Gorbel Tether Track Rigid Lifelines

According to OSHA, falls are among the most common causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. Engineered Fall Protection provides rigid rail fall protection solutions and fall arrest systems to prevent needless injury and death at the workplace. We will work with you to create a system for your specific application.

Rigid rail fall protection systems are substantial fall protection systems that can span large or small areas in a variety of styles and are ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications with minimal fall clearance. Rigid fall protection can be permanently mounted to existing structures or suspended from floor or wall mounted supports. There are also a variety of applications that can utilize a portable rigid rail design for applications that don't have overhead anchor points, or for applications where the workers are not consistently confined to one specific work area.

Gorbel fall protection is a leader in overhead fall protection systems and overhead fall arrest systems. Gorbel Tether Track rigid rail fall protection systems are found in a multitude of industries and are generally made up of three components; an anchor, body harness and a connecting device (lanyard). These systems can be designed to accommodate a single worker or multiple workers.

Rigid Ceiling Mounted Monorails

When needing to free up floor space, ceiling mounted monorails can provide innovative fall protection while preserving an open floor plan for other needs. Because column support is not needed, these systems are ideal for production facilities and warehouses with tall ceilings. Ceiling mounted monorails use existing support steel for overall anchorage strength. The compact, low-profile design of ceiling mounted monorails provides full protection for one or more workers without headroom concerns even if the facility has standard ceiling heights.

Features & Benefits:

  • Allows workers to travel in a straight line by providing maneuverability.
  • Available with curved track sections.
  • Enhanced versatility with various hanger options.
  • Infinite monorail lengths allowing up to 50' between each support (dual trussed track only).
  • Supports workers up to 310lbs with tools when used with 900LB Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harnesses and connecting device.
  • Dual bypassing track allows workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.
  • Fall Clearance Calculations.

Rigid Free-Standing Monorails

Free Standing Monorail Fall Protection Systems are ideal for protecting workers maintaining, inspecting, or loading/unloading railcars, tankers or flatbed trucks.

Features & Benefits:

  • Dual bypassing track allows workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.
  • Standard lengths up to 204' single and dual track systems, standard heights from 16' to 26'.
  • Corrosion resistant hardware with outdoor coatings available for maximum protection in outdoor environments.
  • Systems engineered to withstand wind, snow, and ice loads.
  • Integral trolley easily moves on enclosed track to keep fall arrest system in vertical plane.
  • Designed for workers up to 310 lbs. with tools when used with 900 lbs. Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harness and connecting device.
  • Goal post design which is comprised of two columns and a header.

Rigid Overhead Bridge Systems

Rigid overhead bridge systems are available as free standing systems to allow flexibility or as ceiling mounted systems for something more permanent.

CEILING MOUNTED SYSTEMS use the building structure for support, as the rail is mounted either perpendicular or parallel to the ceiling beams.
FREE STANDING SYSTEMS are best when floor space is available to install column supports, when changes in work practices are anticipated, and when a building structure isn't available.

Multiple bridges can be supplied for both ceiling mounted and free-standing systems which allow more than one worker to use the system at the same time.

Features & Benefits:

  • Rectangular coverage area.
  • Up to 18' bridge spans.
  • Consists of two runways and a traveling bridge for maximum coverage within a rectangular work area.
  • Lightweight aluminum bridge follows the worker, remaining directly overhead.
  • Designed for workers up to 310 lbs. with tools when used with 900 lbs. Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harness and connecting device.
  • Multiple bridges can support several workers when properly zoned.

Rigid Fold Away Systems

If your floor space is limited or fall protection isn't necessary on a regular basis, the Gorbel Tether Track Fold Away Fall Arrest System is the perfect solution.

Features & Benefits:

  • Position as needed, then fold away when done; maintains productivity without compromising safety.
  • Perfect solution for work cells requiring access of overhead cranes, when floor space is limited or when infrequent fall protection is necessary.
  • Trussed track accommodates single or multiple workers and allows bypass, dual bypassing track allows workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.
  • Unlimited lengths with up to 50' between supports and arm spans up to 20'.
  • Designed for workers up to 310 lbs. with tools when used with 900 lbs. Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harness and connecting device.
  • Designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M Construction standard, ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code, and NIOSH guidelines.

Rigid Swing Arm Systems

The Tether Track Swing Arm Fall Arrest System from Gorbel is ideal for fall protections in a circular or semi-circular fall protection with a compact footprint. Infinite variations allow workers to easily position the swing arm over the workspace and swing it out of the way when not in use.

Features & Benefits:

  • Provides circular or semicircular fall protection with a compact footprint.
  • Versatile and adaptable; the swing arm can be positioned over the workspace when needed and moved out of the way when not in use.
  • Standard arm lengths from 8' to 30', custom spans available upon request.
  • Track can accommodate single or multiple workers; dual bypassing track allows workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.
  • Designed for workers up to 310 lbs. with tools when used with 900 lbs. Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harness and connecting device.
  • Designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M Construction standard, ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code, and NIOSH guidelines.

Rigid Single Pole Systems

If standard multiple-column systems can't be utilized due to obstacles in the workspace, single pole fall protection systems provide the ideal solution. These systems only require a single foundation and are used regularly in tank car servicing or heavy-duty truck securing and tarping areas. Standard span lengths from 10' to 53' mean the system can be engineered to meet the requirements of most loading/unloading and maintenance facilities.

Features & Benefits:

  • Space-saving design allows for installation in areas of minimal floor space or limited room for foundations.
  • Utilizes only one free standing support with one single foundation.
  • Standard track lengths up to 53'.
  • Track can accommodate single or multiple workers; dual bypassing track allows workers to safely pass each other without disconnecting.
  • Designed for workers up to 310 lbs. with tools when used with 900 lbs. Maximum Arresting Force (MAF) energy absorbing lanyards, properly rated full-body harness and connecting device.
  • Designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M Construction standard, ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code, and NIOSH guidelines.
