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 Systeme auf der Hofburg Wien

Die Hofburg in Wien ist die ehemalige Residenz der Habsburger Dynastie und seit 1946 Residenz des österreichischen Bundespräsidenten.
Damit die Dacharbeiten auf der Hofburg gesichert durchgeführt werden können, haben wir das komplette Dach mit Anschlageinrichtungen ausgestattet.
Das Dach besteht aus Kupferstehfalz. Aus dem Grund wurden die Seilsicherungen mit speziellen Kupferklemmen montiert, so dass keine galvanische Korrosion entsteht. Hinzu kamen die vielen unterschiedlichen Spannweiten (60-90cm) zwischen den Falzprofilen, die maßgefertigte Konsolen erforderlich machten, um sich an alle Spannweiten anzupassen.
Das Zentrum des Gebäudes wurde aus Sandstein gefertigt. Wir haben uns für die Montage der Schienensicherung Securail Pro entschieden. Zuerst wurden Zugversuche gemäß EN795 durchgeführt, um sicherzustellen, dass die Struktur den einwirkenden Kräften standhält. Nach den erfolgreichen Versuchen, haben wir Konsolen herstellen lassen, die eine korrekte Ausrichtung der Schiene ermöglichen.
Insgesamt wurden rund 800m Securope Seilsicherungen, 100 Einzelanschlagpunkte und 180m Securail Pro Schienen montiert, um die gesamte Dachfläche und alle Dachluken zu sichern.

Installation in Paris: MastLadder

In diesem Sommer stattete Fallprotec die vier 50 m hohen Pylone des Fußballstadions Georges Suant am Stadtrand von Paris mit Mastladdern aus. Die Arbeiten bestanden darin, einen gebrauchten Hängekorb durch unsere Mastladder zu ersetzen. Dieser Vorgang erforderte eine Messung vor Ort, um sicherzustellen, dass keine Störungen die Installation beeinträchtigten, insbesondere auf der Ebene des Obergeschosses. Bohren oder Schweißen konnte nicht verwendet werden, um die Leiter am Mast zu befestigen. Als Befestigungsmittel wurde eine Umreifung bevorzugt. Tatsächlich verändert dieses Verfahren die Korrosionsbeständigkeit des Pylons nicht.

Fallprotec war auch bei der Installation und Inbetriebnahme der Leitern anwesend. Der Kunde zeigte sich sehr zufrieden. Tatsächlich konnte er sich in allen Phasen des Projekts auf das Fachwissen von Fallprotec verlassen, das das Projekt von Anfang bis Ende leitete.

The Saint Gobain tower in Paris La Défense, a play of cubes and light that rises up to 170 m in height. This tower is the new headquarters of Saint Gobain, a showcase of the know-how and international image of this group, leader in building materials and high technical performance.

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.

An architectural complex welcomes a rolling beam system designed by Fallprotec

Fallprotec has installed with its local partner Roofac a platform in a Stockholm shopping center for the interior cleaning of an atrium consisting of glass ceiling and glass walls.

The platform moves in the horizontal plane thanks to 2 pairs of Safeaccess rails. One pair, 12 m long, is attached to the structure of the building, the second pair, 4 m long, is suspended to the first thanks to 4 trolleys. This configuration provides access to the entire surface of the glass ceiling.

The architect wanted the platform to be dismantlable in order to respect the architectural quality of the atrium. The platform is lifted from the ground to the rails and attached to the four trolleys by pins.

When the platform is disassembled, the trolleys are used to suspend Ropeclimber Backpack and thus allow the cleaning of the vertical surfaces of the atrium.

For this project, 4 rolling beam systems were delivered for the 4 atriums of the shopping center.

New realization with a Securail system

Our company Fallprotec S.A. has been positioned as Engineering and Manufacturing company of Height Access Equipments, which is somewhere between Building Maintenance Units and Abseiling Equipments. Our range of Aluminium rails and trolleys allows us to engineer bespoke solutions for safe access for the users and easy to operate equipment.

Attached photo shows a typical example of this on a project in Johannesburg S.A. The building has an inner facade which required a discreetly installed abseiling rails. Our new Securail system has been installed therefore. A project like this requires not only top-notch material, also engineering skills as well as a local partner company which runs the whole show from concept, project management, installation and maintenance.

We are really happy to have partnered with the companies Ram Mountaineering and Gravity Access, without their professional input we would not even dare to touch a project like this.
