Our Breakthrough in Fall Protection Safety Equipment

In 1980, one such product innovation led to the development of the RailGuard 200 Portable Railing System. Originally developed to protect roofers working on commercial projects, the RailGuard 200 product line quickly evolved into a multi-faceted, cross-functional product that is used throughout industrial plants and commercial facilities around the world. A completely free standing guardrail system, the RailGuard 200 meets or exceeds the OSHA requirements set forth for fall protection equipment. Not only is it a reliable piece of construction safety equipment, no drilling of holes nor tools are required to set it up. It can be assembled and taken down in minutes, and is powerful enough to withstand the weight of a 200-pound man. There are many rail lengths available as well as transport carts, swinging gates, and custom paint finishes and colors. The RailGuard 200 construction safety equipment has many uses including skylight guarding, roof hatch and machine guarding, roof edge protection, and dock maintenance work and door protection. Such a versatile low cost system is virtually invaluable to any work facility.
