Fall protection solution for working with a tank arm

Loading and unloading containers is a daily job when you refer to harbor areas. Another type of work that can be done here is tank cleaning. Workers will need to climb on top of the trailer in order to gain access to the hatch on top for cleaning the inside of the tank.

When a trailer is not equipped with foldable guardrails, as seen in some cases, our innovative rail system can offer the perfect solution.

Since guardrails can obstruct the workers in maintaining objects underneath the crane, a lifeline or horizontal rail system can be more desirable. Workers can attach themselves by means of a lanyard to the systems runner and so easily move along the trajectory while being constantly anchored. Read more…
