Modular Rigid Rail Fall Protection

Active Fall Arrest protection that is easy, economical, and flexible to implement.

Modular Overhead Fall Protection

When properly utilized, rigid rail overhead protection outperforms traditional cable-based lifeline products by arresting falls at much shorter distances than other lifeline products. Lighthouse Safety provides versatile rigid fall protection in a range of permanent and mobile fall designs. All our rigid rail solutions comply with US OSHA 1910, ANSI Z359.6 & Canadian CSA Z259.2 standards for Engineered Fall Protection.

Increase Productivity

Rigid Rail systems are designed to support as many as 8 users with optional by-pass on a single overhead solution enabling more efficient and effective work routines without jeopardizing safety.

Easy to Use

Although fall arrest systems require proper safety training and a rescue procedure, overhead rigid rail lifeline systems are completely hands-free and enable users to concentrate on the task at hand.

Shorter Fall Distance

Rigid rail systems have the advantage over cable-based lifeline systems because they reduce fall distance and are often preferred when work is performed less than 12’ above a lower level.


Our enclosed track rigid rail systems are the most reliable engineered fall protection in use today and the 1:100 movement-to-weight ratio keeps the lifeline directly overhead eliminating in-line swing fall.

Rigid Rail FAQs

What is a Rigid Rail fall arrest system?

One of the most common fall arrest solutions, Rigid Rail is an overhead track and trolley fall arrest system, paired with a self-retracting lifeline for workers at height and provide fall arrest solutions in environments that require very short arrest distances.

What rail lengths are available?

With splicing, rails can be engineered to any required length. Typical maximum length to fit on a truck is about 40’.

What fall clearance is required?

Many factors determine fall clearance requirements when using fall protection systems. The lowest clearance requirements can be as little as 2’ up to over 20’ depending on equipment used, system deflection and other safety factors .

Who can install a Rigid Rail system?

Certified installers that are also Competent Persons and under the direct supervision of a QP. Additional trainings and certifications in areas such as lift operation, rigging, and steel erection are often required.

Can Rigid Rail be relocated after it has been installed?

Yes, provided new location can sustain loads and sufficient clearance exists. Inspection and certification is required to verify condition of components before relocation occurs.

Is a Horizontal Lifeline or Rigid Rail system better?

Depends on the application, task, clearance, and feasibility of installation. Rigid Rail offers superior fall distances while Horizontal Lifelines can be installed places Rigid Rail may not be feasible.

What is the minimum ground clearance?


What are the annual inspection requirements?

The frequency will depend upon the environment, location and usage but should be at least every 12 months.
