What is a Rigid Rail System?
Rigid rail is an overhead fall arrest system, paired with self-retracting lifelines, is a reliable, cost-effective way to reduce the risk of injury in elevated work environments where stable anchor points are challenging. Typical rigid rail solutions are found internally in manufacturing plants where ceilings cannot anchor a lifeline, or in rail yards and airport hangars.
