The reasons to choose our fall protection X-Rail
Providing a good safety for staff is a key factor for a successful business. The cost of an accident to an employee or visitor could be huge for a company, not to mention the tragedy and personal suffering. Downtime for damaged machinery are another costly factor, especially downtime whilst under repair. This would be prevented with the correct fall protection system in place in the very beginning.
If your employees work at heights you need to eliminate hazards and risks of falling as much as possible. Fall accidents are a common cause to serious injuries or even fatal accidents at many companies. To avoid this, you need a fall protection system that is designed to prevent people from falling over, through or under the railing. Regulations require that the guardrails must be strong, high enough and consist of handrails (one pcs with panel and two pcs without panel) and a kickplate (at least 10 cm high).
The X-Rail system safely protect people from the risk of falling with a combination of posts, handrails, kick plates and if your installation needs it also solid panels. The use of solid panels prevents smaller items from being accidentally dropped onto the levels below, potentially causing harm to pedestrians and machinery.
Our fall protection system is placed on ledges where there is a possibility that people or things can fall off the edge. The product then helps to prevent fall accidents and creates security for those staying on the ledge.
The system can be installed once the mezzanine has been built, saving money on temporary scaffolding and other safety measures during the construction phase. X-Rail comes in two heights; 1 400 and 2 300 mm, and can be installed in a number of different heights and center widths giving you as a customer a choice of your preferred configuration. The system is compatible with our machine protection X-Guard in areas where edge protection is not required.
The X-Rail is quickly and easily installed either directly into a concrete floor, bolted into the steel mezzanine I beams of the mezzanine structure or on several different substrates, including 38 mm plywood or metal grid channels. The installation of the modular handrail is also easy, the existing key hole slots on the posts gives you the choice of one or two handrails depending on your needs.
To ensure that maximum safety is achieved you also have the choice of installing mesh, solid or clear panels depending on the nature of the installation and the requirements. By using a panel and the kick plate, you avoid any gaps and thereby prevent accidents with smaller objects to falling onto lower levels.
Not only does X-Rail system gives you and your employees a huge factor of safety, it also helps you save money and opens new opportunities that has not previously been available. With the X-Rail you will get a strong, easy to install and completely modular system that will satisfy your needs and improve safety at your workplace.
