Train Maintenance Safety & Fall Protection

Train maintenance, whether it involves servicing the mechanical components, cleaning, or conducting inspections, often requires workers to operate at heights, on uneven surfaces, or in close proximity to moving parts, all of which pose potential fall hazards. When installing permanent overhead fall arrest systems in train maintenance centers is difficult, using a folding system that can be "stowed away" when not in use seems an ideal solution. We've had firsthand experience with Fallprotec S.A folding Flexbow system a few years back. It's a beam that lets you set up a safeaccess rail overhead. Equipped with an integrated energy absorber, it is a lightweight beam and yet robust design for industrial applications.

What could be better than a height maintenance safety system that skips the whole lengthy process of setting up temporary structures like scaffolding and, as a bonus, trims down maintenance time?

Stairwell openings in shopping malls, airports, or train stations are frequently shielded by glass or screens. Glass serves the purpose of preserving visibility through the stairwell, and screens are utilized for various purposes, including advertising, disseminating vital information to visitors and travelers, conveying warnings, and updating news. Consequently, it is imperative to clean and maintain these areas due to their high traffic and exposure to dirt. Performing the cleaning and maintenance using suspension rails, such as SecuRail Pro or SafeAccess, is efficient, safe, and aesthetics. These aluminum rails are thoughtfully designed to seamlessly blend in with the modern architectural surroundings, ensuring they remain unnoticeable.

Suitable solution for double skin facades maintenance

Double skin facades are becoming a popular trend, therefore their maintenance. Many of these facades feature fixed or electrically movable sunshades on each floor, which require regular cleaning and upkeep, just like the windows of the building. To ensure the safety of workers walking on walkways between the two facades, where collective protection is absent, Fallprotec S.A recommends two types of fall arrest systems: a rigid SecuRailPro or a cable SecuRope, both overhead lifelines. In combination with a fall arrest block (SRL), they effectively reduce the fall distance. Their gliders/trolleys slide smoothly thanks to the high-quality bearings.

However, the rigid rail system offers an additional advantage by further reducing the fall distance. This feature is critical, particularly in areas with low fall clearance, such as the first floor of these buildings. Moreover, compared to the cable system, the rigid rail overhead lifeline transmits less force to the host structure in the event of a fall. Additionally, it usually harmonizes with the aesthetic of the building, ensuring seamless integration.

Why Fallprotec Davit arms ?

Fallprotec S.A Davit arms are a popular choice for suspended access to clean facades due to their flexibility, safety, ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and aesthetic benefits. They are designed to meet strict safety standards (EN795 & BS8610) and can be used to support various types of suspended access equipment such as rope access specialists or by a worker sitting on a chair or cradle fitted with a Ropeclimber hoist. They are relatively simple to operate and can be easily adjusted to suit the specific needs of the job. Additionally, they are an aesthetic solution as the arm can be removed when not in use, and the base can be covered and hidden, maintaining the aesthetics of the building.

Why Fallprotec Davit arms ?

Beskope solution for Silos and narrowed spaces

Silos are designed to store food in optimal conditions, maintaining temperature and humidity levels to ensure that the stored grains  remain fresh for extended periods. However, in order to preserve the quality of the stored food and prevent contamination, silos must be regularly maintained. Typically, access to silos is restricted, with narrow entry dimensions and only accessible from the top.
Fallprotec offers a safe and convenient solution to access these confined spaces by combining a tripod anchorage structure with the RopeClimber hoist. This system enables workers to be lifted up and down with the push of a button, making it the easiest and safest option available.

Secured walkways on top of trucks thanks to the Securail Pro Rail lifeline.

Working on top of trucks poses a high risk of falling from heights. However, setting up ground-based safety systems may not always be feasible, particularly in situations like unloading on a construction site where the site's structure or maneuverability makes it challenging to install safety equipment.

To address the risk of falls from truck tops, Fallprotec S.A installed a secured walkway on top of the truck, utilizing the compact Securail Pro rail. The walkway allows operators to safely access the valves while incorporating a retractable fall arrester to prevent falls within the first few centimeters. The addition of a guardrail ensures easy and secure movement on the truck.

This solution enables customers to transport goods in tankers, including cement, milk, cereals, liquids, powders, oil, gas, and plastics, while having a safety system with them at all times, ensuring their safety and the integrity of their machine.

Fallprotec contribution in the solar panels maintenance

Fallprotec S.A provides reliable solutions for this maintenance: guardrails, lifelines and anchor points. The Securope cable lifeline fits easily between panels, can be fastened on any roof, and can be used simultaneously by up to 4 people, making the maintenance quicker for a faster return to the panels’ full efficiency.

When it comes to solar panels ☀️ it unfolds in 3 steps:
1️⃣ Maintenance of the electrical connections and fixings. 
2️⃣ Running an electroluminescent test for potential hotspots.
3️⃣ Cleaning of the panels themselves.

Working at height cannot be avoided in the first task, so safety is critical, but the last two tasks can NOW be performed without even setting foot on the roof with the SolarCleano robot, which can be safely piloted from the ground cleaning and testing panels efficiently.

Testing firsthand the SafeAccess fall arrest system to protect people who work on top of trucks, trains, machines, or aircraft.

What are some of the risks when working on top of a vehicle?
1. Falling
2. Hitting the side of the machine in the process, if the safety system lets you fall for too long.
At Fallprotec, we tackle the problem at its root: the fall distance. Our SafeAccess monorail does not deflect in case of a fall. For optimal safety, we combined it with retractable fall arresters: they glide perfectly along the rail accompanying the user, but will retain a fall within the first centimeters. 
And it works! Over 100 sites worldwide chose this system to secure their workers on top of trucks, machinery, trains, or even aircraft.

