special non penetrating brackets and outrigger arms to cantilever the nets over the stream Ft Lee NJ George Washington Bridge These nets were installed around the walkway during work to replace a water pipe and prevented tools and other items from falling into the Hudson River The nets were manufactured and installed within a short time to accommodate the prime contractor s schedule The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey closed the traffic lane adjacent to the walkway during installation As is customary on this type of job temporary fall protection systems were used by our crew while installing the system from the walkway Philadelphia PA The Henry Avenue Bridge Project Also known as the Wissahickon Memorial Bridge this masterpiece was completed in 1932 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 The main span of this open spandrel bridge is 288 feet long The original design called for a lower level for a subway line that was never built Our services included the engineering design and installation of a 33 000 square foot debris containment netting system for use during rehabilitation of the bridge This provided protection for pedestrians in Fairmount Park and drivers on Lincoln Drive both of which are located beneath the bridge where it crosses Wissahickon Creek The 170 foot roadway height prevented the use of

  • Personnel Safety Nets – Fall Protection Horizontal and Specialty Netting Systems
    serve as a second floor so that a worker will fall no more than a foot or two in the case of an accident Personnel Netting Can Serve Distinctively Different Purposes There are three types of personnel safety netting solutions personnel cantilever or horizontal perimeter systems same floor systems and a combination of personnel safety and debris containment netting Personnel Cantilever Netting Systems Personnel cantilever systems are used on the exteriors of high rise buildings under construction or renovation In this system nets are hung around the perimeter of a certain floor e g the 5th floor using horizontal outrigger poles If a worker falls into the net it folds down and inward to absorb the impact and then levels out again This cushions the impact and prevents the worker from being seriously injured or bouncing off when they hit the net Additionally the entire system has the capability to be jumped to higher floors as the building rises In case of bad weather a cantilever system is easily pulled in from where it is attached This protects it from being damaged by high winds heavy rain hail or snow It also is used on bridges such as those used for railroads where a horizontal lifeline might be difficult to attach to the structure or limit worker movement In this scenario the net is attached to the underside of the bridge with outrigger nets on both sides Workers can move and perform tasks freely on the bridge structure while also being protected from injury if they fall Same Floor Netting Systems Same floor systems are used in the interiors of buildings under construction In this case the nets are installed horizontally in the spaces between beams before concrete is poured or the floor is laid down They are stretched between the inside corners of the beams and provide both a working surface and a fall prevention surface Same floor nets catch workers falling from the floor where the nets are installed but are not designed to absorb the impact from a higher floor Therefore they must be used on every floor of a building where workers are working and should be installed as close to the working surface as possible Also same floor systems are often used on roof replacement or rehabilitation projects where workers are at risk of falling through the existing roof at structural voids On many bridge renovations a hybrid system is used with same floor nets installed directly under the bridge surface to protect against a worker falling through and cantilevered nets installed on outrigger poles to protect against a worker falling off the bridge Personnel and Debris Containment Combination Solution Personnel safety nets are easily combined with debris containment netting A fine mesh liner is inlaid into the heavy duty personnel net to catch falling objects such as building debris and dropped tools or equipment Below are a few of the netting installation projects FallProof has completed Myrtle Beach SC Zipline Adventures A custom design
