Overhead Track

Overhead track systems minimise the consequences of falls from height. This, in addition to overhead conveyor systems, is a robust, suitable solution should working at height be unavoidable and guarding not achievable.

The overhead conveyor and track system is typically designed for multiple users per track at any one time and requires more advanced training on working at height and PPE. Fall arrest systems will require suitable rescue plans and rescue training. 

Overhead Conveyor Systems

Overhead conveyor systems are ideal for installation in industrial environments, warehouses, loading bays and vehicle/aircraft maintenance workshops. Overhead track systems prevent the pendulum effect which is often a problem with conventional horizontal life line systems as well as not deflecting when loaded.

These systems must be inspected before and after every use by a trained user. They must be inspected & tested by a suitable working at height Specialist Company a minimum of every 12 months and/or after every fall.

Overhead track systems provide continuous fall protection for locations where overhead protection is required, such as vehicle loading, machine maintenance, building maintenance as well as access to platforms and gantries.

Overhead track systems give the user maximum accessibility and hands-free access. The rigid overhead conveyor systems prevent the pendulum effect which is often a problem with conventional horizontal life line systems. Overhead track systems comply with the following standards:

EN 795 Class D

Testing/Inspection standards and frequency:
Class D Fall Protection systems under BS EN 795- minimum of every 12 months and/or after every fall by a working at height specialist company
These overhead conveyor systems and any associated PPE equipment must be inspected before and after every use by a trained user.

Overhead track and conveyor systems are available in a range of materials and finishes, Please see below:

Materials
  • Galvanised Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Zinc Plated Steel
Finishes
  • Electro-polished for greater longevity

Overhead conveyor systems can be fixed to structural steelwork as well as purpose built gantries and davits. Their flexible design copes with any bends or changes in level. 

Overhead track systems are also known as:

Rigid rail, fall arrest track , fall restraint rail, fall protection track

These systems are commonly installed in the following sectors:

Industrial

Retail

Hotels / Leisure

Healthcare

Utilities