Keeping emblematic buildings in good condition and ensure the safety of those who visit them.

Church roofs require proper maintenance to ensure the longevity of the building, especially those old ones with fragile or unstable tiles that need regular inspections and repairs to prevent costly future damages to the structural integrity. To guarantee the safety of maintenance workers, Fallprotec provides the rail lifeline SecuRail that allows users to perform their work more efficiently and effectively while moving freely along the sloped roof, which makes it less restrictive than other types of fall protection systems, such as anchor points.  Since it is a rigid system, it doesn't deflect under the constant pulling on these sloped roofs.  The cathedral of Clermont Ferrand, known as the Black Church has been equipped with this system.

Fallprotec systems on the Hofburg in Vienna (AT)

The Hofburg, in Vienna, is the former residence of the Habsburg dynasty, and since 1946 the residence of the president of the Austrian federation.

In order to enable safe working on the Hofburg roofs, we equipped the entire roof with anchoring devices.

The roof consists of copper standing seam. For this reason, the cable safety devices were mounted with special copper clamps, so that no galvanic corrosion occurs. Added to this were the many different spans (60-90cm) between the standing seams, which required custom-made brackets to adapt to all spans.

The centre of the building was made of sandstone. We decided to install the Securail Pro rail security system. Tensile tests were first carried out in accordance with EN795 to ensure that the structure could withstand the forces acting on it. After successful tests, we had brackets manufactured to allow the rail to be aligned correctly.

A total of around 800m of Securope cable lifelines, 100 individual anchor points and 180m of Securail Pro rails were installed to secure the entire roof surface and all roof hatches.

Installation in Paris: MastLadder

This summer, Fallprotec fitted out Mastladders to the four 50 m high pylons at the Georges Suant football stadium, in the outskirts of Paris. The site consisted of replacing a used suspended basket with our Mastladder. This operation required an on-site measurement to ensure that no interference penalized the installation, especially at the level of the upper floor. Drilling or welding could not be used to fix the ladder to the pylon. As a means of attachment, strapping was preferred. In fact, this process does not alter the corrosion resistance of the pylone.

Fallprotec was also present during the installation and commissioning of the ladders. The client expressed great satisfaction. In fact, at all stages of the project, he was able to rely on the expertise of Fallprotec, which led the project from start to finish.

At the top of this totem pole, a greenhouse 40 m high, planted with large Mediterranean trees. For the installation of this glass tiara, the company Eiffage Métal called on Fallprotec to supply 6 RopeClimber suspended chair. The installers were comfortably seated in their harnesses and could adjust and fix the glasses with great precision on the metal structure of the greenhouse. According to Eiffage itself, the operation was economically profitable compared to other solutions.

For over 5 years now, the RopeClimber has proven its high reliability in multiple working environments, congratulations to the entire installation team.

SecuRope horizontal lifeline on emblematic luxury hotel in Hondarribia, Spain

Horizontal lifelines require an annual review to certify that they are still suitable for use, in compliance with European Directive 89/686 / CE and European Regulations EN 795 Type C. The actions are carried out by installers homologated by Fallprotec.

Review of the horizontal SecuRope lifeline installed in the rooftop of the Parador hotel in Hondarribia, Spain. One of the characteristics of our SecuRope system is to be able to transit from level to level while keeping the continuity of the cable, which allows operators to be able to make the entire route of the line without disconnecting.

After 3 years of installation it is still in perfect condition, despite being close to the sea in a region exposed to both intense heat episodes and rainy seasons.

Et arkitektonisk kompleks byder på et rullende bjælkesystem designet af Fallprotec

Fallprotec har installeret en platform hos sin lokale partner Roofac i et indkøbscenter i Stockholm til indvendig rengøring af et atrium bestående af glasloft og glasvægge. Platformen bevæger sig i vandret plan takket være 2 par SafeAccess-skinner. Et par, 12 m lang, er fastgjort til bygningens struktur, det andet par, 4 m langt, ophænges til den første takket være 4 trolleys. Denne konfiguration giver adgang til hele loftets overflade. Arkitekten ønskede, at platformen skulle være demonterbar for at respektere arkitektonisk kvalitet på atriumet. Platformen løftes fra jorden til skinnerne og fastgøres til de fire trolleys med stifter. Når platformen er adskilt, bruges trolleyerne til at ophænge Ropeclimber Backpack og dermed tillade rengøringen af de vertikale overflader af atriumet. Til dette projekt blev 4 rullende bjælkesystemer leveret til de 4 atriumer i indkøbscenteret.

Nyrealisering med et Securail-system

Vores firma Fallprotec SA er betegnet ingeniør- og produktionsvirksomhed inden for højdeadgangsudstyr, som ligger et sted mellem bygningvedligeholdelsesenheder og abseil udstyr. Vores sortiment af aluminiumskinner og trolleyer gør det muligt for os at konstruere skræddersyede løsninger for sikker adgang for brugerne og let at betjene udstyr. Vedhæftet foto viser et typisk eksempel på dette på et projekt i Johannesburg SA. Bygningen har en indvendig facade, der krævede diskret monterede abseilskinner. Vores nye Securail-system er derfor installeret. Et projekt som dette kræver ikke kun topmateriale, men også tekniske færdigheder samt et lokalt partnerfirma, der driver hele showet fra koncept over projektledelse til installation og vedligeholdelse. Vi er virkelig glade for at have samarbejdet med firmaerne Ram Mountaineering and Gravity Access. Uden deres faglige input ville vi ikke engang turde røre et projekt som dette.
